How long to keep eyes closed after eyelid surgery?

For a typical cosmetic eyelid surgery, the eyes do not need to be kept closed after surgery and they can be opened immediately.  I would recommend checking with your particular surgeon to see if there is some reason that your eyes need to remain closed.
