An upper blepharoplasty is a simple outpatient procedure, and recovery usually takes two weeks or more. Most people find that they can resume normal activity within a week to 10 days after their procedure. You’ll need to apply cold compresses to minimize swelling, particularly in the first 48 hours.
Why Do People Get Upper Blepharoplasty?
A droopy upper eyelid can impact your expressions, making you look depressed, angry, or exhausted. Upper blepharoplasty brings the eyelid to a natural resting place, which can give you a younger, more awake, and totally refreshed appearance.
For those whose sagging eyelids have fallen into their field of vision, repairing the upper eyelid is a medical necessity. Not only can this obstruct your eyesight, but it can also cause or worsen other eye conditions such as amblyopia. At Parkhurst NuVision, we can design a personalized surgery that will help you see your full field of vision again while offering you the natural-looking cosmetic benefits our procedures are known for.
