Blepharoplasty and vigorous activity
At the 6 week mark, your eyelids are still healing. This skin is the most delicate in the body. You should always ask your doctor about what level of activity is advisable based on your healing process.
Activities after lower lid blepharoplasty
When in doubt, hold off on the activity. Some roller coasters are brutal on the intravenous pressure and the G-forces on the face. This could stir up some bleeding and extend the bruising. Why take a chance after you have come through the surgery and are looking so good?!
Yes, I would not recommend this.
Usually, we recommend no strenuous activity for 6 weeks. Rollercoaster will fall in this category. You may have increase inter-cranial pressure by being upside down and that can cause serious complication, such as severe bleeding.
Eye surgery and roller coaster
By three weeks you may be ok to go on a roller coaster. Best to ask your surgeon if it is OK. He should have the final decision.
Rollercoaster after Blepharoplasty
Thank you for posting your photo and sharing your case. In most cases, it is perfectly fine to return to normal activity three weeks after eyelid surgery. Make sure that your surgeon is aware of your concerns. Good luck!
Lower Lid Blepharoplasty Post Op Instructions
In general four weeks after a lower lid blepharoplasty, a patients physical activity is unrestricted however, common sense prevails. Some rides at attraction parks are associated with relatively high G forces which may cause discomfort or pain. You may want to avoid those rides. Please consult with your surgeon.
Roller coaster ride 3 weeks after lid surgery
It is absolutely safe to go on a rollercoaster at this point in time. I tell my patients to not worry about any restriction of activities by 3 weeks. Hope you have fun.
Rollercoasters and eyelid surgery
Going on a rollercoaster 3 weeks after eyelid surgery should not affect your results. Changes in air pressure are more extreme on airplanes than rollercoasters and I tell my patients that they can fly a week after surgery and have not had any problems. You should be just fine.
