Ectropion Repair Recovery and Results
After ectropion surgery, it is normal for patients to experience some mild swelling, discomfort, and bruising around the eye. These symptoms should resolve on their own within a few days and can be managed with medication and aftercare. Additionally, patients may need to use artificial tears or ointments to keep their eyes lubricated during recovery. Dr. Sohrab will provide you with specific instructions on how to care for your eyes following ectropion surgery.
Most patients will see an immediate improvement in their ectropion following surgery. The procedure creates immediate changes in the eyelid structures. However, your final results may not be visible for several weeks as your incisions heal and any swelling subsides. Any symptoms caused by the eyelid should also subside over time.
