Revision Eyelid Surgery Overview

Blepharoplasty (eyelid lift or lid lift) is a cosmetic surgery designed to correct natural deviations in the appearance of the eye or reverse visible signs of the natural aging process. When performed properly by a skilled and qualified surgeon such as Dr. Kenneth Steinsapir, the results can be absolutely stunning. However, if the blepharoplasty is performed incorrectly, even small alterations can significantly undermine your natural beauty.

At his private practice in Beverly Hills, California, Dr. Steinsapir, an internationally recognized expert in oculofacial and cosmetic surgery, plans and performs many revision eyelid surgeries to correct the disappointing results of prior eye surgeries. If you have had a blepharoplasty and are dissatisfied with the results, or even if you are unsure and want a second opinion, we encourage you to contact Dr. Steinsapir today. Your eyes play a crucial role in your appearance and your communications with the outside world, and there is absolutely no reason for you to be dissatisfied with their appearance!

What is Revision Eyelid Surgery?

The goal of revision eyelid surgery is to correct deficiencies or imperfections stemming from a prior eyelid surgery. Revision eyelid surgery is usually required for one of two reasons, both of which, unfortunately, often originate in the lack of a customized surgical plan and/or the utilization of improper or outdated surgical techniques.

For some patients, the original eye surgery may not have fully addressed the original aesthetic concern or even created new aesthetic problems. For patients whose surgery was performed recently, within the last six months, Dr. Steinsapir usually recommends waiting several months before pursing revision eyelid surgery. The eyes are a delicate area and can require extensive healing time. In some cases, dissatisfaction with the results of the prior surgery may resolve on their own with additional healing time, or may even be treated and resolved non-surgically. For some patients, however, the original eyelid surgery simply failed to achieve the aesthetic results they wanted, either because the changes were not dramatic enough or because the alterations had unintended side effects on the balance and harmony of the facial contours.

Why Choose Dr. Kenneth Steinsapir?

When undergoing eye surgery, it is critical to select a skilled, talented cosmetic surgeon who will utilize the most advanced surgical techniques to ensure optimal results. This is even more important when considering revision eyelid surgery. When planning for a revision eye surgery, the surgeon must not only ensure that this surgery enhances the balanced contours of the face, but he (or she) must also take into consideration the alterations and changes already made by the previous surgery. Unfortunately, choosing a cosmetic surgeon who does not have sufficient training or experience performing revision surgeries increases the risk of complications, side effects, and even more poor results.

Dr. Kenneth Steinsapir is a world-renowned oculofacial and cosmetic surgeon whose international reputation for cutting-edge, minimally-aggressive surgical techniques have led him to be sought out by patients around the world for revision eyelid surgery!

But perhaps most importantly, Dr. Steinsapir prides himself on his personalized approach, based on open, honest, and direct communication with every patient. He will take the time to understand your concerns and unique aesthetic goals, work closely with you to develop a personalized surgical plan designed to achieve those goals, then personally perform your revision eyelid surgery utilizing his less-aggressive surgical techniques in order to maximize the long-term success of your procedure while minimizing the potential for risk and complications.
