Due to the invasive nature of eyelid surgery, it is normal for patients to experience some discomfort following the operation. Bruising, swelling and irritation are common side effects, but when these are experienced over a lengthy period, or where other issues develop, it may mean that your surgery was carried out negligently.
Common consequences can include:
- Removing too little/too much skin or tissue
- Damage to the eye itself
- Asymmetrical-looking eyes
- Blurred or double vision
- Dry itchy eyes
- Bleeding behind the eye
