Revision for Ectropion of Upper Eyelid After Blepharoplasty?
I had double eyelid surgery three weeks ago. While my right eye is looking fine, the rim of my upper left eyelid has been left turned outward. I believe the medical term is "ectropion" and it is only common on the lower eyelid. I suspect this is the result of the crease being embedded too deeply.
My surgeon insists it's only a minor 'asymmetry' and has advised against future revisioning. I feel like he's downplaying a bad result as it's glaringly obvious when I look in the mirror. Can this be corrected/improved with further surgery?
