In brief: Blepharoplasty

Blepharoplasty is a safe procedure.
You must follow the perioperative instructions of your surgeon. For best results have your eyes evaluated by a board certified surgeon with expertise in blepharoplasty.

In brief: Yes

Take a family/friend with you to discuss your eyelid surgery and help you ask all the questions .
There is always a risk/benefit analysis that goes with informed consent for surgery, regardless of the procedures urgency or anatomic location. What benefit do you expect with your eyelid surgery?? Be well.

In brief: Yes, it's safe

There will always be side effects for any type of surgery.
For upper eyelid surgery, an incision is made within the fold of lid. Through this incision, the surgeon removes the excess skin and fatty tissue, and then tightens the muscles and tissues. The chance of complications will be lower if you find a board-certified plastic surgeon who performs at least 100 procedures per year.

In brief: Yes

While any surgery has risks, eyelid surgery is a safe procedure.
After a consultation, your surgeon can make recommendations on the best way to do the surgery, but some patients needing upper eyelid surgery only can have the surgery done in the office with some numbing in the eyelids only.
