With all the intricate work that is done during eyelid surgery in Beverly Hills, some minor bruising is a common side effect.
How Long Will the Bruising Last?
Initially, red bruising can appear right after your procedure. After about three or four days the bruises will turn purple and then blue. At the five to ten-day mark the bruising will begin to heal, fading in color, and turning green to yellow until completely gone. It can take up to four weeks for all discoloration to be gone. The timeline will depend on the severity of the bruises and your body’s ability to heal.
How to Reduce Bruising
Bruising is going to happen regardless, but there are certain ways to keep it minimal, some of which include:
- Apply a cold compress to the area
- Sleep on your back with your head elevated
- Avoid touching your eyes
- No strenuous activity such as exercising
- Avoid the sun and exposure to the wind
Concealing Your Bruises
It’s best to stay indoors the first week, and avoid the sun and wind exposure, however, if you must go out, we suggest wearing some dark sunglasses.
Once the surgeon sees that the incisions have healed and there’s no risk of infection, we’ll give you the okay to wear concealer and other make-up. Typically, this will be about ten days after the procedure.
