| | The Most Common Complication Involved With Blepharoplasty
I will address some of the most common blepharoplasty complications:
Asymmetry: Because each eye is done individually, asymmetry so some degree is inevitable. If it is noticeable, then an additional surgery may be needed to correct it.
Too Little/Too Much Correction: It is not uncommon for a patient to wish he or she had less or more correction.
Vision Problems: This is an extremely rare complication, but there are situations where hemorrhaging can occur in the area and vision loss can occur. The odds of this happening are roughly 0.01% from what I am aware.
Infection: As with any surgery, infection is a risk.
Muscle/Nerve Damage: This can and does occur albeit rarely. It's important to realize this is a risk.
Healing Complication: Sutures may separate and result in irregular scarring, Depending on your skin type, problem scarring may occur regardless.
It's important to choose a skilled plastic surgeon who is eye experienced with eye lift surgery. Doing so is no guarantee but it should reduce your risk of some of these blepharoplasty complications.
“One popular new plastic surgery technique is called lip grafting, or "fat recycling" wherein fat cells are removed from one part of your body that is too large, such as your buttocks, and injected into your lips; people will then be literally kissing ass.”
