How long after my eyelid surgery until I look normal?
You will likely feel well a few days after your eyelid surgery, however, you may not look “normal” for a week or two following your eyelid surgery. Selling and discoloration of the eyelids and area around the eyes is not uncommon and it will take a bit of time for this to resolve. Depending upon the amount of work which you needed performed on your lower eyelids, the swelling and discoloration can last at least two weeks. The good news is that you can wear make up about 6 days following eyelid surgery to help camouflage the recovery.
