Eyelash irritation

Without examining you it is impossible to know what the problem is.  However, I have seen patients with this complaint and often they have misdirected lashes the catch on each other as they blink. An eye exam could sort this out. An eyelash curler would be an easy thing to try and if it worked your question would be answered.

Dry eye

Sometimes dry eye symptoms can manifest themselves in eyelash symptoms. I would recommend trying lubricating eye drops [there are many brands to chose from] four times a day to see if this improves your symptoms.

Small sensory nerves are cut during blepharoplasty which may cause this sensation during healing.

The sensation you are feeling may be due the the healing of the incision.  If  you are concerned, check back with the doctor who did the procedure.
