There are definitely steps that
help with the recovery process from a blepharoplasty. Eating less salt,
cold/cool compresses on the eyes, and sleeping slightly elevated with a couple
pillows behind you all help decrease inflammation. It is important to be
patient though; it takes about two to three months for all eyelid swelling to
This can happen and every person heals differently.Limiting salt,warm compresses , haead up and massage and this should clear shortly..
I'm 5 weeks post upper blepharoplasty, and I still have swelling. Would less salt help?
Second question you have posted about swelling after blepharoplasty. BUT with posted photos s we the expert responders could offer more detailed advise. Of course decreasing salt intake could help, more info as to your medical history and photos are the best way to receive advise.
Thank you for the question. There is probably no reason to be concerned. It is normal to be swollen 5 weeks after blepharoplasty. Less salt, sleeping with your head elevated and sometimes oral steroids are beneficial. You should follow up with your surgeon for in office evaluation. Give it a few more months before judging it. Good luck.
