For me, i stayed there 7 nights as I was doing lipo also.
I dont' know whether it's alright to fly back but the 1st day post op, you'll be super swollen (at least for my case).
Throughout the 7 nights, i slept sitting down, pillows prop up high as if i'm reading. According, this can reduce further swelling.
But even with the cold compress, proping up pillows, pineapple juice, sinecch etc, i was still so bruised and swollen.
I can't even recognise myself 1st day post op, I looked like an 50 yr old aunty!
But of cos this is due to individual healing process, maybe my body weaker or perhaps it's because i smoke.
If you're taking flight, air pressure might cause it to swell even further.
(i can't confirm this though)
Personally for me, I would stay another 1 or 2 days just "to play safe" and let Dr Nara have a final look before coming back Singapore.
Be prepared for immigrations to ask what happen.
I came back SG 7 days post op but still was asked.
The guy asked what's the bruises about, i just said i went to cut double eyelids.
Can't advise you on the contact lens cos i don't wear them.
As for make up, as long as your wound is fully closed, i guess it'll be ok to apply make up gently.
From what I know stitches for double eyelids is taken out 3-5 days. Mine was taken out on 4th day. If you're coming back SG to remove stitches, you can ask Dr Nara which day to remove it. He'll let you noe
