Once your surgery is completed, you must follow all the instructions given to you in order to heal properly and have good outcomes. Use this as a checklist of progress as you heal. Included are normal post-surgical experiences and key health considerations that may be a cause of concern.
Typical symptoms of eyelid surgery and signs to watch for include:
Bruising and swelling in the eyelid region is a normal experience as the skin, tissues and sensory nerves heal. Pain medication will help you cope with any discomfort. Consistent sharp pain should be reported to our office immediately.
Asymmetry, the eyes look different, or heal differently. The eyes may look or feel quite different from one another in the days following surgery. This is normal; no two eyes in nature or following surgery are perfectly symmetrical.
