I had upper Blepharoplasty/Eyelid Surgery about 6 weeks ago and am loosing upper and lower eyelashes. I had very swollen eyes and heavy brusing after the procedure...more so than other photos I have seen of other woman who had the operation. Is this eyelash loss considered a complication? Do eyelashes lost in this way usually grow back? If so, how long does it typically take? Thank you!

Eyelash Loss after Upper and Lower Eyelid Surgery
Eyelash loss after eyelid surgery is very unusual. If the eyelashes were avulsed by tape of something such as that, they should grow back. Latisse can be used to improve length and thickness, once the eyelids return to their growth phase.

This is probably due to the surgery and though not usual it can happen I would be patient and give it soem time.

Mild, temporray lash loss is possible after any eyelid surgery but significant lash loss is not normal. Is the lash loss segmental or diffuse. A photo (or examination) would be useful. See an oculoplastic specialist.
