You will not be able to drive immediately after a blepharoplasty this is due the after effects of the anaesthetic that may still be in your system and your vision may be temporarily impaired immediately after surgery. We would recommend that you avoid driving for a week or at least until you are off pain medication and feel comfortable to do so. We would advise against driving for long distances in the initial stages of healing too. If in doubt – do check with your surgeon.
Upper and Lower Blepharoplasty After Procedure
Light to moderate exercise may be resumed at 2-3 weeks but it may take at least 3-4 weeks before you can get back to higher impact activities. Swimming / diving should be avoided during the first 3-6 weeks after surgery.
You will be able to wear glasses as normal after eyelid or eyebag surgery. We advise waiting 2-3 weeks before wearing contact lenses again.
We recommend waiting at least 10 days before applying any type of eye make-up including eyeshadow, fake lashes, mascara and eyeliner.
