Pupil changes should resolve 1 month after blepharoplasty

Your pupils may be misshapen based on the swelling of the surgery or any eyedrops that you may be taking in the aftercare. This should resolve on its own within a month after the surgery. Blepharoplasty surgery does not involve any surgery on the pupils, only the skin structures on the eyelids.
