We are all busy and want to be able to get back to our social lives and work. Eyelid surgery can be a pretty straightforward procedure and there are certain things than be done to minimize recovery after blepharoplasty. Prevention is most important when considering cosmetic surgery. Make sure to stop blood thinning medications such as aspirin and ibuprofen at least 10 days prior to surgery. Arnica tablets may help with bruising and swelling. Keeping your head of bed elevated and applying ice during the first 48 hours is also essential. Lower eyelid surgery for lower eyelid bags is a little longer recovery than upper eyelid surgery.
