What should I expect from an eyelid repair procedure?

Your doctor will be able to tell you what results you should expect after examining you. Moreover, he or she will also provide you with all the necessary aftercare guidelines following this surgery.

After this procedure, you will need some days to recover. Patients usually turn to work within 5-7 days. You will need to use ice packs for the swelling and to enhance recovery. Wash the sutures according to your doctor’s indications; sometimes baby soap is recommended. You will need eye drops because your eyes will get dry after the surgery.

When you go outside, you will need to use sunglasses to protect your eyes.
