What can I expect the recovery to be like after my blepharoplasty
Most patients need to plan to limit their activity and be able to keep their head elevated for the first 48 hours or so. Typically there will be swelling which would impair vision to the extent that fine work or operating machinery and driving is not allowed. Often there is some mild bruising as well. Usually there is very little pain. Although you will be up and mobile after 48 hours heavy lifting or straining is prohibited for ten days.
