What Is Revision Eyelid Surgery?

Also known as revision blepharoplasty, revision eyelid surgery is a corrective procedure that can address many of the issues that may arise from an initial eyelid surgery. Sometimes these concerns arise from an inexperienced surgeon, or an ineffective procedure. While the list of factors can go on and on, the important thing is that we are here to help you finally give your eyelids the care they deserve.
Revision blepharoplasty is ideal for addressing a range of concerns, including:
  • Restoring symmetry
  • Removing residual tissue or bags
  • And adjusting the crease of the eyelid
In some cases, revision surgery may also be used to improve the function of the eyelid. When revision surgery is done for functional purposes, it may be covered by insurance.

What Is the Procedure Like?

The revision eyelid surgery procedure will be customized to your specific needs and desired results, even more so than regular eyelid surgery. Not only do we take into account your unique features, but we adapt the procedure based on your previous surgery. We carefully plan with factors in mind, such as any previous incisions or scarring, adjustments of tissues, and your facial harmony as a whole. In some cases, revision surgery can be done using the same incisions as your original surgery. This will minimize new scarring and help existing scars to heal more quickly.
Generally, the procedure lasts about 1-2 hours, but this depends on the unique nature of your procedure plan. Patients often also take this opportunity to combine revision surgery with other procedures, such as a brow lift or a different type of eyelid surgery. You will receive either local anesthesia or IV sedation to ensure your procedure is a comfortable experience. After your surgery, you can return home the same day.

I was a little skeptical at first not having met this doctor before, but after spending a few minutes with her I felt completely at ease. Dr. Sohrad is very mild mannered, extremely knowledgeable and very patient. At her suggestion we are meeting one more time before I decide on where to have my surgery. Post operation Update…Thank you for your tremendous skill in performing my operation. Your talent and caring manner is a credit to the medical profession. You are truly my new hero. Thank you, again.

What Is the Recovery Process?

Recovery for a revision eyelid procedure will be quite similar to your initial surgery. Depending on your unique situation and the amount of revision needed, it may actually be a bit shorter or longer. Typically, this still falls within an average range of 1-2 weeks for initial downtime and recovery with a focus on rest. Some swelling, bruising, and pain are normal, but vary from person to person. However, with proper medication and by following your post-procedure instructions, you can manage these side effects well.

When Can I See Results?

Similar to regular eyelid surgery, revision eyelid surgery will offer you long lasting results that can help you enjoy a more youthful appearance for years to come. But the goal is that this time you actually like the final results! However, it's important to keep in mind that revision eyelid surgery is a complex procedure. As such, it may take some time for the full effects of your revision to become apparent, as swelling and bruising first need to go down fully.
