Eyelid Surgery Recovery
After undergoing cosmetic eyelid surgery, there will be some degree of bruising and/or swelling that typically lasts 7-10 days, but can last longer. Incisions are carefully hidden so any scarring will fade over time. On the upper eyelids, the incision is placed on the natural eyelid crease. On the lower eyelids, the incision is hidden behind the eyelid or just under the eyelashes.
