Any type of eyelid correction or postoperative blepharoplasty complication should be well managed and studied before attempting its correction, as it could lead to a worsening of the original alteration. Although postoperative scars in a blepharoplasty are relatively rare, they can generally be improved by massage and late with the application of topical corticosteroids, with the understanding that their best use is during the first twelve months. An early intervention should be avoided as this can worsen the result and rarely improve the final result, when there is a healing problem, remembering that stress is a determining factor in the final result. The laxity of the canthus tendons should always be evaluated either by directly pulling the eyelid down, with an eyelid glide test, the impingement test, and a poor eyelid position prior to surgery should always be documented. In these cases, the surgeon who operates blepharoplasty must have a perfect knowledge of the management of the canthal tendons and have within his surgical resources the realization of the canthal application or the repositioning of the palpebral canthal tendon.
