1. Prepare ahead of time for your recovery at home
You’re going to spend some time resting and relaxing, during the first few days after your eyelid surgery. For that reason, we recommend preparing for your recovery before you even undergo surgery.
Do some meal prep, arrange for friends and family to visit you, and invest in some comfy loungewear – you’re going to spend about 5-7 days at home, out of the public eye.
2. Get a clear understanding of your post-op recovery plan.
If you have any questions about your recovery plan, don’t wait until after the surgery to get the answers you need. Quiz your plastic surgeon as much as possible. That way, you’ll feel a lot more confident and prepared for your eyelid lift recovery.
Don’t rush to return to work before you’re ready. If you still need time off to recover from your eyelid lift, take that time. Rushing to get back to your normal routine before you’re ready can put your recovery at risk!
4. Wear sun protection.
When going outside after your eyelid lift, be sure to wear sunglasses that offer 100% UV protection. Even after you’ve recovered, be religious about applying sunscreen to your eye region. This helps minimize the chances of developing noticeable scars.
5. Exercise when your surgeon gives you approval.
Ask your surgeon for the green light before you start engaging in strenuous exercise activities. Again, this goes back to the point of not rushing to do things before you’re ready – except this time, you want your plastic surgeon to give their sign-off!
I have used Dr. Pittman for numerous surgeries and have highly recommended him to all of my friends and family members (which have also already been in to have surgery). My most recent surgery was my eyelid surgery. They were very tired looking and puffy. Dr. Pittman made me look years younger and I feel great!! Each day when I wake up and look in the mirror I just LOVE my results! Dr. Pittman and his staff are phenomenal. They have lots of before and after pictures and even offered to let me speak with their other patients who have had the same surgery. I am so happy with all of my surgeries I am signed up for more in the fall!
If you are looking to have plastic surgery, I would definitely recommend contacting his office.
