Revisional Double Eyelid Surgery, It's important to find the right procedure for you!

There are already many people who have had and are interested in Double Eyelid Surgery.
Many people can see a dramatic change just from this one procedure, meaning it is popular among both men and women.

But there are also many people interested in having Revisional Eyelid Surgery. This is usually when the shape and/or height of the eyes are different, or from any other problems that may have occurred following surgery.

▶ Cases Requiring Revisional Eyelid Surgery

Thick Double Eyelid Fold

Double eyelids may look thicker due to swelling after surgery. However, if the eyelids continue to look swollen after 1 year then Revisional Eyelid Surgery should be considered.

Incisional Method used in Previous Surgery
Non-incisional Method Used in Previous Surgery
Uncorrected Ptosis
The double eyelid crease, including the scar from the incision can be lowered or the excess skin between the double creases can be removed.
If it has been less than 2 weeks since surgery, then the condition can be improved by removing the tied knots. If it has been over 2 weeks, then the surgical site has already healed meaning that an incision needs to be made for revisional surgery.

Through an incision, ptosis can be corrected along with lowering the height of the double eyelid crease using the appropriate method to remove an appropriate amount of skin.

Asymmetrical Double Eyelid Fold

Asymmetrical eyes are very normal, but if the asymmetry becomes more severe over time then Revisional Double Eyelid Surgery should be considered.

Asymmetrical Double Eyelid Fold
Loosening of One Side
Difference in Levator Muscles due to Ptosis on One Side
New double eyelid is made on the desired site after untying the existing double eyelid crease.
The crease can be adjusted to balance the other side.
Ptosis correction is performed to balance the levator muscle in both eyelids to create more symmetrical double eyelid creases.

Indistinct or Reversed Double Eyelid Crease

Despite thick skin or excess fat on the eyelids, if double eyelid surgery using the non-incisional method is performed without removing excess fat, the crease can become indistinct or reversed.

Requiring Fat/Muscle Removal
Not Requiring Fat/Muscle Removal
The tissue between the previous and the new double eyelid crease can be removed after lowering the crease through an incision.
2-3 cm of partial incision may be required.

Multiple Double Eyelid Creases

Multiple creases on the eyelids may appear unpleasant so a corrective procedure should be considered.

Surgical Method
After removing all existing creases, a single crease is created by untying the adhesive tissue.

* Low Crease or Thin Fold

Due to the aging process, droopiness of the skin may cause double eyelids to become lower or thinner from the time of surgery. Also requesting a thin fold at the time of surgery due to anxiety may result in dis-satisfactory results after a long period of time.

Double Eyelid Fold Too Thin
Thin Fold Due to Skin Above Incision Line Covering the Crease
Condition can be fixed by untying the existing crease or making another crease over the existing one.
Condition can be fixed through an incision to remove any droopy skin.

No Change, or Appearance of Smaller Eyes After Surgery

When double eyelid surgery is performed without an awareness of ptosis or short length between the eyes may cause the shape of the eyes to appear very round and dis-satisfactory.

Requiring Ptosis Correction
Length of the Eyes are too Short
Condition can be corrected to strengthen the levator muscle and connective tissue by creating a new double eyelid crease which must be smaller than the existing crease.
Horizontal and vertical length of the eyes can be balanced by lengthening the width through an inner corner fold removal, outer corner extension, or an outer corner reshaping.

Severe Scarring After Double Eyelid Surgery

Scar induced from double eyelid surgery usually disappears within 3-6 months. However, causes for severe scarring can be due to inappropriate suture methods or the condition of the patients skin (keloid).

Surgical Method
Except for keloid, the condition can be improved by an incision to remove any scarring, in the case that the scare was induced from inappropriate suture methods, it is followed by delicate suturing.

Revisional Double Eyelid Surgery differs for each person depending on one's condition, and the time that has passed from their first previous procedure.

It's also important to decide on the right procedure for you after a thorough consultation with a specialist.

You should at least wait 3-6 months from your previous procedure before thinking about Revisional Double Eyelid Surgery.

But in the case that the results of the surgery are dis-satisfactory immediately after surgery then it is recommended that a Revisional Eyelid Surgery be performed within the first 2 weeks following surgery.

  1. usually very long lasting. Upper eyelid surgery can last anywhere from five to seven years to an entire lifetime, while lower Eyelid surgery rarely needs to be done more than once.
