Eye Revision Surgery

The eyelids are incredibly thin and complex structures. A meticulous technique, together with aesthetic sensitivity, is required to achieve successful surgical outcome. The proportion of revision surgeries due to faulty outcomes is rather high, in as much as it is the most frequently performed surgery. Most revision surgeries are challenging, therefore requiring longer surgery time. It needs a high-degree of surgical techniques, and postoperative swelling tends to be longer. In an effort to attain satisfactory results from revision surgery, a surgeon must be familiar with the accurate anatomical structure of the eyelid.

Then, each layer of the recklessly-intermixed layers of the eyelid is separated one by one, and is readjusted so as to concur with the natural anatomical structure. Therefore, revision eye surgery is rather a complex surgery requiring one or more hours of operation time. 눈재수술
