Revisional Eyelid Surgery
After aggressive cosmetic surgery, several problems that can occur. Seeking a skilled surgeon to resolves these issues is paramount to providing you with the best results possible.
If you cannot close your eyes after upper or lower eyelid blepharoplasty, your surgeon likely removed excessive tissue during your surgery or you had excessive scarring from the surgical approach that was selected. There are several methods used to improve your blink function and produce a cosmetically pleasing result. Depending on the abnormality of your lids, Dr Zatezalo will select an appropriate treatment regimen to address both the functional and cosmetic components of your lids.
You may also notice a hollow appearance several months after your surgery when the swelling has resolved. Although you may have been happy with the results immediately after your surgery, hollowing of the eyelids usually do not appear for several months. When this occurs, there are several options for volumizing eyelid tissue.
You may also notice that you have a round appearance at the corner and outer segment of the lower lid or that the lower lids are too low and exposing the white part of your eye (this is called retraction). This can lead to an unnatural appearance and dryness of your eye after cosmetic surgery. The dryness occurs as surgical trauma has compromised key structures needed for normal blink dynamics. Correcting this rounded and retracted lower lid abnormality not only rejuvenates the eyelid by restoring the natural eyelid shape, but also improves your blink dynamic and allows for a healthier ocular surface with an improved blink.
After your eyelid surgery, you may also have an asymmetrical eyelid creases. Although a difficult problem to correct, a meticulous revisional surgery can improve symmetry.
