How to Care for Yourself After Blepharoplasty

Recovery after blepharoplasty, also known as eyelid surgery, is fairly straightforward. Always be sure to follow the post-op instructions of your Santa Barbara plastic surgeon. You can schedule a blepharoplasty Santa Barbara consultation today. Here are some tips for a smoother recovery:

– Be sure to not wear contact lenses for at least two weeks following your surgery.
– Make sure to get plenty of rest during the first few days after surgery. This includes heavy lifting or exercise.
– Be sure to avoid sneezing and coughing as well as vomiting as much as possible. This will avoid raising blood pressure and/or any bleeding from surgical locations.
– While resting and sleeping, keep your head raised on two or three pillows as directed by your plastic surgeon for 2 weeks following your procedure to help reduce swelling.
