An eyelid revision surgery is a procedure to either correct the results of a previous eyelid surgery or any defects or disfiguration of the eyelids. An eye revision surgery can provide aesthetic benefits by modifying the eyelids and the surrounding area.
Eyelid revision surgery can be a bigger challenge than the initial surgery. Here is what a blepharoplasty correction surgery can do:
Here are eight reasons why you may need an eye revision surgery:
You are a good candidate if you are in good physical health, a non-smoker and realistic about the risks and results of an eye revision surgery. The procedure can be done as young as mid-30’s and older. It depends on the condition of your skin and your genetic makeup and lifestyle. Please let Dr. Morgenstern know if you have any pre-existing medical conditions. People with glaucoma or diabetes may not be the best candidate for an eye revision surgery in Philadelphia but there are alternative solutions.
Some of the risks involved with an eye revision surgery can include bad reaction to anesthesia, bruising, infection, numbness, scarring and swelling. On rare occasions, other effects on the eyes can result in abnormal coloring of the eyelids, abnormal folding of the eyelid skin, dry eyes, inability to completely close your eyes and possible loss of vision.
Following your procedure, you may feel some discomfort in the eye area. Small bandage may be applied to your eyes and you can use an ice pack for comfort and help bring down the swelling, which can last for a couple of weeks. For the first week after your surgery, you should clean the eye area and use any drops given to you to lubricate your eyes. You should also avoid using makeup and contact lenses. Make sure to keep your head elevated when sleeping and using sunglasses and sunblock when outside. Avoid any strenuous exercise and lifting for a week or so after your procedure.
