Bruising and swelling after lower bleph last about 2 weeks

Hi Nixiepixi50. Because eyelid skin is so thin, bruising and swelling are apparent immediately. Approximately 2 weeks later, you should be well on your way to looking "normal". Women can wear makeup to cover residual bruising if necessary-avoiding blood thinning medications, excessive activity, using ice packs/cold compresses, elevating the head of your bed, etc after surgery are good ways to help reduce the bruising and swelling for both men and women. Biologically speaking, healing is not complete at 2 weeks. Be sure to have a consultation with an ABPS certified Plastic Surgeon, and ask about other modalities expedite recovery (i.e. supplements, ultrasound, hyperbaric oxygen therapy). Good luck!
