Post operation cosmetic surgery notes for Eyelid / eye lift Surgery
The first one to two hours after cosmetic surgery are spent in the recovery room where cold compresses are applied to minimize swelling.
When you are fully alert, you will be able to return home in the care of a friend or a family member. You will be encouraged to keep your head elevated for several days and to use cold compresses to reduce swelling and bruising. There is very little if any pain following eyelid surgery. Pain medication is prescribed, although it is usually not necessary.
Eye ointment is prescribed for use at night and eye drops for daytime use until the symptoms resolve. Some patients experience blurred vision, tearing and irritation for several days after surgery, and the eyes may fatigue more easily during this time. In most cases the bruising is minimal and resolves after the first week.
The stitches are removed five to seven days following surgery. The incisions may remain pink for a short period after surgery. They can be covered easily by make up after the stitches are removed. They usually fade and become inconspicuous in six to eight weeks. Most patients return to work and social activities after one week.
Heavy physical exercise is avoided for three weeks following cosmetic eyelid surgery.
