What are the risks?
All surgical procedures carry a small degree of risk. However, blepharoplasty is a common procedure, and the risk is minimal, providing the surgery is performed by a surgeon, such as Dr De Silva, who specialises in eyelid surgery.
Risks and complications from lower eyelid surgery include asymmetry, residual fat bags and lower lid retraction. Most are easily resolved, but lower lid retraction is a result of too much tissue being removed and requires complex revision surgery and reconstructive techniques.
Over 30% of Dr De Silva’s patients have undergone previous surgery. Dr De Silva offers revision eyelid surgery to correct problems created from previous surgical interventions.
