Can you let me know how many times can you perform blepharoplasty (upper eyelid surgery) on someone?

In brief: Most people

Only need it done once.
Sometimes a minor secondary revision may be beneficial after a number of years have passed.

In brief: Rarely Necessary

Repeat blepharoplasty surgery is rarely necessary.
Although no facial rejuvenation surgery results “lasts forever”, blepharoplasty surgical results often last for decades. Repeat blepharoplasty surgery, if considered, should be performed very judiciously in order to avoid complications.

In brief: Depends

Usually just once, but occasionally people need revision operations for recurrent saggy skin or uncorrected fat bulges.

In brief: Less than 100

Certainly I am joking and this is not a joking matter. A blepharoplasty can be performed in the upper or lower eyelid and may vary in extent.
Therefore there is no consistent answer. When performed for reconstructive purposes, it may be performed several times but it is unlikeky that someone would really undergo more than 3 in most normal circumstances.
