After getting your newly treated double eyelids, it is important that you take care of them properly, especially in double eyelid suturing as your skin needs time to get used to the suture or threads holding the new creases together.

Here are some advice from the doctor:

  1. Refrain from taking a shower within the first 24 hours. This will allow the wound to seal up and reduce the risk of infection.
  2. Avoid contact lenses and putting on makeup on the upper eyelid for 2 weeks after the procedure.
  3. Heavy exercises such as weightlifting is not recommended for several weeks after the procedure, as elevating your blood pressure can disturb the healing process.
  4. No rubbing and no pressing on your eyelids, especially on the treatment area.
