What type of precautions will I need to take after my surgery?

Question:

I am scheduled for an upper and lower bleph in 2 weeks. What type of precautions will I need to take after my surgery? Will I be able to wash my face / shower as I normally do?

Answer:

You should check with your surgeon concerning their particular postoperative instructions to ensure that you are doing exactly as they say. I usually ask patients to refrain from strenuous activity for 2 to 3 weeks after eyelid surgery. Patients can wash their face lightly with a washcloth over areas away from the surgical sites the day after surgery, but need to wait about a week until sutures are removed to wash the entire face.
