When a patient is preparing to get blepharoplasty, or eyelid surgery, they must learn about the blepharoplasty recovery process. Following post-operative care instructions during recovery is vital for preserving results.

For the first two weeks of your blepharoplasty recovery, it is important to avoid wearing contact lenses. Putting in and taking out contact lenses can affect the healing tissues and thus the results of the procedure. For those patients who regularly wear glasses, this can be resumed shortly after the blepharoplasty is complete.

For more information about the best and safest ways to treat your eyelids during blepharoplasty recovery, speak with Dr. R. Lee Steely, a board-certified plastic surgeon. Dr. Steely has a wealth of experience in the medical field, so call or email us today and arrange an appointment.
