When might I need eyelid scar revision?
- Posted on: May 15 2021
If a patient has had a blepharoplasty procedure done and has been left behind with a large scar or other imperfection, this individual may be an appropriate candidate for eyelid scar revision surgery, or a “revision blepharoplasty.” The revision blepharoplasty is done by Dr. Daniel Tresley of Northbrook, IL and can make patients feel more confident in the results of their eyelid surgery.
What happens during revision blepharoplasty?
Revision blepharoplasty is a procedure that is more complex than the original eyelid surgery. It can be done in a myriad of ways, depending on how severe the current concern is. Some of the most common conditions that can be addressed with eyelid scar revision surgery include:
- Noticeable scarring
- Lower lid retraction
- Hollowing of the eyelids
- Remaining bags underneath the eyes
- Rounding of the corners of the eyes
Any of these concerns can arise after blepharoplasty procedures, but a revision surgery can address them.
Why choose Dr. Daniel Tresley?
Patients faced with imperfections after their original eyelid surgery are urged to book an appointment with a professional to determine the best course of action to repair these issues. Dr. Daniel Tresley is a highly respected plastic surgeon in the area of Northbrook, IL, and is a board-certified ophthalmologist. This gives him unique experience in providing eyelid surgeries, including revision surgeries. His facility is conveniently located in the community and accepts new and established patients.
How much downtime can I expect after revision blepharoplasty?
In most situations, patients will want to take two to three weeks off of work to heal from their procedure. This depends greatly on the extent of the surgery and the patient’s career. In cases where patients work from home on a computer, they can often return to working approximately two to three days after their surgery if they are comfortable.
