WHAT IS REVISION BLEPHAROPLASTY
Revision blepharoplasty, also know as post-blepharoplasty repair, with Dr. Schwarcz is surgical procedure that corrects drooping eyelids after undergoing a previous blepharoplasty. He can address less than desireable results from a previous surgery by manipulating the lids, creating anaesthetically pleasing result.
WHY MIGHT I NEED REVISION BLEPHAROPLASTY
You might opt for post-blepharoplasty repair with Dr. Schwarcz if you experience the following:
- Unsatisfactory results from past eyelid surgery
- Sagging or drooping eyelids
- Bags under your eyes
- Tissue that impairs peripheral vision
- Asymmetrical eyelids
IS REVISION BLEPHAROPLASTY RIGHT FOR ME
To find out if you’re a good candidate for post-blepharoplasty repair, Dr. Schwarcz reviews your medical history, discusses your desired outcome, and examinees your eyelids. You must be in good overall physical health and have realistic expectations.
HOW SHOULD I PREPAIR FOR REVISION BLEPHAROPLASTY
In preparation for post-blepharoplasty repair, follow all pre-procedure instructions. Stop taking certain medications if Dr. Schwarcz recommends it, arrange for someone to drive you home after surgery, and don’t eat or drink anything the morning of your scheduled procedure.
WHAT HAPPENS DURING THE PROCEDURE
When you arrive at Dr. Schwarcz’s office for post-blepharoplasty repair, you’re given local anesthesia with a sedative or general anesthesia to put you to sleep. You won’t feel any pain.
Dr. Schwarcz makes tiny incisions within your eyelids, removes or repairs tissue, closes the incisions, and takes you to a recovery area to rest. Your surgery might last 1-2 hours.
WHAT DOES RECOVERY INVOLVE
After post-blepharoplasty repair, follow Dr. Schwarcz’s post-procedure instructions. Have someone drive you home, take medications as directed, get plenty of rest, and avoid vigorous activity until he gives you the okay.
You might take a few days up to a week off from work. Expect mild pain or irritation, dry eyes, swelling, or bruising during recovery. Apply cold packs or ointments as needed, and wear sunglasses until your eyelids heal. Dr. Schwarcz can remove your stitches after about a week.
