Second eyelid revision

Postby MsAnthrope » Sat, 31 Dec 2011 4:01 pm

I am looking for a surgeon to do my second eyelid revision.
My first surgery was done 10 years ago, by Dr Wong Saw Yeen. It was way too high and extremely unnatural.

I had it revised in November last year by Dr Kang in Korea, iou clinic.
However, now it's too low (almost non-existent) and it's a completely in-fold when I asked for an in-out fold. He told me prior to the surgery that if it was too low, he would be able to excise some skin, but now he says that nothing can be done.

I am hoping to raise the crease by about 1mm, so that my lashline is clearly visible and my medial region is more open.

Does anyone have any recommendations?
I would prefer a non-incisional surgery that's reversible / revisible, but a Singaporean doctor told me that non-incisional surgeries will leave me with four obvious knobs on my eye when I look down(!) How can that be acceptable?
But I am also open to an incisional surgery if that's the only option I have.

I hope someone can help me. Thanks.

Hello!

You may want to try IDEA Clinic, Korea, by Dr Kwon Seong-Il.
He is really good with the eyes.

Hi there,

I have done my eyes revised last summer in Korea. I first had my double eyelids with non-incision 5 years ago and the crease kinda dissappeared so I got the revision. I did the incisional method this time because i dont want to get it again in the future. My double eyelids are much clearer and thicker now as I wanted. There is slightly a redness around the crease but swelling and bruises are all gone. I normally take time to get healed so i guess the redness will go away gradually. I did my surgery at Wonjin plastic surgery clinic because my korean friend recommend me to do it there as it is really popular among the locals and I didnt want to get ripped off because i heard that many clinics they rip off foreign patients.

Like you I did mine years ago in Singapore. The creases were high but I like them. Then some months ago, I went to Korea to improve them because of extra loose skin and the docs there commented that my creases were high. Stupid as I was since I was there, I let one of them revise because of the loose skin and I reminded the doc that I wanted high creases but lo and behold, now the creases are so low that I will need to revise to have them higher. In my opinion, don't go to Korea because they like low creases! I am now looking intoTaiwan docs to revise the creases so that they are higher like my former creases, like Angelababy's. I think their sense of nice eyes are not the same as mine.

Ya, a little lower, but obviously that is what they say is nice but I prefer high creases which some say is unnatural. But then my siblings have natural high creases so I want to be the same, in order not to be outcast, hahahah. I don't want to recommend you my clinic because they don't reply to my email after op!!! Even though their service was nice when I was there. The docs were nice too. Better get a clinic that can speak English or offer good post-op service, just in case.

Hey ppl, I'm considering my second eyelid revision as well as the recent one did not address my problems completely. The fold is still sausage thick and scar is obvious. I'm thinking dr Kang from IOU, anyone going Korea in may? We could share cost!

I had the revisional double eyelid surgery in seoul at grand with Dr. Park 3 months ago. my eyelids were very thick and the crease was still very obvious after 1 yr. Dr. Park used to be a plastic surgeon in NY before. he spoke fluent english and was so kind during the whole process. try to email grand! its always good to visit several clinics before making a decision.

Double Eyelid Surgery Revision

Hi there, I just had my 1st double eyelid and rhino surgeries about a month ago. I think both eyes have completely de-swelled. In addition to creating a more obvious double eyelid, I had also wanted to have excess folds of skins removed and correct the uneven eye problem coz my left eye is smaller than the right due to more protrusion on the right. The doctor in Taiwan did a great job in making both eyes equal in size but now my eyes are not showing the same amount of pupils! And the creases appeared uneven although at the time of surgery, they were cut the same size. Although the right eye is a bit swollen, I can already tell a revision is needed. But because I opted for the incision method instead of suture, I don't know if a revision is possible especially now I want a higher crease. Can you forward Dr Park's contact info?. Someone also mentioned Dr Kang from IOU. Have you considered going to Taiwan for revision coz I heard Dr Chen from Regent is quote good. I don't mind going with someone so we share accommodation, et. al. We could also do some travelling together but it will have to be in the fall or winter/2012. Let me know what your thoughts are. Thanks

Hi, Terrie35, Have you done your revision? I just gotr my first double eyelid done less than 30 days ago but both eyes appear uneven now both in creases and in pupil size. I don't think its the doctor's fault because my eyes were uneven to begin with and he managed to fix most problems but my right eye is naturally more swollen than the right. I had thought about going back to my doctor for revision but eye is not his expertise. I am considering Korea or Taiwan for the revision but because I used the incision method and the creases are quite low, not sure if a revision to raise the creases is possible. Can you share your docs research with me and maybe we can plan something together for this fall or winter?!

Hi, so sorry for this late reply as I was away so was unable to come to the forum. No, I haven't done any revision as I would not be able to take leave yet. Yes, I want to revise to have a higher crease but I think korean docs are not able to do that so I am leaning more to Taiwan.
