Eyelid Surgery Recovery?

I cannot afford to miss more than 2 weeks of work when recovering from blepharoplasty procedure. Can a plastic surgeon describe the post-op recovery typical for patients? What is the standard eyelid surgery recovery time?

Dr. Azizzadeh’s Expert Answer

Although the recovery time varies, two weeks will typically suffice for my patients who undergo blepharoplasty. However, there are always exceptions, so make sure you speak to your plastic surgeon to find out how long it takes the majority of their patients to recover.
