Revisional Eyelid Surgery Before & After Gallery

All of the following patients had revisional (redo) surgery to correct problems associated with previous procedures. The revisional procedures involved surgery on the forehead (eyebrow lift), eyelids (blepharoplasty, ptosis repair, canthoplasty, etc.) and midface (cheek lift). The particular procedures are described for each individual case. Learn more about revisional eyelid surgery with Dr. Massry. 

Patient 1

This patient had fat grafting under the eyes with another surgeon and was very unhappy with the results. She came to Dr. Massry for a revision surgery so he could remove the fat grafting from under her eyes. In addition, he performed an outer brow lift and upper and lower blepharoplasty to rejuvenate her overall appearance. 

Patient 2

This woman was very unhappy with pulled down (retracted) lower lids from previous surgery by another doctor. After revisional surgery (midface lift, canthoplasty, lid elevation) she is much improved.

Patient 3

This woman had a poor outcome to her previous lower lid surgery (by another surgeon) with lower lids which pulled down (retracted) allowing the white to show under the iris (colored part of the eye). This is called “scleral show” and makes the person look “wide-eyed”. After revisional surgery (cheek lift, canthoplasty, lid elevation) she is much improved.

Patient 4

This woman had lower lid surgery elsewhere which led to pulled down (retracted) lower lids. She felt this looked strange. After revisional surgery to correct the problem (canthoplasty, cheek lift and lid elevation) she was much happier with her appearance. 

Patient 5

This wonderful woman, unfortunately, ended up with her lower lids being pulled down (retraction) and out (ectropion) after eyelid surgery with another doctor.  She also had ptosis or upper lid height drooping. These pictures show her before and less than one month after complicated lower lid revision and upper ptosis repair (muscle shortening to lift lids). She is much better and very happy with her appearance.

Patient 6  

This patient underwent lower eyelid fat grafting several years ago with another surgeon. As you can see, she was left with lumps and bumps from the fat transfer and became very self-conscious of her appearance. Dr. Massry performed a novel procedure to remove the lumps and bumps through an incision inside the lower eyelid without making any skin incisions. Learn more about this patient's surgery in Dr. Massry's blog.

Patient 7

This young man had a pulled down left lower lid after trauma (fracture of bones around the eyes). This occurred because of the surgery to fix his fracture and not the fracture itself. After revisional surgery (release of scar, canthoplasty, and lid elevation) he is much better at only ONE MONTH AFTER SURGERY.

Patient 8

This woman's right lower lid was pulled down after cosmetic surgery from another doctor. After correction (canthoplasty, cheek lift, lid elevation) the right eyelid looks perfect. Her left lower lid is also slightly pulled down, but she declined to have it revised.

Patient 9

This woman had pulled down (retracted) and turned-out ectropic lower lids after cosmetic surgery elsewhere. After lower lid lift, cheek lift, skin graft and canthoplasty she was much improved. This example shows how patients can often be improved but never made perfect (depending on the degree of the presenting problem).

Patient 10

This woman also had lower lid cosmetic lower lid surgery elsewhere. She was left with an ectropic (turned-out) lower lid on the left after surgery. Dr. Massry revised the lid, in the office under local anesthesia with an excellent result.

Patient 11

This young woman had previous lower lid blepharoplasty, which “shortened her eye opening” and her eyes looked smaller. Dr. Massry performed a canthoplasty (canthal reconstruction) with horizontal eyelid lengthening or the “CHEL” procedure.  Briefly, Dr. Massry opens the shortened eyelid opening and performs a complicated procedure called “conjunctival flaps” to line the new and lengthened eyelid opening to make the eye look more normal (like it used to be).
