In most cases, the double eyelid line is large and thick, the double eyelid is lost, and the line is asymmetrical, which can lead to reoperation. Since revision surgery requires a higher level of skill than the first surgery, it is very important to have the surgery performed by a skilled plastic surgeon.

Cases of Eye Revision Surgery

01Faded or unraveled lines

The cases which unraveling of lines has been reduced, however, when the burial method is unraveled, the line is recreated after diagnosing the condition of the person's eyes whether the new burial method or incision method or partial incision method is performed.

02Too thin or low double eyelid

If the line itself is designed to be low during the first operation, a new double eyelid line is created and the operation is performed. If the line looks low due to skin hooding after the operation, it can be corrected by ablating the elongated skin.

03Thick double eyelid (Sausage lines)

It usually occurs when the line is overdesigned, and it also appears when there is a lot of unnecessary fat tissue. It lowers the double eyelid line and removes scar tissue and fatty tissue together to create a natural line.

04Asymmetrical double eyelid

Everyone has a different asymmetry in both shapes, but if someone has obvious asymmetrical eyes, a correction is needed. If the height of the double eyelid is different, correct the existing double eyelid line to the desired double eyelid line. If asymmetry occurs due to the ptosis, it can be corrected through ptosis surgery on the problematic side.

05Multiple double eyelid

It can occur when the fat tissue is excessively removed, releasing the adherent tissue, and repositioning the internal fat tissue to correct it. In some cases, a fat graft may be necessary.

06Eyes become smaller prior to the surgery

If the patient had ptosis but chose to undergo operation without ptosis correction, or the double eyelid was relatively too high in the eyes with short eyes, the eyes may look small. Eye line correction is available through ptosis correction, medial or lateral epicanthoplasty.

07Dissatisfaction of the double eyelid line

This is not the case when the operation is wrong, but the patient simply does not like the shape or height of the line. In such cases, you will be able to find out the exact line you want through an adequate consultation and correct it to an ideal line.

08Multiple fold on eyelid

When orbital fat was removed too much during the surgery, it can happen. These conditions can be corrected by dissection of scar tissue and repositioning of orbital fat. Sometimes, fat graft can be required for more exact correction.
