If you are having Reconstructive Eyelid Surgery, be sure to tell your doctor if you are taking aspirin or aspirin-containing drugs or blood thinners or if you have a bleeding disorder. The surgery  is generally safe; however, as with any surgery, there are some risks. Serious complications are rare. The risk of losing vision is estimated to be less than one in 5,000 surgeries. Infections and excessive scarring occur infrequently and can usually be treated with immediate and proper care.
