The most important factor in speeding up the recovery time is minimizing bleeding during surgery. This is particularly difficult in Asian eyelid surgery because Asian eyelid is very vascular. What vascular means is that there are lots of blood vessels in Asian eyelid. Therefore during double eyelid surgery, it is easy to cut these blood vessels. And therefore bleeding will lead to bruising and significant swelling.
The reason blood impedes fast recovery after double eyelid surgery or Asian eyelid surgery is that white blood cells have to come in and get rid of these blood. And by doing so, it creates inflammation in the eyelid. Inflammation leads to prolonged swelling and impedes fast recovery after double eyelid surgery. This mechanism of recovery and swelling is applicable in other Asian eyelid surgery as well. Therefore, it is imperative that bleeding is minimized during Asian eyelid surgery or double eyelid surgery.
