Complications of Blepharoplasty
02 June 2008 (online)
Blepharoplasty is one of the most commonly performed surgeries for rejuvenation of the periorbital region, yet its complexity is often underappreciated. The surgeon must have a precise understanding of the underlying anatomy from skin to orbital rim and must recognize which components require surgery to achieve a desired aesthetic result in each individual. Understanding the limitations imposed by a particular patient's anatomy and conveying realistic aesthetic expectations are essential to avoid complications. The underpinning of successful blepharoplasty is an awareness of potential complications (Table 1) and understanding how best to avoid them and how to manage them.
