The bruising lasted a good three weeks-but that’s me. Everyone is different. I planned the procedure during the holidays so I would have time to heal before I had to show my face at work. After three weeks, make-up covered the little residual bruising that was left. The worst part of the entire process was the IV (I hate needles) and the dry/itchy eyes, which resolved in 3-5 days.
I'm thrilled with the outcome...only wish I found my surgeon sooner!
