Hi!! I have an eyelid issue – eye puffiness and some of my well wishers have suggested me to go for this eyelid surgery so that it can fix my eye puffiness issue. Do you have any idea how long does it take to recovery from such issue? Any suggestions, please help me.

Generally, recovery from eyelid surgery takes several weeks. Stitches will be removed within two days of a week. It is important to make sure that the eyes receive plenty of rest. The redness and swelling that occur after this surgery will fade with time. Patients will be able to get back to the previous schedule after 10 to 15 days of surgery.
