There is almost no recovery after Brow-lift, as any bruising can be camouflaged immediately, since it is usually in the cheeks and the incisions are in the hair. I generally let everyone wash their hair the next day. Usually by 3 days, when I remove the staples in the hair, I have trouble finding them. You will, however, still be able to feel the fixation for many months, but these are invisible. Blepharoplasty varies a little, depending on whether you have just the upper lids or both upper and lower lids done. I generally remove the sutures at 3-4 days and then let you use camouflage make-up (which we supply) 6 hours later. You will still have swelling for several weeks, but this usually does not slow down return to activities. Occasionally, swelling of the sclera, the white of the eyeball, will require use of sunglasses for a week or so to totally disguise the surgery. Even this should not really delay return to social engagements, however. I had scleral edema (chemosis) after my Blepharoplasty and Brow-lift, but was back seeing patients with no one the wiser by 5 days.
