Understanding eyelid scar revision

Some individuals may be left behind with a large, noticeable scar on their eyelids after eye surgery. This can cause patients to still feel self-conscious about the appearance of their eyes, even after having a procedure done to address other concerns. With the help of Dr. Daniel S. Tresley of Northbrook, IL, men and women who need eyelid scar revision can find an effective solution! 

What is eyelid scar revision? 

With eyelid scar revision, Dr. Daniel S. Tresley can reduce or remove scars left behind from previous surgical procedures. This is done in a specific manner based off the severity and location of the scar left behind. During an evaluation appointment, our doctor will assess the patient’s current situation and make a recommendation as to how to improve the eyes and remove or disguise the scar in a better location. Revision blepharoplasty is a surgery that is then scheduled to address the problem with a trained, skilled, and board-certified professional. 

What can I expect from the recovery process following eyelid scar revision? 

As with other plastic surgeries of the face, patients will want to take time off of work, school, and other activities to ensure their skin heals properly following the procedure. In most cases, patients will want to take anywhere from one to three weeks to heal from their eyelid scar revision surgery. Patients who work from home on a computer will often be able to return to work within a few days, while those who work in careers that are more physically demanding may require more time before they can return.
