How Long After Getting an Eyelift Will I See the Results? Beverly Hills, CA

Before you plan surgery for droopy eyelids, or blepharoplasty, you want to the peace of mind that you’ll see the type of results that you’re looking for.

Modern eyelift procedures in Beverly Hills are conservative and low-risk. So recovery time is minimal, letting you get back out there to show off your new look with little down time.

Blepharoplasty Recovery Time

An eyelift is a procedure in which our experienced eye surgeon removes excess fat and skin from the eyelids. This tightens the skin and restores the look of elasticity. People opt for this treatment to combat the effects of aging or a hereditary “saggy-eyed” look.

But altering the eye this way does take a small toll on your skin, so you will need time to heal.

Plan to stay home for about a week after your surgery to allow for full recovery. It’s normal to have mild swelling and even some bruising during this time. Your recovery will be fast and successful if you follow a few tips:

  • Get lots of rest and avoid strenuous activity
  • Plan a staycation – stock your home ahead of time with necessary items if you don’t have anyone living with you who can help with grocery runs
  • Apply a cold compress to the surgical site and keep your head elevated
  • Use eye drops and prescriptions as directed

You may experience some discomfort during the day, but nothing worse than the sensation of a sunburn.

When Will Your Eye Look Normal?

Although everyone heals a little differently, you should easily be back to your normal self (but better!) within weeks. Most people take a week off of work and get back to normal activity after two weeks.

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!
