If : If your are referencing the eyelash extensions that are on each individual hair - this should not be an issue. It is reasonable to let your physician know that you have them, but having them will not negatively impact your procedure. Be healthy and be well, james m. Ridgway, md.

It : It should be okay to leave the extensions on for your blepharoplasty. You should ask your surgeon first to make sure, though.

I : I do not ask patients to remove eyelash extensions before their blepharoplasty surgery. Long lashes are common today with the use of extensions and the increased popularity of latisse (bimatoprost).

Blepahroplasty: If they are extensions you don't have to remove them but if they are the standard fake lashes glued to the eyelid skin then they need to be removed.
