Will Medications Affect Blepharoplasty Healing?

I am 26 and had upper blepharoplasty plus brow lift 3 months ago, i was recently diagnosed with nerve damage which can numb my face from time to time. I have been put on medication called Lyrica which can make me tired and drowsy. I was wondering will the nerve damge or this medication effect my healing in negative way? Thanks

Medications prescribed should not have any effect on healing. This should not have effect on the blepharoplasty healing time and hopefully will help with any nerve damage you have suffered.
