Is Blepharoplasty dangerous?

Find Cosmetic Surgery Clinics »

A Blepharoplasty is a surgical procedure involving a general anaesthetic, incisions into the flesh of the face, and a recovery period afterwards to optimise healing.  It is no more inherently dangerous than any other cosmetic surgical procedure.  However, you need to be realistic about the risks of surgery, no matter how minimal, and ensure you prepare well, can trust your surgeon, and are committed to following the recovery instructions for the best results.  Also, although it doesn’t involve the eyeball itself, you need to be completely honest when giving an account of your medical history, as the proximity of the surgery to the eye could potentially cause complications if you have any of the following: diabetes, hypertension, glaucoma, or cardiovascular problems.  You can minimise risk by being honest in your medical history and taking the advise of your medical practitioner.
