What Is Revision Eyelid Surgery?
Revision eyelid surgery, also known as revision blepharoplasty, is a surgical procedure designed to correct or improve the results of your initial blepharoplasty. If you feel that you’ve been left with unsatisfactory cosmetic results following your initial treatment, revision eyelid surgery can help correct these problems and help you achieve the desired outcome. The procedure can also prove ideal for patients who want to restore their previous surgery’s results if signs of aging have begun to return.
At Chicago Oculofacial Consultants, we understand that revision eyelid surgery can be a delicate and complex procedure, which is why our team of experienced staff and a highly trained cosmetic surgeon will take the time to discuss your previous experience in detail before providing you with a personalized treatment plan that meets your specific needs.
Revision Blepharoplasty Surgery Overview
Typically, revision eyelid surgery is done to correct and improve the appearance of either the upper or lower lid. This procedure can be performed alone or in combination with other cosmetic treatments for a more comprehensive result. During revision blepharoplasty, our experienced surgeon will use advanced techniques to address any issues related to your initial treatment, providing tailored results that can bring out your best. The surgery typically lasts for about two hours, though this varies, especially if combining it with other procedures for enhanced results. Dr. Williams will provide you with a comprehensive overview of your individual procedure plan before your surgery day, so you will always be fully informed about what to expect.

Schedule a Consultation
Am I a Candidate for Revision Eyelid Surgery?
The best way to determine if revision eyelid surgery is right for you is to schedule a consultation with our experienced, board-certified surgeon, Dr. Williams. During the consultation, she will assess your individual needs and discuss any concerns that you may have about revision blepharoplasty. Revision eyelid surgery has the potential to help patients who are dissatisfied with results that do not live up to their expectations. We believe plastic surgery should always leave you feeling like your best self, so we are committed to helping patients achieve their goals. The ideal candidate will be in good health and have healthy expectations, which we can discuss during your consultation to see if you are an ideal candidate.
After the Surgery: Recovery
Once your revision eyelid surgery has been completed, we will provide you with detailed post-operative instructions to help ensure a successful recovery. We will be there for you from start to finish to answer any questions and address any concerns that may arise along the way. Most patients can expect to experience some level of bruising, pain, and swelling following their revision blepharoplasty, which gradually fades. This initial recovery period usually lasts about two weeks, though this can vary, and patients typically take this time off from work and physical activities. As you recover, Dr. Williams will likely see you for a follow-up visit and can let you know when you may return to your daily routine.
After the Surgery: Results
Once you have fully recovered from revision eyelid surgery, the results can typically be seen immediately. After any swelling and bruising have subsided, a more complete result will become apparent, which is within a couple of months. Your revision blepharoplasty results should last for many years to come with proper care and maintenance. Our experienced surgeon is here to discuss all of your revision surgery needs and provide you with aftercare tips to see the best outcomes possible.
