Recovery Tips for Your Best Blepharoplasty

It is no secret that the eyes have a profound impact on the appearance of the face. Our eyes don’t only reveal our emotions when we want them to; sometimes they may give a false perception. When the delicate tissue of the eyelids becomes saggy, the eyes aren’t as open as they once were. They look tired and, sometimes, they can look unfriendly. Blepharoplasty is the eyelid surgery that can resolve this problem. Here, we discuss how to make the most of this procedure by planning well for recovery.

Preparation is Everything

Before big events, we usually like to prepare ourselves. For example, we may review important information before a meeting with a client. Brides and grooms often prepare for their wedding day by losing weight or having minor cosmetic treatments done. If you’re thinking of having blepharoplasty, it is wise to prepare for recovery before the day of surgery. Preparation is everything.

  • While it may not take a full two weeks to recover from blepharoplasty, we recommend arranging this amount of time off. This means taking time off work, social obligations, exercise (other than walking), and normal family and household responsibilities. Arranging for sufficient help enables you to focus on the rest your body needs to heal properly.
  • Review your post-op instructions before the day of surgery. This gives you the opportunity to ask any questions that may arise. Your instructions may also include details about prescription pain medication. This prescription should be filled before surgery to ensure no lag time in which discomfort can occur.
  • Invest in some new accessories. If you’ve been wanting a wide-brimmed hat and large sunglasses, now is the time to make these your new favorite accessories. After blepharoplasty, it is necessary to protect healing tissue from UV exposure. Making sunscreen, sunglasses, and hats a new habit can also help maintain the improvements achieved with this procedure.

Your eyes are a representation of your personality, your emotions, and your character. Don’t let your eyes portray you as something you’re not. Call our Amarillo office at (806) 351-1177 to schedule a consultation to discuss what blepharoplasty can do for you.
