Eyelid surgery is technically known as blepharoplasty. This plastic surgery procedure can be performed on the upper eyelids, the lower eyelids, or both, to refresh and rejuvenate the area around the eyes. It may be done to improve function as well as appearance when droopy upper eyelids interfere with vision.

Plan to take some time off and limit your activities for several days after blepharoplasty. You may have a stitch in each upper eyelid for approximately one week. Expect some swelling and bruising in the eyelids. You may experience dry eyes, mild discomfort, and irritation, which can be controlled with medication or ointment. Sleep with your head elevated for several days to minimize swelling. Your eyes will look more youthful and refreshed when the swelling subsides in a week or two after surgery.
