In brief: Complication

This is a rare but serious complication of blepharoplasty surgery.

In brief: Should never happen

If this were to occur because of the surgery, it would be considered a serious complication and medical error. The eye is normally protected during the surgery with a plastic or metal shield and any suture needles or sharp instruments should not contact the eye during the procedure.
An ophthalmologist should be consulted immediately if you did not have surgery with an oculoplastic surgeon.

In brief: Uncommon

Most likely due to unintended trauma to the eye itself.
Should be evaluated by an ophthalmologist asap.

In brief: Should not

Blepharoplasty involves the eyelid skin and some fat removal may be eyebrow relocation.
It does not affect the inside of the eyeball therefor bleeding inside the eyeball is not part of the risks of this surgery.
