Sometimes the eyes are more bruised than normal; this will eventually resolve itself completely, but it may take a bit longer for the eyes to look normal. It is very important that you stop taking any blood thinning medication such as aspirin, prior to your procedure. It may be that you cannot open or close your eyes completely for some time after the procedure or that the eyes feel dry.
Moisturizing eye drops may be used until the eyes are able to close properly and the tear production is restored. Pre-existing asymmetry of the position and movement of the eyebrows can create asymmetry of the eyelids. The eyelids may end up not completely symmetric, but if the asymmetry is significant and bothersome, a correction can be performed on one side.
In rare instances an inclusion cyst can develop in the scar which can be surgically removed. An extremely rare complication is excessive bleeding behind the eye (retro bulbar hematoma), which can lead to blindness if not aggressively immediately treated.
