Eyelid surgery—also known as blepharoplasty—is a small procedure that removes extra skin on the eyelids. With the procedure taking place so close to a sensitive structure like the eyes, patients can become anxious going into the surgery. This is completely understandable. Let’s look at the question, “Is eyelid surgery high risk?”

An eyelid surgery is one of the safest plastic surgeries. Guards are placed on the eyes to prevent any damage. It is also a quick procedure that can be performed under local anesthesia. There are few risks associated with the procedure, especially when you see an experienced and accomplished facial plastic surgeon.

There are risks of the surgery, but they are significantly less than several other plastic surgery procedures. Patients tend to see good outcomes from eyelid surgery and it is a well tolerated procedure.
