Upper Eyelid Surgery Possible Complications

Possible Blepharoplasty Complications

The most common complication from upper blepharoplasty is inadequate correction of the problem or asymmetry. If this is the case, correction can usually be made with a minor additional procedure. One must understand that complete symmetry is not possible. Nobody is completely symmetrical. Sometimes, the underlying bony structure is so different from one side to the other that symmetry can not be achieved.

Complications that can occur with any surgery include infection, blood or fluid collection, and unfavorable scarring.
