does the eyelid surgery leave the lids pulled open more so, causing difficulty to close them?

A: Eyelid closure after blepharoplasty

As long as your surgeon doesn’t remove too much skin, you will be able to close your eyes after blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery).  There may be some initial swelling for the first few days which makes complete eyelid closure difficult, but after that, you should have full eyelid closure.  You may need to use some eyedrops in the early post-operative recovery period to ensure that your eyes are kept moist if you are unable to fully close your eyes.

Please consult with a board certified plastic surgeon prior to scheduling a blepharoplasty.

Best wishes.
