Most people return to normal activities after seven to 10 days following blepharoplasty. By two weeks after eyelid surgery, the majority of the bruising and swelling will resolve
Normal swelling after eyelid surgery usually takes 6-8 weeks to completely resolve. You'll see more final results 12 weeks after surgery.
The rule of thumb is to ice for 20 minutes, and then take a ten minute break. Keep using ice packs, masks, or cold compresses for as many days as your surgeon prescribes.
