Antibiotics may be prescribed for several days following surgery. Sutures are generally removed within one week. Swelling and some bruising may occur, but they should subside within a few weeks. Dr. Vendetti will prescribe ice compresses and eye exercises to reduce swelling and regain mobility.
Women will be allowed to use eye cosmetics approximately two weeks after surgery. You can proceed with your normal daily activities within one to two weeks. A final evaluation may occur within several months from the initial surgical procedure.
“Scheduling was outstanding, I was scheduled within 24 hours for an emergency and handled like I was a long time patient and friend. … The call from Dr. Vendetti following surgery was a very nice and thoughtful gesture, it meant a lot. … Words cannot express my appreciation for the care that I received from Virginia Surgical Arts and staff.”
