Eyelid Lift to Upper & Lower Eyelid Surgery
Blephoraplasty – (Upper Eyes)
For this procedure the upper eyelid stiches are very small and come out on day 4. Depending on your profession and need for personal discretion you may need to allow 7-10 days before returning to work however many patients are wearing make-up by the 8th day. A consult visit with our doctor will determine your personal timeframe.
Blephoraplasty – (Lower Eyes)
For this procedure you can expect some small bruising under the eyes that can easily be covered with our Jane Iredale Corrective Cove up. Stitches are extremely small and are removed at days 4-6.
Eyes will appear more open and more youthful after the swelling goes down. As always, results may vary. Consult your doctor for a realistic expectation of your personal outcome.
