Eyelid surgery is among the most complicated cosmetic procedures due to the sensitivity and delicacy of the skin in that area. When a previous blepharoplasty doesn’t go as planned, Dr. Leong in Morgantown WV can perform strategic revision eyelid surgery to help you regain your confidence and enjoy the youthful, attractive results you originally craved.
What is revision eyelid surgery?
If a previous blepharoplasty has compromised the condition or function of the eyelids, revision surgery can restore your appearance and help to achieve your original aesthetic goals. Previous surgeries may have resulted in ptosis (drooping lids), or in retraction of the lids (eyelids being pulled downwards), problems that may interfere with the normal blinking process and can make it difficult to close the eyes. Symptoms may include blurry vision, discomfort or pain, and dry eyes.
Cosmetic ailments of a misguided blepharoplasty can include the over-removal of fat, skin, tissue and muscle resulting in a hollowed, aged look along with volume loss and undue scarring. As a rigorously trained and vetted double board certified plastic surgeon serving the Morgantown WV area and beyond, Dr. Leong can correct all of these issues, replenishing your confidence and setting your mind at ease.
What are the benefits of the procedure?
- Correction of asymmetry
- Improved vision
- Reduction in fat and excess skin
- Enhanced eyelid function
- Boost in self-confidence
Who is a good candidate for surgery?
All candidates for surgery must be non-smokers of sound mind and body who are realistic in their expectations. If you suffer from any of the following conditions, a revision blepharoplasty could help meet your cosmetic needs:
- Droopy eyelids
- Puffy, tired appearance to the eyes
- Under eye bags and discoloration
- Unsatisfactory eyelid contours
- Trouble blinking or closing the eyes
- Asymmetry in the eyes
- Other complications or errors
What will my recovery involve?
Recovery for revision surgery is usually much like recovery for the initial procedure. You should plan to take 10-14 days off from work and other activities in order to give your body ample time to heal and recuperate. Some bruising, swelling and redness is to be expected, but these symptoms can be treated by applying ice and sleeping with your head in an elevated position. Dr. Leong will work closely with all of his Morgantown WV patients to ensure recovery is manageable and without incident.
