Blepharoplasty Surgery Procedure

Every cosmetic surgery procedure requires a period of extra caution while healing and a few temporary restrictions to ensure optimal results. At Solomon Facial Plastic, we believe preparing patients to fully understand the procedure and recovery sets them up for success and a stress-free experience. Blepharoplasty in Toronto, also called eyelid surgery, is one of the most common and popular choices to rejuvenate a youthful appearance. Here, we’ll explain what you can expect after your eyelid procedure and how to have a smooth recovery.

Toronto blepharoplasty- what happens after?

This procedure is designed to remove excess skin in the eyelid area. The incisions for eyelid surgery can be completely hidden in natural creases. Smoothing this thin, delicate tissue and removing excess fat deposits helps restore a rested and youthful appearance. The effect is extremely impactful for anti-ageing. Men and women ranging from 40-70 love this eye rejuvenator.

Most patients go home the same day after their blepharoplasty in Toronto. The procedure itself could take between 1-2 hours and sometimes is combined with other cosmetic treatments.

Patients can expect to see swelling appear in the eye and cheek area over the first two days after surgery and this typically peaks by day 3-5, before decreasing again. Bruising is also common because this is a very delicate and vascular region, but rest-assured the visible changes usually resolve by 10-14 days. We recommend you take a couple of weeks off work and regularly scheduled activities to recover in privacy.

It’s normal for the eyes to tear excessively for a few days after the procedure because the eyes form lubrication in response to irritation. This can be annoying but is not usually described as painful.

You’ll be provided with medication and a soothing ointment or drops to help ease discomfort. Temporarily blurred vision and sensitivity to light are also expected due to the effects of swelling and medicated cream. You’ll need to avoid driving until you’ve recovered, so plan ahead by completing errands before surgery.

Let your eyes rest

Normally, recovery from cosmetic surgery at home can involve plenty of TV bingeing, movies and good books, but unfortunately, activities which require eye strain aren’t helpful after the procedure. You’ll be most comfortable wearing dark shades when outdoors and taking breaks with closed eyes frequently when indoors. Listening to music, visiting with friends, catching up on podcasts and talking on the phone will help you keep occupied while resting the eye-area.

You’ll also be advised by your facial plastic surgeon to refrain from wearing contacts or eye makeup during the first 10-14 days.

Take a break from the gym

Active people need to slow down a little when recovering from surgery and blepharoplasty is no exception. Because increased blood pressure can worsen swelling or bleeding, we’ll advise you to avoid aerobic exercise, bending over and heavy lifting for a few weeks. Your surgeon will assess your recovery progress and give you the all-clear when it’s safe to get back in action again.

Blepharoplasty results can take years off a person’s apparent age and do wonders for confidence. Recovery requires plenty of patience and realistic expectations. However, the procedure has a very high satisfaction rate with minimal scarring and long-lasting benefits.
