What are the some of the possible complications related to blepharoplasty Lakeland surgery?
“Dog ears” are more of a possibility with the open approach, and may also require secondary correction. Scars are not particular to the blepharoplasty procedure, but their prominence, or asymmetry if present, after this procedure may be hard to mask, and may require revision blepharoplasty surgery or other means of making the inconspicuous. Blindness is caused by pressure due to bleeding into the eye-socket, and is exceedingly unusual. Bleeding around the eye is a true surgical emergency and needs prompt decompression. Damage to the muscles that move the eye (especially the inferior oblique) is also a possibility. This would necessitate prompt repair, and in the case of a delayed diagnosis a reconstruction at a later time. Dryness of the eyes may be exacerbated or unmasked by blepharoplasty surgery. In spite of certain pre-operative tests and a thorough history, it may not be avoided. Ectropion, (an out and down dislodgment of the lower lid from the eyeball), scleral show (drooping lower lid), lid irritation, and at times entropion, may be caused by lower lid blepharoplasty. This may require further surgery for failure to resolve within several months. Difficulty closing the eyelids, owing to scar contracture may necessitate surgery to prevent permanent damage to the corneae. Eyelid hair-loss is typically temporary if it occurs, but if lashes fail to grow back within 4-6 months, surgery may be warranted. Transient swelling at the corners of the eyelids is quite common, and more so when upper and lower lid work is combined. This is usually self-limited, but takes several weeks to months to resolve.
