Are stitches used in blepharoplasty? Does the surgeon actually put stitches in the eyelids during blepharoplasty, or are the incisions closed some other way? .

Most : Most surgeons use sutures to close upper eyelid incisions. With the lower eyelids it depends on the type of incision used (external or hidden on the inner part of the eye) and surgeon preference.
