A long- acting local anesthetic is injected at the beginning of the procedure, so most people wake up very comfortable and need pain medicine only for the first night.
15 Min Procedure
Each eyelid takes only about 15 minutes. You are lightly asleep for this procedure, although, it is possible to do upper eyelids under local anesthesia only.
Using the laser to make the incisions is a tremendous breakthrough for eye lifting. The swelling and bruising is much less and the recovery is much faster. Most patients report almost no discomfort and are able to stop any pain medication by the next day.
Photo and Party Ready!
Most people are out and about one week after the procedure. Any residual bruising can be covered with makeup.
