When can I exercise following a blepharoplasty?

I would usually not recommend exercising in the first week. Walking is always encouraged although lifting should be limited. Following review at one week I would usually discuss what exercises would be best for you. Gentle exercise such as running and cycling can often be commenced after 2 weeks and swimming is encouraged once the wounds have healed. Often it is necessary to massage the scars once healed on order to soften the scars.
