Complications following blepharoplasty.

Research output: Contribution to journalReview article

Abstract

Surgical correction of eyelid deformities yields a very high level of aesthetic improvement, and fortunately, complications following blepharoplasty are rare. But diligent care is required by nurses to assure that these complications remain uncommon. This article will describe the major and minor complications of traditional blepharoplasty and discuss the nurse's role in risk management to reduce the incidence of these complications.
