Cosmetic surgery on the eyelids is usually gratifying for the patient and the surgeon, especially on the upper eyelids. Like any procedure, there are times when blepharoplasty does not go as planned or does not yield the desired satisfaction for the patient. A botched eyelid surgery, where the surgeon has actually done something wrong, is rare but would also be an indication for revision blepharoplasty.
Of course there are patients who don’t receive the benefit they were looking for from a facelift (either because they had unreasonable expectations or the surgeon promised more than was possible) and there are patients who experience surgical complications, but a truly “botched” procedure where the surgeon did something incompetent is pretty rare. In this piece we’ll explore the different issues that might make a facelift patient unhappy including situations where the surgeon may have done too much or too little. Finally, facelifts don’t last forever so some patients may be unhappy because the beneficial effects from a facelift are starting to loosen up and disappear.
A successful rhinoplasty or nose job can provide enormous benefit to your appearance and confidence. But sometimes the outcome of a rhinoplasty is unsatisfactory. In many cases there is no real complication except that the aesthetic result is not what the patient was hoping for. It is also important to remember that even in experienced hands, the long term results of rhinoplasty are not totally predictable. Luckily, revision rhinoplasty may help you.
Do you notice excess skin in the upper eyelids so your eyelid skin is literally resting on your eyelashes!? Or do you have sagging upper eyelids so the edge of the upper lid where the lashes emerge is covering part of your pupil?
You might benefit from an upper lid lift (blepharoplasty) or you might need to raise the margin of your eyelid so you can see better, or you might need both!
Do your eyes look or feel weird after blepharoplasty (cosmetic eyelid surgery)? An eyelid lift or blepharoplasty can rejuvenate your appearance. However, the eyelids are very delicate and complications from eyelid surgery are often difficult to repair. When can revision blepharoplasty be performed? How does surgery on the upper eyelids differ from surgery on the lower eyelids?
Gravity, sun damage and unfavorable genetics can alter your forehead and brow and make your face look serious, angry and/or tired. Fortunately, several surgical procedures are available to address these changes and rejuvenate the upper face.
Most people think that the brow inevitably falls with age. The truth is that the inner half of the brow usually does not drop, and can even get higher with age. The outer half of the brow definitely falls with age and the change in shape that results from the outer brow falling more than the inner brow, results in a tired, less attractive brow shape. So it’s really the SHAPE of the brow that is more important than the HEIGHT.
In addition, the brow deflates and gets flatter to the skull (the same way other parts of our bodies deflate) and this removes youthful curvature and contour from the face.
