Eyelid Surgery

Revisional Eyelid Surgery

Some of the most dreaded complications of facial plastic surgery are those associated with the eyelids. The eyes and eyelids are very sensitive structures and are not as forgiving. As an oculoplastic surgeon with expertise in plastic surgery around the eye, a majority of Dr. Parsa’s referrals are patients who have had previous complications with facial plastic surgery and now require cosmetic and functional correction around the eyelids. Depending on the specific problem, the necessary correction may involve a simple procedure or a complex eyelid reconstruction. Our goal is to regain normal function while maintaining aesthetic outcome.

We would like to help you achieve the results you are looking for so contact our office to meet with Dr. Kami Parsa and get started.

I have had cosmetic surgery before and now I cannot close my eyes, can you help me?

This is probably the most common complaint that is referred to Dr. Parsa for surgical correction. This problem usually happens when during the previous surgery excess tissue and skin was removed. Depending on the severity of the case there are several procedures which can be done or combined to achieve the desired functional and cosmetic outcome. For example skin from behind the ear, which very closely matches the texture of eyelid skin can be harvested and used to raise the eyelid. The mid-face can also be elevated by suspension sutures to raise the lower eyelid. The conjunctiva (the clear tissue on the inside of the eyelid) can be elevated by borrowing mucosal tissue from the mouth.

My eyelid crease is not symmetrical. Can this be corrected?

Yes. Many plastic surgeons perform the blepharoplasty procedure in the same manner for all patients. This is like visiting a hairstylist who can who can only cut your hair in one way. The unwanted result of asymmetric eyelid crease or contour is a result of non individualized eyelid surgery. Although a difficult problem to resolve, this can be reversed by carefully planned revisional surgery.

The sides of my eyelids look rounded after my cosmetic eyelid surgery. Can this be corrected?

The rounded corner of the eyelids after cosmetic eyelid surgery is an artificial “operated appearance”. Although subtle, the natural youthful eyelid is V-shaped at the corners. The rounded corners of the eyelids are not only a cosmetic problem for the patient, but they also can interfere with normal blink dynamics. The patient usually complains of tearing or dry eyes. This problem can be reversed by a special surgical technique on an outpatient basis.

Words cannot express how thankful and appreciative I am to have found you. I am deeply grateful for you, for your generosity and caring nature as pertaining to my medical condition. As you know, I was apprehensive about having further surgery, but you are and have been reassuring and confident in the type of procedure you would perform in order to fix my eyelid from the beginning. The fact that you are not pushy and gave me the time and space to make the decision on my own allowed me to prepare myself mentally and emotionally, that really made a difference. Besides from that, your continuous generosity made me confident that you were the right doctor for the task at hand. You will never know how appreciative I am of that. I would also like to let you know how pleased I am with the results of the surgery. I have not felt this comfortable in years. My parents are also very grateful since this was my 14th surgery. You have a true gift. Thank you again for your patience, time, concern, and overall care. I pray that God continues to give you strength to help people who truly need life-changing medical procedures.

Dr. Parsa is an amazing doctor. Warm and very caring. I had my eyes done a couple years ago and I couldn't be happier. Dr. Parsa likes to take the conservative approach which I greatly appreciate in a doctor when it comes to cosmetic surgery. I also go to Dr. Parsa for Botox and he always knows just the right amount. The staff in Dr. Parsa's office are all terrific!
