Second Surgery to Correct -New Haven, CT

My lower lids were droopy post eyelid surgery from April 1. Developed from excessive swelling caused scaring under the lid. not the plastic surgeons fault. Lived through a horrible 5 months. Looked depressed, old and sickly. Waiting until all swelling was gone and finally went on the 13th for a corrective procedure (my plastic surgeon irecommended another doctor to address the problem and insured no additional cost. . Surgery went well, no complications, so far it all looks good and I'm getting compliments. Now I'm hearing how bad I looked before.
Eye specialist did the operation with my plastic Surgen assisting. Again, at this point I'm very happy. Stitches come out Thursday.

Additional surgery

Went back for an additional surgery as the lower lids were still drooping. This recent surgery correct the issue, at no additional charge. I had a lot of elasticity in my lower lid, which had to be aggressively addressed in order to correct. Today, I am totally satisfied by both the. Results and the Doctors staying on this case until it was resolved.

I don't think so, this issue was finally resolved by shortening the length of the lower lid. There is no way to know this issue will arise until after the swelling , the swelling was the one thing that needed to be aggressively address which it was not on the first surgery. It has taken a while, but I have the results I wished for. I'm thankful my Doctors didn't give up on getting this resolved. Rare in this field.

If I may ask, how much was your lower eye lid surgery? I also live in CT. Mine was done out of the country and am not very happy with results after almost 2 years of it...

I think i would be the surgeon's fault. Excessive scarring is not a normal result of the eye surgery.

wow, but the before picture looks like they pulled/took too much skins and your eye lids were pulled down.

Your second surgery looks good so far. What method did your doctor use on the second surgery -- skin graft or cantoplasty or other method?
