FAQ on Double Eyelid Surgery
What happens after the double eyelid surgery?
Patients can undergo eyelid surgery on an outpatient basis or with an overnight stay in a hospital. The surgeon will decide on the appropriate option for a patient’s particular situation. A hospital stay may or may not be needed following eyelid surgery. The best environment for recovery will be determined by the preferences of both the patient and his doctor.
As far as the process of recovery itself, initially, patients can expect redness and swelling around the incision areas. The eyes may tear excessively. Any dryness that occurs in the eye area can be alleviated by ointment that the surgeon can provide. However, patients may experience a temporary blurring of vision as a result of using the ointment. In general, temporary blurred vision is one of the common side effects of eyelid surgery. Recovery may also include temporary sensitivity to light.
