I had upperlid surgery on a Wed and was back to work for a business meeting on Monday. The surgery had very minimal risk since it was not done under general anesthesia. Lidocaine was administered to the upper eyelids & the procedure was about 1/2 hr per lid.
After leaving the doctor's office I went out for lunch wearing sunglasses. A 1/2 of percocet was all that had to take for incision pain. With this surgery the Doctor & I were able to talk with each other throughout the surgery. I did have very slight bruising that covered over with make up.
