Hi, I had blepharoplasty done to my upper eyelids two years ago and still have scars (white lines) like the third example (right hand side) in the submitted picture. I was wondering: why did I get so much scarring? and what do I do to improve it? since the first operation was very conservative I was considering having a second blepharoplasty, what should I do to avoid those scars if I do have it done? thank you
Thank you for your question about your blepharoplasty scar.
- The blepharoplasty scar on the right is more visible than two on the left because the person has darker skin and because the stitches left scar cross hatches.
- After a blepharoplasty revision, your scar will still be white.
- If you eyes have enough loose skin, the blepharoplasty lscar can be improved by removing the cross-hatched scar. This will leave a thin white line. This blepharoplasty revision is done under magnification using subcuticular sutures and removing any outside sutures in 3 days. Hope this helps. Best wishes.
Fine Scar after Upper Eyelid Surgery
A fine scar after upper eyelid surgery is all you can attain. I would not recommend a revision for the scar.

You listen to Dr Mayer, he is so correct! Best to consider the risk/benefit ratios before considering additional surgery

Upper eyelid scar after blepharoplasty that you have will not be improved with a revision. Cover up makeup will do the trick.
