Upper eyelid surgery, also known as blepharoplasty, is a surgical procedure to enhance the upper eyelids. During this procedure, Dr. Vargason can remove excess sagging skin and fat deposits, leaving you with eyes that appear more alert, brighter, and refreshed.
Your Recovery After Surgery
After upper eyelid surgery in Boise, you should plan to take 1-2 weeks off from work. You can return to work after one week but may still be bruised for another week. For the first few days after surgery, you should rest and use ice packs to reduce swelling. After day three, you can return to light activities.
Dr. Vargason will provide you with antibiotic ointment and will have you return to the office after a week to have your stitches removed and check in on your healing process. Throughout your recovery, Dr. Vargason will continue to check in with you and will be available to answer any questions you may have.
