Eyelid Ptosis and blepharoplasty
How many blepharoplasties can someone have ?
There is no specific number of blepharoplasties that someone can have. The most important factor is to have enough skin for eyelid closure. See an oculoplastic surgeon for evaluation and treatment.
You concerns are very appropriate.
Unfortunately, surgeons often don't think long term. I would be very careful regarding surgery for this. You need to find care with very experienced fellowship trained oculoplastic surgeons. Even then I would think long and hard about having surgery. There will be very, very few community based surgeons with experience operating on a patent with Ehlers danlos. I suggest you develop a relationship with an academic oculoplastic surgeon to is not trigger happy. Less is more will be your watch words.
