You can have blepharplasty after having Silicone injections. In general, I don’t recommend silicone injections because it is a permanent filler and faces change as we age. But yes, you can have surgery after silicone.

Silicone injections and blepharoplasty

{{ voteCount >= 0 ? '+' + (voteCount + 1) : (voteCount + 1) }}

Your previous silicone injections in the area makes any future surgery in the area more difficult, less predictable and likely, a higher rate of complications.  Your surgeon should have specific experience not only in blepharoplasty, but in dealing with the complications of silicone injections.  

Please don't get any more injections...

Yes, you can still get blepharoplasty.  If you got the injection in the lower lids, it can make the surgery more technically difficult, so I recommend consultation with an oculoplastic surgeon.

The  use of liquid silicone is detrimental in all the body and still more in the eyelids. The surgery is possible but previously it is necessary to evaluate the degree of infiltration of the area . It is important to see some pictures of your eyelids.

The use of silicone for injection is not a good idea. There are a lot of long term complications associated with silicone injection. I would advise strongly against anymore silicone injections.
