Periocular and orbital hemorrhage are rare complications of blepharoplasty, with a reported incidence of 0.055%. These complications are even less common more than 48 h after surgery. The authors report 2 cases of postoperative hemorrhage 5 and 8 days following uncomplicated upper blepharoplasty in which the initiating factor seems to have been uncontrolled hypertension. Details of the presentation, management and follow-up of each patient are described. These cases serve as an important reminder that patients must be appropriately counseled regarding the postoperative implications of their systemic conditions.
