I had a blepharoplasty (age 29) in 1985. I suffered from the most extreme complications, infection, ptosis, droopy lids. Over the next 11 years more than 17 revisions were performed to correct the deformities stemming from the original failed surgery. Ultimately had a palate transfer, which corrected the drops, but left my lid margins with hair growing onto the cornea, which must be plucked daily to avoid corneal abrasions.

Please use extraordinary care, and I highly recommend using an ophthalmic plastic surgeon.

The original surgeon did his best, stood by me, the subsequent surgeon who was supposed to be a specialist, failed me and abandoned me after placing an bacillus infected fat graft which nearly cost me my cheeks and eye and 2 months of hyperbaric treatment and the multiple surgeries. No, I did not sue.
