Yes. My sister-in-law has been treated for an irregular heart beat for 5 years now and just a month ago she had eyelid surgery and faired very well. The surgeon will get all the specifics on you (be sure to tell the surgeon the medications you are on) and when surgery is scheduled it's usually on an "out patient basis" meaning you can go home in a few hours after surgery. They will monitor you during the procedure (approx. 1 hour) and after the surgery.
