When you feel like your eyelids have developed loose skin and become puffy, the solution is blepharoplasty, a type of rejuvenating eyelid plastic surgery. Once a patient has undergone this procedure, blepharoplasty recovery will be necessary.
The medical stitches used to close your blepharoplasty incisions will typically need to be removed. This will take place around three to five days into your blepharoplasty recovery, giving the incisions enough time to experience some healing. When absorbable stitches have been used, removal will not be necessary.
