I have some bags under my eyes and I am interested in having them removed.

Question:

I have some bags under my eyes and I am interested in having them removed. What is the recovery time for lower lid blepharoplasty? Are there many complications with this procedure?

Answer:

The recovery time for a lower lid blepharoplasty is between three-eight days. The reason that the recovery period is somewhat variable depends on what is accomplished to achieve the desired result. Some patients need excess fatty tissue removed; however, many patients require only a small amount of skin removal, suspension or even a lipo-transfer to achieve a natural result. In order to determine the recommended approach, the patient first needs to be seen in consultation and recommendations would be made accordingly. The most common complication of blepharoplasty is prolonged swelling which typically lasts for a few weeks in the worst case scenario, however, all the details of this and the particular concerns for each individual are discussed at the consultation.
