In most cases, the incision during upper eyelid blepharoplasty is placed in a natural crease thereby resulting in a scar that is barely visible. However, in some cases, the incision may not heal properly or it may extend beyond the natural crease, making it visible whether the eye is open or closed. A visible scar may also be due to its width.
Cosmetics may provide adequate camoflauge if it is undesirable. Scar revision, a cosmetic procedure to minimize the appearance of scarring, may also be performed.
