Eyelid Lift/Ptosis Surgery Complications Expert Guide By Board Certified Surgeon

According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, around 20 million Americans receive some form of cosmetic or reconstructive surgery, every single year.

In 2020, eyelid surgeries were the second most common cosmetic surgical procedure, yet very few people understand their options when it comes to these surgeries, the potential risks they may face, or how to minimize them.

There are several distinct types of eyelid surgeries commonly performed today, for either health or aesthetic reasons. In a recently launched awareness campaign, Dr. Harvey “Chip” Cole III, MD, FACS, Quadruple Board Certified Surgeon, examines each of the common procedures and their risks.

Dr. Chip Cole has decades of experience specializing in oculoplastic and cosmetic surgeries of the eyes and face, which can be seen in his newest awareness campaign on blepharoplasty procedures. The campaign explores several of the most common reasons you may decide to undergo these surgeries, and the potential outcomes both positive and negative.

Complications from eyelid surgeries are most often mild, with some of the most common being bruising or eye irritation, but on rare occasions, more serious problems can occur. Dr. Chip Cole explains that in some situations, they may require a second surgical intervention to repair the problem, such as a drooping lower eyelid, or the complications may even be permanent, such as blindness.

The campaign explains that the best way you can avoid these complications is by ensuring you receive treatment from a qualified, experienced surgeon, and by honestly discussing any pre-conditions, health issues, or other factors before the operation. This will allow the surgeon to make informed decisions about which procedures provide the best chance of success for you individually, and which may be too risky.

The recovery process after blepharoplasty procedures is also explained in Dr. Chip Cole’s new campaign, which suggests that while many patients may perform their normal routines within a few days, it can take two to three weeks for you to completely recover. The most common issues during the recovery period include swelling, irritation, and bruising, but these symptoms are normal and rarely require further treatment.

Dr. Chip Cole has more than 33 years of experience and has performed over 33,000 surgeries, both reconstructive and rejuvenating. He has become known internationally as “The Eye Guy,” for his expertise in oculoplastic surgery, and frequently provides educational lectures on the topics of laser resurfacing and Botox wrinkle removal.

If you're considering a reconstructive or rejuvenating procedure, the first step is to understand the process, how to minimize your risks, and how to choose the right surgeon. You can find more information about dozens of the most common procedures, and what your options are, from Dr. Chip Cole.
