I had an eyelid lift about two and a half months ago. My lower eyelid on my right eye is still very numb. Will this clear up and when?
Numbness after blepharoplasty or any surgical procedure is an expected and common occurrence. Numbness can vary by individual and from the extent of your eyelid lift procedure. Numbness occurs because the very small sensory nerves to the skin are often disrupted with any surgical procedure. These nerves should regrow and sensation should to return to normal. Typically numbness after cosmetic surgery usually resolves by 3 months, but varies by individual. Rest assured that your symptoms are normal and should improve soon.
