Several Months Required for final eyelid result

It is true that it would be very hard to tell your final result just 5 weeks following eyelid surgery and that 3-6 months or more is required to see your final result

Uhappy with eyelid operation

  • excess skin after a blepharoplasty is common.
  • It may go away or need a tiny touch up - between 3 - 6 months from surgery.
  • To assess the deeper crease, look at the before and after photos with your surgeon.
  • Often, we notice differences after surgery that have always been there.
  • If not, there are procedures that can be done to improve this.
