I have eczema but not constantly, also on my eyelids, can I have eyelid surgery?

Can I go through upper and lower eyelids surgery at the time of flare-ups? But I never know when I can get it.

Generally patients with eczema heal well, but their eczema continues.  The healing period an be a bit challenging because of itching in some patients.  Often a mild steroid ointment may be helpful during the recovery period.
