Stitches are removed in about one week and you can return to work in five to seven days. Strenuous activities can be resumed in about three weeks. Scarring is usually minimal after three weeks and almost undetectable in six months.
In addition to eyelid surgery, fine lines and light wrinkles can be corrected from around your eyes with the CO2 laser facelift procedure. This procedure can be performed as an outpatient with a local or general anesthesia and takes about one to two hours.
