What’s the typical post-op period like after eyelid surgery? I can take only 2 weeks’ vacation from work, no more, and I would like to know if this is sufficient time. What can I expect to look like going back to work after that 2 week period?
If you are having all of your eyelids operated on, although physically you will feel well in less than a week, it could take two weeks before you are presentable at work. I am not so concerned with the appearance of your eyes after upper eyelid surgery, but, depending upon the amount of work that needs to be performed on your lower eyelids for rejuvenation, the swelling and bruising can be fairly marked and you will appreciate the two weeks you have taken. Renu Med Spa carries a variety of post procedure products that will really camouflage the bruising.
