What side effects does blepharoplasty surgery have?

It is very common after surgery to have puffy eyelids for a while, but significant complications are rare. You might have more trouble in the evening when trying to shut your eyes to sleep the first few nights. Your eyes may be irritated or watery for several weeks following the surgery, but this will return rapidly to normal. You may also have bruising resembling a black eye, and some light pink scarring that will fade over time.

Blurred vision immediately after surgery due to persisting local anaesthetic and ointment applied to the eye at the end of the procedure.

Our surgeons will explain all the risks, the likeliness of them occurring and any possibilities of complications upon consultation.
