Chalazion removal
I would like to know if I can have a chalazion removed and have blepharoplasty at the same time or is it recommended to have the chalazion removed first and let it heal and then have the blepharoplasty. My upper eyelid has become very enlarged from the chalazion and I have excess skin on my upper eyelid

chalazion removal with blepharoplasty  May 20, 2011 6:18 PM

Both can be done at the same time, since blepharoplasty is done from the front of the eyelid, while chalazion is done from the behind of the eyelid.
