Few surgeons take on revision blepharoplasty surgery as it is often more complex than first-time surgery. In revision blepharoplasty surgery, scarring reduced blood supply, and distorted anatomy make the procedure more challenging and unpredictable.
What Is the Recovery Time After Revision Blepharoplasty?
The recovery time will vary depending on the nature of the procedure performed. In the first few days after the procedure, most patients can expect some swelling, discomfort, bruising, and sensitivity. Ice packs and over-the-counter pain medication can be used to ease these. You will be able to return home after your procedure but should expect to stay there for a few weeks to recover. During this time, you will need to avoid strenuous activities and exercise for at least a week. Dr. Levin will provide you with full post-operative instructions, including what to expect and things that should be avoided.
