If you’re considering an eye lift, otherwise known as a blepharoplasty, it’s important to have an understanding of the blepharoplasty recovery process. Here are a few things to keep in mind.
Because the eyelids are quite thin, the incision lines will be very vulnerable to sun exposure. During your blepharoplasty recovery, make sure to avoid direct sunlight and to keep your eyes protected with sunglasses whenever you venture outside. This precaution is obviously temporary but important nonetheless. Your doctor will advise you as to when you can expose your eyelids to sunlight again as normal.
