Most people rely on eyesight for navigation, entertainment, and so many of life’s daily tasks. What happens, then, if you want or need to undergo eyelid surgery and your eyesight must be impacted for days or weeks afterward? Blepharoplasty recovery can be difficult for this reason. Most blepharoplasties, or eyelid lifts, are outpatient procedures. By staying at Pearl Recovery Retreat & Wellness or hiring one of our private duty nurses to take care of you in your own home, you can make your blepharoplasty surgery recovery period a much more relaxing and restorative experience.
What Does Blepharoplasty Recovery Entail?
The recovery process you’ll experience after your eyelid lift or surgery depends on the kind of procedure you undergo and the healing capacity of your body. During the first week of blepharoplasty recovery, you can expect discomfort in the eyes, including:
- Tearing up
- Sensitivity to light
- Temporary blurred vision
Some symptoms, such as dryness, can be alleviated through measures such as prescribed eye creams, but others will only go away with time. To adapt to your modified capabilities, you may need to take blepharoplasty recovery measures during the first week or two, including:
- Refraining from strenuous activity.
- Avoiding laptops, TVs, and other screens.
- Wearing sunglasses during sun exposure.
- Taking frequent naps to relieve tired eyes.
Of course, your doctor may recommend many more measures than these for a successful blepharoplasty recovery.
