How long is an eyelid surgery procedure?
Question: My eyelid surgery is a week away. I need to tell my husband what time to pick me up for the hospital. About how long is a typical procedure? Answer: Surgery is more than just time involved in the surgery. There’s always waiting times before and after the procedure, as well as time in the recovery. For upper eyelid surgery, the procedure can be done in approximately 45 minutes, however one needs to really keep in touch with the office to see what time to pick up a patient from the office.
