What is Revision Eyelid Surgery?
Some people have already received eyelid surgery, but are unsatisfied because their surgery went wrong. In those cases of eyelids are unraveled, uneven, or unnatural. It is important to accurately diagnose what went wrong in the first procedure so that there would not be a need for a second surgery. Moreover, in cases of revisions, since tissues are already damaged from the first surgery, corrections are difficult to be made. Thus, it is important to receive surgery from highly experienced plastic surgery specialist.
In this case, eyelid crease is gradually untied. It can easily be corrected with non-incision method.
Thin or low eyelids
If you have low eye crease it makes you look dull. In this case, we leave the original eye crease and create another crease above the original one.
Thick eyelids with scars
This case appears when eyelid is exaggerated and fat tissue is excessive. During revision surgery, eyelid thickness is repositioned. Excess scar tissue and fat tissue are removed.
In many cases, eye crease is uneven or gets unraveled. In this case, it is better to correct both sides and make them symmetrical again.
Even if eye crease is fine, it can be unsuitable to one’s face. Revision surgery can create natural and suitable eye crease.
Epicanthoplasty with scars
If previous epicanthoplasty left many scars, it can be reconstructed with revision surgery.
Ideal Eyelid Revision Time Frame
- Generally after 6 months, results from first surgery can be shown properly. We recommend revision surgery 6 months after the initial surgery.
- It is suitable when scar is soft, not hard, and the area has no redness.
- Infection should be completely calm down if you have any infection.
- Depending on the different cases, revision surgery is possible after 1 year from your previous surgery.
