Eye Revision

Wonderful Revision Eye surgery carefully analyzes the cause of the first surgery's failure and selects the most appropriate revision surgery method considering the current eye condition.

Types of Eye Revision Surgery

Thick and Swollen Double Eyelid Creases

The main cause is due to unremoved fat tissues during surgery. The previous crease line would be undone to remove unnecessary fat tissues and a more natural crease line would be made by reshaping the tissues and lines of the upper eyelids by considering the ideal thickness of the creases and the amount of tissue left.

High Position of Double Eyelid Creases

This occurs when the crease line is made excessively high. The previous crease line would be made by re-adjusting the height of the crease line. Loosens previous knots and adjusts downward from the high crease height.

Thin Double Eyelid Creases

This happens when the eyelid skin is stretched or when the crease line has been made too low. Stretched / sagging skin will be fixated above or a new crease line will be made higher than the previous line.

Aging-Induced Droopy Eyelids

Improves the appearance of the upper eyelids by removing droopy skin (upper blepharoplasty) or employing other incision methods.

Asymmetric Double Eyelid Creases

This happens when the crease line height is made differently or when the eyelid muscle strength is different on each side. Asymmetry is improved by considering various factors such as the size of the eyes and the distance between the eyes and the eyebrows. The previous crease line will be undone to readjust both eyelid muscle strength.

Loose Double Eyelid Creases

This is a result of a weak fixated crease line. A new crease line will be made through the most suitable surgery method depending on the condition. The new double eyelid crease will be made using the most suitable surgical method according to individual eye conditions and patient's needs.

Severe Scars

Corrects the creases by elaborately removing excess tissue or scarred areas of the eyelids and suturing for a cleaner appearance.

Eye Revision Surgery FAQs

After the initial surgery, it is recommended that you wait at least six months (after the scar has healed and the tissues have stabilized) before considering revision surgery.

It is recommended that patients who have had multiple revision surgeries wait at least one year before considering another.

In some cases, surgery should be performed within two weeks before the scar becomes raised and hard.

Yes, it is possible. If the eyelid tissue or skin is still present, the scarred area is cut and sutured to correct the double eyelid line and operate.

Our doctors’ professional and accurate judgment is required to avoid removing too much tissue, Wonderful recommends consulting with our specialized medical team who are experienced in reoperation before deciding.

Even if the double eyelid surgery was initially performed via incision, reoperation via a non-incisional method is possible.

However, if the skin is too stretched or thick, or if the scar from the incision is very severe, reoperation with this method may not be possible; to see if this is possible or not, Wonderful recommends arranging for a face-to-face consultation.
