I want to get upper eyelid fat removed and hood opened and chin,neck lift?? What is down time on these 2 procedures..thanx

Neck and Eyes Downtime
Initial recovery for a necklift and eyelid lift is usually about one to 2 weeks. You can expect some bruising and swelling of the eyes and neck that could last up to 2 weeks. Typically there is minimal pain associated with face and eyelid lifts. There are OTC supplements that can help minimize swelling and bruising (Arnica, Bromlain). Before starting any of these supplements I would discuss the options with your surgeon.
