Although eyelid surgery is a common cosmetic procedure, the eyelids are very delicate and should only be treated by an expert oculoplastic surgeon to avoid any surgical complications or unsatisfactory results. If you unfortunately end up with botched eyelid surgery, Dr. Guy Massry in Beverly Hills can help.Revision eyelid surgery - eyelid lengthening - front - Dr Guy Massry - Beverly Hills

The reason patients choose to have blepharoplasty is to eliminate the appearance of aging around the eyes. The most common aging issues patients want to improve with surgery include:

  • Sagging or loose upper eyelids
  • Under eye bags or hollows
  • Excess skin around the eyes
  • Fine wrinkles
  • Excess fatty deposits that appear as puffiness in the eyelids
  • Dropping lower eyelids

However, if a surgeon over-corrects or under-corrects the patient’s appearance with blepharoplasty it can lead to aesthetic and/or functional problems for the patient, requiring revisional surgery.

Botched eyelid surgery can leave you with the following unwanted outcomes:

  • Over operated appearance
  • Under correction
  • Visual problems
  • Retraction – the lower eyelid is pulled down and the shape of the eye has changed
  • Eyes can’t close completely – too much tissue was removed from the upper eyelid
  • The lateral canthus (outer corner of the eye) was cut during surgery and the eye looks and feels different

While these conditions are very difficult to correct, Dr. Massry has dedicated his career to helping patients who need complicated revision surgeries. First and foremost, when dealing with botched eyelid surgery cases Dr. Massry makes sure that the patient has a realistic expectation for the results of their revision surgery. Dr. Massry will do everything he can to help his patients achieve their desired results. However, the damage done to the anatomy in previous surgery (or surgeries) will determine the degree to which Dr. Massry can improve the eyelid form and function. During a consultation with Dr. Massry, he will examine the patient for scarred tissue planes, if there is good blood supply and tissue movement, etc., all of which affect the outcome of revision surgery. Finally even with a complete examination, it is not until surgery takes place that the true extent of the problems present become completely known.
