The Risks of Eyelid Surgery

Not everyone is a good candidate for eyelid surgery. There are certain medical conditions that cause eyelid surgery to be nothing less than risky. If you suffer from hypothyroidism or Graves' disease, having an eyelid surgery would put you in a high-risk category and your doctor might discourage you from wanting to have the surgery. If you suffer from dry eyes and do not always have enough tears then you might want to think twice about eyelid surgery. Other medical conditions can also put an individual at a greater risk of complications such as those who suffer from diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease and other kinds of cardiovascular disorders. If you have glaucoma or a detached retina these are also medical reasons that should make you seriously consider whether eyelid surgery is worth the risk to your health. Talk to your ophthalmologist if you are considering eyelid surgery.

The good news about eyelid surgery is that the risks are few and far between. As long as the surgery is performed by a skilled and qualified plastic surgeon they are generally very minor and do not happen very often. However all types of surgery do pose some risks. Two of the most common when it comes to eyelid surgery are the risk of infection and the worry that the individual will have an adverse reaction to the anesthesia. One of the best ways to decrease the risk of complications of eyelid surgery is to follow all of the plastic surgeon's instructions, both pre-op and post-op.

Included in the list of potential minor complications of eyelid surgery is that of blurred or double vision for the first couple of days following the surgery; swelling at the corners of the eyelids that is temporary but can cause some discomfort, and a slight bout of asymmetry in relation to both healing, scarring or both.

Sometimes sleeping can pose some problems after eyelid surgery because some patients have a problem closing their eyes completely shut when they go to sleep. It is very rare but there have been reported cases where this condition has become permanent. There is another rare medical condition known as ectropion that has been known to occur. Ectropion is when the lower eyelids are pulled down. When ectropion takes place it often necessitates a second surgery.

Healing after some surgeries is faster than others. Eyelid surgery is one type of cosmetic procedure that tends to be slow but most patients are very pleased with the results afterwards. Eyelid surgery can have a negative psychological effect on a person, as many people feel lethargic and downright depressed the first week or two after the surgery. This is especially the case when an individual's face is both bruised and swollen. If this happen to you be aware that it is normal and it will go away in due time. The scars from eyelid surgery will fade as time passes and they generally fade very well and before long they will not be obvious whatsoever.
