Dr. Karolak prides himself on primarily using local anesthesia throughout your procedure. You won’t experience the groggy ‘comedown’ effects in the days following your surgery that are typically associated with general anesthesia.
In most cases, recovery is fairly straightforward. You’ll need to keep your head elevated and ice the treatment area as directed for up to 1 week. Most patients feel comfortable returning to their normal routines 1-2 weeks post-blepharoplasty.
