What To Expect During Blepharoplasty Recovery

Blepharoplasty Recovery | After Blepharoplasty 

Blepharoplasty recovery will vary per patient. But for sure, the patient will need someone who will transport him or her home after blepharoplasty surgery is completed. Therefore it is wise to give the number of your trusted someone who will fetch you after the operation to your recovery nurse to be sure that you have a ride just in case you will not be able to call your driver.

After the entire process of blepharoplasty, the surgeon will apply ointment to the patient’s eyes to keep it lubricated. Also, bandages will only be used if needed.One thing that can be expected during blepharoplasty recovery is when the effect of anesthesia disappears; the patient may feel tightness particularly around the eyelids. Pain will also be unusual but in the event that severe pain strikes, it is best to call the attention of medical experts.

On the other hand, the doctor will always give the patient some prescription to control pain. However, it is best to have it ready before the surgery to avoid going out towards the pharmacyafter the surgery. Also, make sure to have enough supply of pain killers in order to manage any pain you might possibly experience.

It is also very important to read the cautions indicated in the medication for pain in order to be familiar of the things to avoid and the symptoms that will indicate allergic reaction while using the pain medication. In the event that the patient discovers some allergic reaction to pain killers, it is best to get a new prescription from the hired surgeon.
