Many of my Houston rhinoplasty patients are younger and have spent considerable time and money on eyelash extensions. During rhinoplasty surgery, general anesthesia is usually required. Therefore, the eyelids need to be taped shut so that the cornea does not dry out. I have found a way to preserve my patients’ eyelashes while still taping their eyelids shut. Since recovery after rhinoplasty surgery is usually 8-10 days, there is no reason you should not still have your eyelid extensions after this procedure.
