After eye surgery, some patients experience an unnatural eye shape or other funtional difficulties due
to unsatisfactory results or asymmetrical eyes. In this case, many of them consider a reoperation for
different reasons. A reoperation should be carefully conducted in order to avoid a second or third
reoperation. A reoperation should improve upon the unsatisfactory results of the previous surgery and
may cause unexpected problems during surgery. Therefore, well-experienced and skilled medical
professionals should conduct a reoperation.
An revision eye surgery cannot be conducted anytime and whenever you want. We recommend
patients to have a reoperation on the incision site at least six months after the previous surgery and at
least three months later if the surgical site is still swollen. In case of a patient who underwent
blepharoptosis correction, he or she may be able to have a reoperation 1 to 2 weeks after the previous
surgery. In other cases, we recommend patients to have a reoperation after eye tissue or scar tissue is
stabilized, generally it takes about 3~6months to be healed from previous surgery.
As each individual has different eye shapes and skin conditions, it is important to find the most natural and optimal height of double eyelids for you. Thick double eyelids make you look edgy from a long distance, but make you appear vacant from a close distance. On the contrary, thin double eyelids look natural from a long distance. Therefore, it is important to find the most optimal height of double eyelids in order to prevent such gap.
The depth of double eyelids is determined by the direction of the front and rear parts of the eyelids and their length. Even though the height of double eyelids is the same, the eye shape changed depending on the depth of double eyelids. Thin double eyelids may easily disappear and deep double eyelids look unnatural.
If too much skin tissue was removed during double eyelid surgery, it may cause excessive adhension and hollows under the double eyelids. In this case, the eye shape is unnautral. In the opposite case, it may case triple folds.
