Recovering from Eyelid Surgery (Blepharoplasty) Beverly Hills, CA
Eye Treatments Beverly Hills CA

The time spent recovering from eyelid surgery in Beverly Hills is just as important as the procedure itself. Here’s some of what you can expect after having blepharoplasty, and certain tips to help you along through your recovery.

Initially After Eyelid Surgery

Immediately after your procedure you may experience some swelling, bruising, irritation, dry eyes, or discomfort. To help improve your comfort, you can take an over-the-counter pain reliever, use a cold compress, and place an ointment over the area. Swelling and bruising can also be minimized laying on your back and elevating your head as much as possible. By the two-week mark, the majority of the bruising and swelling will have subsided.

In the first week, your eye will likely feel tired. Resting them will help tremendously, so napping is recommended.

Activities that can dry your eyes or strain them should be avoided. This includes reading, watching television, wearing contacts, or using a computer.

When outside, wear dark sunglasses to protect your eyes from being irritated by the wind and sun.

Within just 10 days, most people are back to work and resuming normal activities. Our Beverly Hills eye surgeon will let you know when you’re free to do as you wish. For the first three to four weeks after the surgery, you may be restricted to do any activities that increase blood flow to the eyes including bending, lifting, exercising, participating in sports, etc.

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!
