Upper eyelid blepharoplasty is done under local anesthetic while lower eyelid surgery needs general anesthesia.
Typical duration is 1 hour. The surgery is performed on an outpatient basis.
Expect swelling with some bruising around the eyes that typically subsides one week after surgery. Sutures are removed after 5 – 7 days and you will be able to return to work by that time.
