VIP International Plastic Surgery Center in KOREA - Revision Eyelid Surgery

Are you suffering from a failed double eyelid surgery? Don’t delay your revision surgery anymore!
It’s not about just getting a double eyelid surgery, but rather, how it makes a harmonious balance with the patient’s overall face.
Most revisions take a longer time than the initial double eyelid surgery, and high surgery techniques are required.

Asymmetrical eyes – size difference of the crease
Cause Correction
When the eyes are asymmetrical after the surgery:
The size of the eyes can be different temporarily
because of swelling or hematoma.
Wait till the swelling goes down.
After the swelling is gone:
1. 1. If there is a difference after few weeks after the surgery,
it means that the height of the crease was wrongly fixed
during the procedure.
2. At first the crease line was fixed at the same height,
but the fold became undone.
This happens when the patient’s skin is thick and the
eyelid’s orbicular muscle is developed.
Removing the existing double eyelid crease line will
be impossible. Correction can be made by untying
the muscle particles and removing the skin and
fat underneath the muscle.
Another reason why a patient’s eyes look asymmetrical:
When the height of the eyebrows are different.
The patient should correct the height of his/her eyebrows.
The ‘sausage’ eye – when the bottom
part of the crease line is bulging out
Cause Correction
This frequently happens to a patient when his/her skin
and orbicular muscle are thick.
This can be corrected by removing the bulging tissue particle
underneath the eyelid’s crease line.
I can’t open my eyes well
Cause Correction
When a patient has a developed orbicular muscle,
thick skin, and a lot of fat underneath the muscles,
tissue particles are removed.
Because of this, a patient cannot open his/her eyes
well temporarily because of swelling or hematoma.
The patient should wait for the swelling to go down
and the scar to smoothen.
When the upper eyelid’s levator muscle is damaged
When a patient’s orbicular muscle and fat tissue underneath the muscle are adhered to each other (This happens to a patient who has a thick skin and a lot of fat underneath the muscles.)
After removing fat tissues underneath the muscle,
the surgeon will separate the adhered tissues and attach
the dermis layer and the levator muscle.
I can’t close my eyes well
Cause Correction
When a patient undergoes the double eyelid surgery, part of the orbicular muscle is removed, so the upper eyelid levator muscle is temporarily imbalanced. (It especially happens to a patient who has protruding eyes.) Wait until the scar smoothens.
When the eyelid skin is removed excessively. Correction can be made by removing the orbital fat.
My eyes look hollow
Cause Correction
This occurs in a patient who has thin skin and bulged eyes Making a deep crease so the crease line won’t
become shallow.
Double eyelid with faint crease lines
Cause Correction
This occurs in a patient whose eyelid skin is thick,
orbicular muscle of eye is well-developed, and a lot of fat is underneath the muscle.
By removing the excessive skin and the fat below
the muscle tissue.
When there are multiple folds – Absence of defined crease
Cause Correction
When the upper eyelid crease’s muscle or fat is excessively removed during the surgery, the levator muscle and the muscle that used to open the eyes are adhered.
The patient’s eyes are bulged and thick skinned.
When the eyelid underneath the crease line is bulged out (the so-called “sausage” effect).
When there is too much scarring on the crease line, and the fold is not normal.
To prevent the adhesion between the levator muscle and dermis layer and form a definite, long-lasting crease line, the bulged tissue particles underneath the eyelid crease line will be removed.
There is severe scarring on mu double eyelid creases
Cause Correction
If a patient with thick skin didn’t remove any excessive skin, a lot of scarring will be left, especially on the inner part of the eyes. There will be less scarring in the respective order: non-incision, partial-incision, and full-incision. Removing the existing crease line is hard, almost
impossible. However, by making the skin thin and slightly
folding the scarred crease line, the scar won’t be so visible.
The double eyelid crease line is unnatural and uneven
Cause Correction
This happens frequently to a patient who has thick skin, well-developed orbicular muscle of the eyes, and a lot of fat underneath the muscle. Correction can be made by removing excessive skin, fat and muscle.
My eyelashes are going in all different directions
Cause Correction
This happens when there is a lot of difference between the existing crease line and the incision line. This happens when there is a lot of difference between the existing crease line and the incision line.
There is abnormality in the crease lines
Difference of the height
When the crease
line is weak
When the crease line is
not defined from the corner
to the end of the eye
When there are
multiple folds
When there are two folded
line in the inside the part of
the eyelids
When the crease lines
height becomes narrower
from the inner corner to the
outer corner of the eyes
If the crease line of the double eyelid is not made to the entire eye length
Cause
There will be temporary height difference right after the surgery because of swelling and hematoma.
If the crease height difference continues even after the swelling goes down, this means the height of the crease was tied wrong during the surgery.
The same height of the crease line was made,
but the attachment has become undone;
this happens to patients with thick skin, orbicular muscle, and a lot of fat.
The height of the brows might be different.
This occurs in a patient whose eyelid skin is thick, orbicular muscle of eye is well-developed, and a lot of fat is underneath the muscle.
If the tissues are removed irregularly, the crease line will be uneven – faint creases in the outer lid, and strong crease in the middle. .
This happens when the muscle or fat of the upper part of the eyelid crease line was excessively removed so the wrong attachment was made.
When the eyes are bulged and the
skin is thin.
When the double eyelid’s creases are
bulging out. (sausage-like)
When there is too much scarring left
on the crease line and not giving the
normal double eyelid fold
The inner eyelid skin is thick so the scar forms easily and has multiple folds.
This happens to a patient whose eyelid skin is thick, orbicular muscle of eye is well-developed, and a lot of fat is underneath the muscle.
This occurs if the skin, fat, and muscle tissues weren’t cared and the dermal attachment was made.
Cause
Wait until the swelling is gone.
It is impossible to remove the existing crease line, so surgeon will have to make correction by: untying the attached tissues and muscles, removing the fat and skin, and incise the desired crease line.
The patient should correct the height of his/her eyebrows.
Correction is made by removing the
excessive skin, muscle and fat below
the muscle.
Correction is made by removing the excessive
skin, muscle and fat underneath the muscle.
To create a defined crease line and prevent the dermis and levator muscle's re-attachement, correction can be made by removing the bulged area underneath the eyelid's crease line.
Correction is made by removing the excessive
skin, muscle and fat below the muscle.
CCorrection can be made by removing muscle and fat underneath the muscle.
Correction can be made by removing excess skin, muscle and fat underneath the muscle.
Recovery period
Most revision cases take longer to heal, and the eyes will be more swollen.
Even the pupils swell, so frequent tearing,
blurring of the sight symptoms will occur.
The condition worsens for patients who rub their eyes often
or have high blood pressure. Best natural looking double eyelid with less
visible scars will be achieved after 6-12 months.
Swelling
There will be more swelling than the initial double eyelid surgery.
For this reason, patients should raise the upper part of their body and press
it with bandage, and ice massage for the first 2-3 days,
and subsequently warm massage.
Warm massage is an important requirement.
