Activity after Eyelid Surgery?

Assuming you have healed completely,  roller coaster writing will not affect the results of eyelid surgery.  Always best to check with your plastic surgeon prior to resuming strenuous activity.

Best wishes.

Riding roller coasters after Asian double eyelid surgery

You can ride a roller coaster after double eyelid surgery. But, I would speak to your doctor to be sure.  Usually after a month, most of the swelling is gone and such activities such as roller coasters or airplanes shouldn’t affect your results.

Activity after Asian Eyelid Surgery

Afternoon Ivan,


No, this activity should not affect your surgery so long as it is been at least 2 to 3 weeks after your procedure. Things you should avoid are swimming goggles, snowboarding goggles, and any other garment or activity that will pull on your upper eyelids.  I tell most of my Asian eyelid surgery patients they can return to normal activity within about two weeks. This of course depends on the exact procedure performed and their preoperative issues.


It would be best that you discuss this with your surgeon first.

I would wait AT LEAST TWO WEEKS following your surgery. But you should discuss this with your surgeon and ultimately follow his/her instructions. Only he/she knows exactly what kind of surgery was performed and what the risk would be.

Great question for your surgeon.

Generally, I remove all restrictions for my patients by week 3 after surgery.  You surgeon, who continues to be directly responsible for your care, may feel differently.  Call his or her office and ask them.  They will get you an answer.

Riding roller coasters

  Once you have healed, of course you can ride again.  I  wouldn't suggest it for at least several weeks after your surgery.
