Eye lid surgery
The eyelid is some of the thinnest skin in the body - this goes for everyone. I would recommend visiting a board certified facial plastic surgeon or board certified oculoplastic surgeon to determine what your specific needs would be BUT in general, the skin being thin is not a deterrent for eyelid surgery. I hope this helps

Blepharoplasty with Thin Skin
The eyelid is actually composed of multiple layers of tissue. No ones skin is so thin that it cannot be incised safely. Therefore, you should have no problem having a blepharoplasty by an experienced surgeon if that is what you need.

Eyelid skin is very thin, but that is normal
Making incisions into the eyelid skin involves carefully opening each layer. I generally protect the eyeball with a metal contact lens. Even with this in place, I've never cut through to the metal shield accidentally. If you are in the hands of an experienced eyelid surgeon, they've likely seen just about every different type of eyelid and yours are likely more ordinary than you think.
The eyelids normally comprise some of the thinning tissue in the body. A clinical examination would be required to assess your anatomy and to determine whether or not a blepharoplasty is indicated for you. The next appropriate step would be to consult with a surgeon who specializes in eyelid surgery.
