I had double eyelid surgery and I want to lower my crease. What are the risks of doing that?

Oculoplastic Surgeon: The upper eyelid crease is usually 8-10mm from the eyelashes. This distance may increase with common conditions such as blepharoptosis (eyelid drooping) or with significant dermachalasis (excess wrinkled skin of upper eyelids). If the crease is too high, the results of eyelid surgery are not ideal and usually looks somewhat unnatural. An eyelid specialist is best suited to evaluate and correct.

How long does it take to heal from double eyelid surgery?

How long does it take to heal from double eyelid surgery?

Usually, not long: Eyelid skin is the thinnest, best healing skin of the body, and usually heals quickly and well from eyelid surgery. Of course, any scar will look a little red after a couple of weeks, but eyelid scars tend to lighten and fade quicker than any other area - typically the scars can be hidden with makeup after a couple of weeks. Many patients have almost invisible scars within a few months.

When did people start getting double eyelid surgery? How common is it?

When did people start getting double eyelid surgery? How common is it?

Upper & Lower?: It is safe to perform upper and lower eyelid lifts at the same time if that is what is required. There is generally more swelling in both afterward. Over the years I find that I do less lower eyelid skin excision and more fat injection and laser resurfacing of the lower lids, in conjunction with upper blepharoplasty. However some folks have significant lower eyelid skin that requires excision.

Does it matter whether you get lasik or double eyelid surgery first?

LASIK First.: I prefer lasik be done first because the lid speculum that holds your eyes open during the lasik procedure can stretch some of the eyelid muscles. You should wait at least 3 months after the lasik before having eyelid surgery.

What is the recovery time after eyelid surgery?

What is the recovery time after eyelid surgery?

Pretty short: Upper lid blepharoplasty is a very straightforward operation; I have had patients with very little bruising and swelling return to work in 2-3 days. There is generally more bruising and swelling with lower lid blepharoplasty, but this can be covered with makeup about 5 days postop. Either way, pain should be minimal. Good luck!
