Upper Blepharoplasty Despite Severe Dry Eyes?
I'm a 32 year-old male suffering from severe dry eyes, but I want to get upper Blepharoplasty done to correct very droopy lids. Is there any way this could be done, if approached carefully enough, to ensure completely that my dry eye problem will not worsen after the procedure (of course, accepting that for the first weeks it will be worse inevitably)? Any answer would be greatly appreciated.
