Many techniques for prevention and correction of complication after blepharoplasty have been developed, however, satisfactory method has not yet been documented. The purpose of this article is to review common unfavorable complications after Asian cosmetic eyelid surgery, and to propose several methods of treatment for effective correction. From 1988 to 2008, authors reviewed 364 cases(480 eyes) of complications after cosmetic eyelid surgery. Follow-up period ranged from 6 months to 16 years. The results of treatments were classified into excellent, good, fair and unsatisfactory by operating surgeons, other surgeons, and by patients. About 40% of complications requiring revisional surgeries were treated early within 2 weeks after first operation. Other 60% of complications were treated by late reoperations, at least 6 months after first surgery. Majority of patients were satisfied with the results. However, a few patients reported unsatisfactory outcomes which required additional revisional procedures. The correction of complications following cosmetic eyelid surgery remains a difficult task. The strategies for successful Asian upper blepharoplasty include not only careful preoperative evaluation and delicate operative technique, but also, proper postoperative interventions such as early secondary blepharoplasty.
