Eye is a part that decides on whole impression on our face and that is why many people choose to get double eyelid surgery to improve on their impression in relatively quick and easy way. However this also lead to the increase in number of people who are considering eyelid revision surgery due to side effects or after effect as double eyelid surgery is universalized.
Double eyelid surgery revision has to be done in the most suitable methods according to each individual’s condition as well as correcting on the fault from the first surgery through accurate and definite diagnosis with systemic post-surgery care offered.
Revision surgery is required when the first surgery was done without considering various factors including the patient’s eye shape, thickness of eyelids, and so on.
There might even be unexpected side effects such as unnatural impression, sensitive eyes, congested eyes, dry eyes and so on.
Thus the revision surgery has to be precisely chosen according to individual’s condition on various criteria.
We usually recommend our patients to have their revision double eyelid surgeries 6 months after the first surgery. It is not like you can get revision surgery just because you didn’t like the first result, but the possibility of revision surgery can be determined when the attached tissue and swelling are subsided as much as they can. However the revision surgery after non-incisional double eyelid surgery can be changed according to the patient’s condition.
We will see the major reason for requiring double eyelid surgery revision.
Firstly, it’s when the double eyelid lines are significantly asymmetric. It could be caused by one side of double eyelids becoming undone or having difference on the structure as one side of eyes has blepharoptosis. This case is corrected by matching uneven double eyelids line at the patient’s preference. It is also possible to correct double eyelid line that was undone according to the one that is still there.
Secondly, it’s when the eyes look even smaller after surgery as the double eyelid lines became too thick. There are many cases when the patients consider on revision surgery because of the ‘sausage’ shaped eyes that always looks swollen and possesses double eyelid line that is too high. This case usually occurs when the double eyelid lines were designed too immoderately, or when the fixing point was too high. This could be improved by removing the surgical area’s tissue to create more natural double eyelids.
Thirdly, it’s when the scar is remained very significant. This could be improved easily by removing the scar when there is adequate amount of skin or tissue is remaining. It is also possible to make the scar less significant by lowering the double eyelid lines when there isn’t enough amount of tissue remaining.
Apart from these reasons, double eyelid surgery revision has to be also considered when excessive amount of eyelid skin was removed, eyelids skin became saggy, and functional issues like having difficulties on opening eyes.
Patients are considering double eyelid surgery revision due to many reasons. Revision surgery especially requires skilled doctor’s experience and skill as it is difficult than the first surgery and requires different methods according to the cause of side effects. Thus it is possible to create beautiful eyes that you can be fully satisfied while preventing another failure.
