Eyelid Surgery Recovery and Postoperative FAQs

Can I Wear Makeup After Eyelid Surgery?

Most surgeons advise that you do not wear any eye makeup until your eyelids have fully healed following your eyelid surgery. Generally, this will be around six weeks. Your surgeon will give you specific advice on when you can resume wearing makeup.

Do I Need to Wear Anything Over My Eyes After Eyelid Surgery?

We recommend that you wear dark glasses for the first week following your eyelid procedure. This will help protect your eyes from the sun and wind and also prevent you from touching your eyes. Dark glasses are also a good way to keep your procedure discreet if you do not wish to discuss it. They will also hide the bruising and swelling of your eyelids.
