Will it be hard to close your eyes after Eyelift / Blepharoplasty / Eyelid Surgery?

Sometimes after Eyelid Surgery / Eyelift / Blepharoplasty it can be hard to close your eyes. This can be due to the local anesthesia that can numb the muscles that close your eyes. Also the swelling around the eyes can make it difficult to close the eyes depending on where the swelling is located. Oftentimes, you have eyelid skin that is taken with an eyelift / Blepharoplasty.  This decreased amount of skin will also lead to the decreased ability to close your eyes right after the procedure. Your physician should make sure not to take to much skin.  It is always better to be on the more conservative side of skin removal.
