Are There Risks And Complications From EyeLid Surgery?

As with any surgical procedure, there are possible risks and complications. For eyelid surgery, the following are possible:

  • Bleeding
  • Infection
  • Blood clots
  • Visible scars
  • Tightness in lids
  • Drooping lower lids
  • Dryness
  • Partial vision loss in one eye (extremely rare)
  • Blindness (extremely rare)

Usually, these conditions improve within weeks. Occasionally, however, these conditions are permanent, or further surgical procedures are necessary to correct them.
