How long does it take to recover from blepharoplasty?
Nowadays, blepharoplasty has become one of the most common cosmetic surgeries among men and women and has many supporters. But one of the questions that arise for the applicants of this surgery is how long is the recovery period of eye lied surgery? And how long after this surgery they can reach their daily tasks.
It takes at least nine months for the wounds to heal completely and the appearance of the scar will change over time. Scars usually turn red in the first trimester, especially when the healing process is at its peak.
During this time, the scars will thicken slightly and sometimes become slightly uneven. After this period, the scars disappear and at the end, a very fine line disappears from them that is difficult to recognize.
Blepharoplasty recovery period?
In very rare cases, some people have abnormal reactions to the scar, and in these cases more treatment will be needed after the blepharoplasty.
If the absorbable sutures are worked deep into the skin, it usually takes three months for them to be absorbed by the body, at which point they will increase the redness of the skin.
Some patients develop pus-filled pimples in this area due to the efforts of inflammatory cells to absorb the sutures. These pimples will usually go away completely.
Taking care of the scars and massaging them three to four times a day with odorless moisturizing creams will help reduce the thickness of the scars and keep the skin soft.
Massage of the thin skin of the upper eyelid is usually not necessary, but massaging the outer corners of the two eyes where the skin is thicker can be beneficial for the skin, especially in the case of this type of surgery, which requires deep suturing.
It is also recommended to protect the scars from sunlight because sunlight causes the scars to turn red and the scars are also sensitive to sun damage.
