    Well, generally speaking, it will take about one week for your swollen eyes to recover. And also, you should know that it is normal to have swollen eyes after you have got blepharoplasty. And you should know that after you have blepharoplasty, your eyes will be more fragile than the normal ones. So your eyes will be easily infected by irritants, and when they have been infected by irritants, it can lead to swollen eyes. For your situation, you can try some home remedies to treat it. For example, you can try some strawberry jam. Of course, cool used tea bags can be helpful too. By the way, the cucumber slices with coolness can reduce circulation, and it can be effective too. anyway, just have a try.


    As far as i know, it will take a long time for all swelling to resolve. Several weeks, about four or five weeks after a surgery is actually considered to be relatively soon.But for some individuals the swelling can persist for months and it usually will take a year for the tissues settle back to normal. That may help.

    There are many side effects after the blepharoplasty, including the swollen eyes. Usually the swollen eyes may last for about one week if you treat the eyes well. You should not smoke or drink which will stimulate your eyes. In addition, you could also have the good rest for the eyes. You could use the warm compress to release the eyes.
