Will I be happy after revision eyelid surgery?
Dr De Silva only provides patients with sincere information on results from revision surgery, and a minority of patients he advises against surgery. Although most patients’ symptoms can be improved substantially it is important to have a discussion regarding realistic expectations, as previous scarring cannot be reversed only improved. A small proportion of patients may require two procedures.
What is the worst complication?
After a thorough examination most serious issues can be excluded (eyelid tendon laxity, skin shortage, functional dryness). The key aspects are recovery often takes longer with the final result as long as 12-18months after surgery. In addition, realistic expectations for improvement are important to discuss.
