Need is always relative.
Nothing lasts forever. It is not that unusual to benefit from revisional eyelid surgery or alternate procedures like a forehead lift. Ultimately your needs must be assessed by a properly qualified cosmetic surgeon. There are no absolutes about this. How you feel about having more surgery and achieve your aesthetic goals is perhaps the most important consideration here.
Longevity of blepharoplasty?
We all age differently and as we get older we age faster. Generally speaking a Blepharoplasty lasts 8-10 years.
The longevity of any cosmetic procedure depends on how it was done and your genetic aging curve. Consult a qualified surgeon for timing.

Getting the most out of your Blepharoplasty
The amount of time a blepharoplasty lasts varies in depending on the individual. Generally speaking it should last ten years or so. Your skin elasticity will play a role in how long it will last for you. It tends to last longer in younger patients. Your heredity has some influence. Ways to get the most out of your surgery include avoiding smoking and sun exposure, and to maintain a youthful appearance with good skin care products. Botox is a terrific adjunct to blepharoplasty help to prolong a more youthful look.
Longevity of eyelid surgery
Aging is so different for each of us. Genetics has something to do with longevity, but weight gain or loss, sun exposure,smoking history, whether brow ptosis is an issue or not- all have something to do with expected longevity. As an average, 8 to 10 years is very acceptable for a result. Check with your local Plastic Surgeon for a more accurate evaluation after a thorough examination.
Blepharoplasty Results Are Not Permanent
People do age differently and it also depends on at what age was the original blepharoplasty done. But most patients will get anywhere from 7 to 10 years of lasting results from a blepharoplasty before they return to their original problem. Your question is a good one because it recognizes that any form of anti-aging surgery of the face does not cure the problem, it merely treats the symptoms of it.
Longevity of eyelid surgery
I tell my patients that ten years is a reasonable amount of time before a second blepharoplasty should need to be performed. Like all other areas of the face, factors such as smoking, sun exposure, skin care, and even nutrition will have some effect on the eyelid skin and you may desire a second blepharoplasty sooner if your face ages more quickly.
