The number of eyelid surgeries that a patient can have depends entirely on how much skin remains. Skin stretches and ages and is is not uncommon that a patient may need repeat eyelid surgery. If only small skin removals are done at each sitting, it is possible that another one may be needed in the future. I would never make a blanket statement like "you should never have another eyelid surgery" unless there is a good reason preventing it.
