Complications of Blepharoplasty
Blepharoplasty is a common procedure to restore the youthful appearance to the upper and lower eyelids. Although this cosmetic procedure is safe, adverse events can still occur. Appropriate knowledge of periorbital anatomy, a systematic preoperative assessment as well as a meticulous surgical technique will minimize the risk of complications. However, if complications occur, timely management is critical. This chapter will review the ocular anatomy, patient assessment, and the different surgical approaches. Additionally, management of a comprehensive spectrum of blepharoplasty complications will be discussed.
