Makeup after Asian eyelid surgery
I usually have patients wear makeup a day after all the sutures are removed, as long as care is taken not to shear the incision line.
Typically it is about a week after the last stitches are removed.
The exact time frame depends very much on what type of Asian eyelid surgery you need. Commonly, I perform an anchor blepharoplasty and leave vicryl sutures as crease formation sutures in three locations. Under these circumstances, I ask my patients not to wear make up for 3 to 4 weeks. As doctors do vary in their approach, it is most appropriate to pose this questions to your actual surgeon.
