Do I need downtime after the blepharoplasty treatment?

This really depends on your tolerance to your appearance. All the surgery is in the middle of the face and therefore rather obvious. There will be some small dressings for about a week and a little bruising of the cheeks below the eyelids. We would advise you to rest so that any swelling or bruising settles quicker, but we do have patients who disregard this, without long-term issues and go back to full work or off on holiday the following day. We do however, like to see the patients to remove stitches a few days later. We will advise on make-up or in the form of cosmetic camouflage which does allow you to get out and about with confidence.
