In brief: Yes
All surgeries have risks associated.
Ptosis repair complications can include: inability to close the lid fully (potentially leading to corneal drying/damage), asymmetry between appearance of lids on the 2 sides, scarring/thickening of the lid, in turning or out turning of the lid (& therefore the eyelashes) and of course residual ptosis.
