Yes. Swelling in the eyelids is very normal after eyelid surgery, to the point that your eyes may feel hard to open. The swelling actually peaks at 24-48 hours after surgery and will then begin to decrease. You can sleep with your head slightly propped up to help the swelling drain down your face. Using ice during the first 24 hours is very helpful.
