Revision Eye Surgery

What is Revision Eye Surgery?

If you are not satisfied with the results of your previous procedure, you can consider revisional surgery. Revision surgery requires more effort and skill, so it’s important to choose a surgeon with advanced surgical skill and know-how. Based on his extensive experience as a surgeon, Dr. Choi analyzes the causes of surgical failure and provides the best solution for each individual revision case.

Cases of the failed procedures:

  • Double eyelid line is too high
  • Double eyelid line looks swollen (like a sausage)
  • Double eyelid lines are different heights
  • Released double eyelid line
  • Double eyelid line is too low
  • Double eyelid line gives you a sleepy look
  • Visible scars
  • Unsatisfying double eyelids
  • Unable to close the eyes completely

Each patient case is different, so you may consult with Dr. Choi to choose the best option for your Revision Eye Surgery.

Revision surgery is recommended, if you... 

  • Have released double eyelids
  • Have asymmetrical eyes
  • Have different heights of double eyelids
  • Wish to change the shape of double eyelids
  • Have remaining swelling
  • Have visible scars from previous surgery

Details of the procedure

Surgery Time: 1 hour (could be changed depending on a patient's health condition and the surgical situation)
Anesthesia: Local anesthesia or Hypnoanesthesia (twilight anesthesia)
Removing Stitches: After 4~6 days

Operation Process

  1. Dr. Choi analyzes the problem and solution for a patient's eyes and design the most suitable shape of the eyes during the consultation
  2. During the operation, unnecessary fats are removed through incisions or tiny holes
  3. After the removal of unnecessary fats and muscles, the muscles of the upper eyelids are connected to the elevating muscles to create a double eyelid
  4. Stitches are made


Frequently Asked Questions

Q: How are thick double eyelids fixed?

A: The height of the double eyelid crease has to be lowered down through Revision surgery. If the skin of the upper eyelids is thick enough to make new double eyelids, Dr. Choi then designs the new double eyelid lines. If the skin is not thick enough, then the new double eyelids are made under the existing double eyelids.

Q: One of my eyes is bigger than the other eye. How can it be fixed?

A: Asymmetric eyes could occur because of surgical design that's given to each different eye or due to the difference in eye-opening forces.

If the design is different, then the design can be fixed by Revision Eye surgery.

If the opening eye forces are different, then Ptosis correction should be performed to strengthen the eye-opening forces.

Q: I previously have had Double Eyelid surgery but it has been released. What should I do?

A: People who have had double eyelid surgery and the double eyelids are released. The reason is either one of following:

There are thick soft tissues on the upper eyelids

There is a weak eye-opening force

You have worn thick lenses

You have protruding eyes

You rub your eyes frequently

Q: When can I receive Revision Eye surgery?

A: Dr. Choi recommends waiting at least 6 months after your primary eye surgery before considering revision surgery. We also recommend you consult with Dr. Choi about your concerns to determine if Revision Surgery is an option for you.

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Will I have noticeable scarring after Alar Reduction? 

Generally, people do get scars around the mouth and nose after the operation. However, at Answer Plastic surgery, we use our ultra-fine equipment when suturing to minimize the scars. Over time, the scar will become unnoticeable.

 

Q: When do people get Nostril Reduction?

When people do not have enough alar tissue cells, it is difficult to have an alar base surgery. In this case, those who have large nostrils often choose to reduce their nostrils.

Q: In which cases is alar lifting recommended?

Alar lifting is recommended for those whose have droopy alars. When the alars are sagging compared to the nasal column (the section between the nostrils), nostrils seem to be exposed. By lifting the alars, the amount of exposure can be reduced.
