"Blepharoplasty is a surgical procedure that focuses on the reduction of the eyelid to provide a rejuvenated long-lasting appearance on the patient and also improve visual obstruction caused by redundant lid tissue. Before determining the amount of eyelid fold resection, the brow level and contour should be established. Patients may have mild bruising or swelling around the eyes up to 14 days after the procedure, so wound care with topical ophthalmic antibiotic ointment is important and is used in the eyes of patients with ocular irritation. Complications of blepharoplasty include dry eyes, lower lid malposition, lagophthalmos and ptosis. Many of these complications are relatively rare and can often be avoided with careful preoperative planning and an appropriate surgical technique."
