Eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty)

Blepharoplasty - eyelid surgery - is a cosmetic operation that tightens the skin and muscles surrounding your eyes, giving you back your doe-like, youthful gaze.

Can one attend an event 3 weeks after an upper eyelift?

Most people can return to wok within 1 week following an upper eyelift. Barring any complication, which is very uncommon after eyelid surgery, you should be able to attend an event 3 weeks postop even if you need to use some cover-up, which is unlikely.

Usually the recuperation from upper eyelid surgery is 1-2 weeks and most patients can return to reasonable activity within that timeframe. this does not include vigorous activity or exercising however.

Yes and usually, you will look presentable.

Yes you certainly can, some patients can attend events in as little as 1-2 weeks.

While healing time varies from patient to patient, the vast majority of our patients can return to normal activities such as attending event within 3 weeks after an upper eyelift.
