Possible Complications of Eyelid Surgery

A possible complication of eyelid surgery is a temporary inability to close your eyelids completely. This means that eyes may become abnormally dry.

Usually this condition resolves after a few weeks or months, during which time you would need remedies such as eye drops. Some surgeons will have you massage your eyelids a couple of weeks after the stitches have been removed, to soften the remaining skin and allow better closure of your eyelids.

Other potential complications of blepharoplasty include:

  • Vision loss from retrobulbar hemorrhage
  • Eyelid infection
  • Double vision from problems with eye alignment
  • Noticeable surgical scarring
  • Malpositioned eyelids
  • Undercorrection (not removing enough of the excessive skin)
  • Overcorrection (removing too much skin)
  • Numbness of the eyelids

As mentioned above, always call your surgeon immediately when you have symptoms such as severe pain or a change in vision following a procedure.
