Recovery after Blepharoplasty

What is Blepharoplasty?

Blepharoplasty also more commonly known as eyelid surgery is a cosmetic surgery procedure involved in improving the appearance of the upper and lower eyelids. Mostly popular among individuals who have hooded or loose skin on their eyelids, Blepharoplasty also helps individuals to achieve a more youthful and refreshed look by removing the fat deposit under the eyes that creates a baggy appearance.

The recovery after Blepharoplasty is a vital part of the procedure as proper care will help promote faster healing and also promote the best results. Swelling and bruising for the first few days following your surgery is inevitable, and as a matter of fact these common side effects associated with most cosmetic surgery procedures. Fortunately there are ways it can be significantly reduced for a rapid recovery. Our plastic surgeons recommend gel eye masks from Recova post surgery as one of the must-haves on your checklist to help with your recovery after Blepharoplasty.

Benefits of wearing a gel eye mask after Blepharoplasty

Gel eye mask compresses are certainly known to promote maximum comfort during the recovery period by significantly reducing the swelling and inflammation of the eyes. The gel eye masks include pockets for ice packs to be inserted, which will trigger effective and speedy healing. Plastic surgeons recommend their clients to purchase these gel eye masks before their initial surgery as they are essentially required to be used for a few days right after the surgery. The cold compresses are also known to ease the strain on your eyes and will help alleviate headaches, if experienced due to the swelling of the eyes.
