Eyelid Surgery Gone Wrong
Blepharoplasty Negligence Can Leave Distressing Consequences for Cosmetic Surgery Patients
Eyelid surgery or blepharoplasty can be performed on a patient’s upper eyelids, lower eyelids or both at the same time. Eyes are often one of the first features to show signs of ageing and as part of that aging process the skin around the eyes becomes less elastic and the muscles become looser. As they become looser, fat around the eyes may also bulge forward and make a person’s lower eyelids appear droopy.
The main purpose then of eyelid surgery is to improve the cosmetic appearance of the eyes by removing excess fatty tissue and skin from underneath the patient’s eyes and attempting to smooth crow’s feet from the corner of the eyes. During eye lift surgery, the eyelid muscles are tightened and the surgical incisions are closed using fine stitches. Sometimes a blepharoplasty operation can also be done to improve a patient’s vision by providing a less obstructed field of view, once droopy eyelids are restored to their former positions.
The area around the eyes as well as the eyes themselves are very sensitive and unfortunately in some cases eyelid surgery can go badly wrong. If your eye bag surgery has been unsuccessful you should consult with the expert help of Cosmetic Surgery Solicitors.

How Cosmetic Eyelid Surgery Can Go Wrong
For patients undergoing an invasive surgery like blepharoplasty there is generally some pain and discomfort for several weeks including swelling as well as itchy or watery eyes. These uncomfortable effects of an eyelid surgery should clear in a few weeks and most commonly patients who have eye lifts do not suffer their cosmetic procedures going wrong but rather report satisfaction and an improved self-image.
However after this type of eye surgery, the following complications can indicate that your eyelid surgery has gone wrong:
- Removal of too much skin leaving eyelids unable to close known as lagophthalmos
- Lop-sided or difference in appearance of both eyes
- Removal of too little skin or tissue
- Droopiness of the lower lid (ectropian)
- Overcorrection of your drooping upper lid. This can lead to damage to your cornea
- Blurred or impaired vision (in extreme cases this can lead to acute glaucoma)
- Partial or complete blindness (very rare)
If you have suffered with any of the above eyelid surgery related issues or have had other complications that may indicate that your cosmetic surgeon was negligent in treating your eyes call Cosmetic Surgery Solicitors today on 0800 634 0285 for free advice on whether you have a claim for eye lift surgery compensation.
