Rare. With a properly performed blepharoplasty or ptosis repair, this issue only occurs rarely. If you develop corneal issues, it may need to be repaired.
Complication. This is an uncommon complication of upper eyelid surgery. You should see your surgeon for treatment.
Yes. Yes this is one of the risks of the procedure. There is a fine line between removing enough skin to achieve patient satisfaction and removing too much. It is not unusual for this to, ccur temporarily after surgery and require the use of ocular lubricants. It commonly resolves by 3 weeks after surgery.
It happens. When inappropriately aggressive surgery is performed, this can be a result. See an oculoplastic surgeon who is both an ophthalmologist and facial plastic surgeon to ensure your surgery is performed by someone who understands the critical function of the eyelid.
Yes. An inability to fully close the eyes after a lid lift surgery is a known post-operative risk, especially after a large amount of skin or muscle is removed from the upper lid to "tighten" it. There can be some spontaneous improvement in this problem with time after the operation. It is advisable to use moisturizing drops during the day, and a lubricating ointment like refresh-pm or genteal gel pms.
Yes, but uncommonly. It is difficult, but possible, to remove too much skin from the upper lids to result in this complication. Many patients have incomplete closure in the early postoperative period and this is usually of no consequence. If you have a tendency to dry eyes before upper lid surgery, be sure to tell your surgeon. Depending on the degree of dryness, he may modify or not do the procedure.
