Probably the biggest tip you'll receive about post-operative cosmetic eyelid surgery is to be patient. It takes at least eight full weeks to see complete results. The tendency is to obsessively look in the mirror and see how things are progressing, but it's best to curb yourself of that urge. First of all, your face will go through many changes as it heals. Most often, it's going to look worse before it gets better. Also, your vision may be compromised temporarily after cosmetic eyelid surgery, which can be scary. It's best to sit tight, follow doctor's orders for recovery, and trust s/he has your best interests in mind. If you have complications following your surgery, or you're concerned about anything, you should always consult your doctor.
