If the surgery is done with laser, it may be the reason they like you to be off the Accutane.
I would not think that it would be a ;problem. But again it is for your safety. they want to make sure that you heal well and have no complication.
Accutane and eyelid surgery
Conservatively, waiting 6 months after stopping Accutane to have eyelid surgery is reasonable and safe. The reason to stop Accutane is due to possible delayed healing with cosmetic procedures. This delay is traditionally associated with skin resurfacing procedures, such as chemical peel or laser treatment.
