How to Deal with Bruising After Eyelid Surgery Beverly Hills, CA
Eyelid Surgery Beverly Hills CA

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.

Words cannot express how thankful and appreciative I am to have found you. I am deeply grateful for you, for your generosity and caring nature as pertaining to my medical condition. As you know, I was apprehensive about having further surgery, but you are and have been reassuring and confident in the type of procedure you would perform in order to fix my eyelid from the beginning. The fact that you are not pushy and gave me the time and space to make the decision on my own allowed me to prepare myself mentally and emotionally, that really made a difference. Besides from that, your continuous generosity made me confident that you were the right doctor for the task at hand. You will never know how appreciative I am of that. I would also like to let you know how pleased I am with the results of the surgery. I have not felt this comfortable in years. My parents are also very grateful since this was my 14th surgery. You have a true gift. Thank you again for your patience, time, concern, and overall care. I pray that God continues to give you strength to help people who truly need life-changing medical procedures.

Dr. Parsa is an amazing doctor. Warm and very caring. I had my eyes done a couple years ago and I couldn't be happier. Dr. Parsa likes to take the conservative approach which I greatly appreciate in a doctor when it comes to cosmetic surgery. I also go to Dr. Parsa for Botox and he always knows just the right amount. The staff in Dr. Parsa's office are all terrific!
