Are my Asian eyelids still fixable after multiple procedures?
Revision patient eyelid surgery
#1 repair the ptosis
#2 possible fat grafting of the upper lid may be helpful in lowering the crease and creating a more useful fullness
#3 lower the crease itself at the time of the ptosis repair
I have had some revision cases come in from other parts of the world that were very bad and we were able to improve them but in many cases I had to do staged procedures or multiple procedures in order to help the patient reached her goal. Another thing you need to understand as that the quality of your skin, with what appears to be loose wrinkled skin along with a lot of elasticity, could limit her overall outcome.
