I’ve always had problems with dry eyes. Will this affect my ability to get an eyelid lift?
One of the questions that I always ask my patients prior to undertaking any eyelid surgery is whether they have a history of dry eyes. A history of dry eyes does not necessarily prevent an individual from having eyelid surgery but, your surgeon will need to be very cognizant of your history. I tend to perform a slightly more conservative eyelid lift for those patients with a history of dry eyes. The results are still terrific, but, I am more confident that there will not be any problems post operatively.
