Will I feel pain after eyelid reconstructive surgery?

Your doctor will tell you what you should know about eyelid reconstructive surgery in order to be fully prepared for the intervention.

After eyelid reconstruction is completed, it’s normal to experience some changes and difficulties at first. We will be there for you and help you manage your post-operative symptoms.

You might experience some pain or discomfort after the intervention, but you will be given the right medication to keep it under control.

The pain should subside within a few days. 2 to 4 weeks following the intervention, all its side-effects will be forgotten and you will feel as if you’ve never had a surgery.
