Contraindictions to Getting Eyelid Surgery or Brow Lift After Wisdom Tooth Removal?

Are there any contraindictions to getting plastic surgery for example double eyelid surgery and brow lifts? If one gets a wisdom tooth removed using local anesthesia and sedation does that mean one can't get double eyelid surgery or a brow lift soon after? Thank you !

There is no right or wrong answer here. The wisdom tooth surgery should have no bearing on the upper eyelid or brow surgery. I would wait till you recovered about a week after your dental surgery before scheduling your eyelid or brow surgery.

I personally would advise waiting about 6 weeks.


You particular eyelid surgeon may have different ideas.  Please recognize that we generally don't do clinical research to answer questions like this.  Instead we use our clinical judgement.  So there is room for more than one opinion.
