How long should I wait after an eyelift / blepharoplasty procedure to wear contacts?

This depends on the particular eyelift / blepharoplasty (Dr Young Seattle, Washington) surgery you are getting. In general, I tell people to wait to wear contacts two weeks after the procedure to allow the incisions to heal and to give you time for any discomfort from the procedure to be more tolerable.  The discomfort can be an issue with contacts when you have to stretch your eyelids to put them in.  It usually happens that at 2 weeks, your discomfort from the procedure is also much improved for you to put your contacts in as well.

I hope that helps.
