    Yes, it is normal that blepharoplasty makes eyes watery. Although watery eye is not severe eye problem, yet it is quite annoying at work or at school. There are some steps you could take to help relieve the syndrome. 1. Place a humidifier in your room to add moist in air. Eyes are exposed to air so the dry air makes eyes dry too. 2. Apply some ointment to lubricate your incisions and eyes. 3. Instill some eye drops which could help wash out any irritants, and lubricate eyes. 4. Apply some warm compress on eyes. The warmth could help glands in eyelids to produce tear film to lubricate eyeballs, and use the warm saline water to wash eyes. 5. Avoid rubbing eyes. 6. Wear sunglasses if you need to go outside if any strong light or glare or sunrays. Blepharoplasty is a very common and popular surgery either functional or cosmetic. It works by removing extra fat and skin of eyelids or bags under eyes. It can make eyes look bigger and more starring. But because the incisions are in or on the eyelids, eye dryness is one of the most common side effects. But it is not a serious problem, after your complete recovery, it will go away.

    Well, it is possible to have watery eyes after the surgery, and we can also say that it can be a sign of eye infection. First, you should know that after the surgery, your eyes will be infected easily. And then it can lead to watery eyes. In that way, it will slow down your recovery speed. To treat it, you should go and see the eye doctor, and he can give some advices. And you should pay more attention to your eyes.

    It is not normal. When you get the watery eyes after a blepharoplastry, it means that your eyes get the infection and eyes inflammation. You should not sit in front of the computers for a long time. You'd better use some warm compress to make the eyes feel comfortable. You could also eat more food with vitamin C to moisture the eyes.
