When Can a Revision Surgery Be Done for Asymmetric Eyelids After a Non Incisional Eyelid Surgery

Hi! I just had a non incisional eyelid ( suture method) surgery done 16 days ago. I found that my eyelid appears asymmetrical though the swelling of my eyelid have resolved. My left eyelid crease appears to be higher than my right eyelid. I wonder when can I have a revision surgery done after a non incisional eyelid surgery ? If a revision surgery to be done , can a suture method still be used to correct the asymmetry ? Thanks !

Ideally you will wait 4 to 6 months.

Do your home work.  It is bad when nonsuture methods yield a suboptimal result.  It is far worse when this occurs with surgery.

It is much too soon to judge your results.  Your crease may change for the better, or the sutures may loosen and get worse.Wait at least a 2-3 months.
