Eyelid Lift Heidelberg
Possible complications of eyelid lifting
Very rare complications of eyelid lifting
Although blepharoplasty is a relatively low-risk operation, complications may occur with this kind of surgery, too. Very rare complications may include:
- Postoperative bleeding: Very rarely possible in the first two days after eyelid surgery. Generally, postoperative bleeding can be treated very easily and quickly.
- Bruising: The tender skin around the eyes is very sensitive. Therefore bruising is to be expected after blepharoplasty. They abate by themselves after a few days.
- Swelling: The more extensive the surgery, the more pronounced the swelling may be thereafter. In some cases – for example, if surgery on the upper and lower eyelids is combined – in the first few days it may be impossible to completely close the lids. However, this situation will change very quickly for the better.
- Irritated eyes: Your eyes may be irritated and light-sensitive in the first period after eyelid surgery. If necessary, we will be glad to prescribe eye drops to treat this.
