Surgical procedures cannot be “reversed.” However, in many cases revision surgery can be done to fix results that the patient is unhappy with. However, I suggest to wait until your eyes are fully healed before considering revision surgery. Your eyelids are still undergoing changes and it is possible that you will be happier with your results once the incisions have fully healed and the swelling has resolved. Two weeks post-surgery is too early to see final results from a blepharoplasty. I hope this helps.
An upper Blepharoplasty requires removal of skin and fat. You can not undo this unless you have a skin graft placed. Give yourself some time to heal and get used to the new look. You have swelling which needs to resolve before rending judgement on your result.
Without photos it is difficult to comment however, an upper blepharoplasty cannot be reversed. It is too early to make decision about your result since you need to heal which will take several months to complete. I would suggest speaking with your surgeon about your concerns.
Best of luck,

My first instinct is to tell you, "no, it can't be reversed". My second thought is to tell you, "you need to wait 6 months, then be evaluated by a board certified plastic surgeon to evaluate your situation and see what can be done".
But, I have been in practice 20 years and I have seen situations where early intervention can save everyone a lot of unnecessary stress and actually allow a better result in the end, even if further modifications are necessary. While this is not the norm, it occurs often enough to merit an urgent comprehensive evaluation by someone with much experience and expertise in this area.
In a procedures done to deepen the eyelid fold the procedure may be partially reversed. But in the typical procedure nothing can be reversed. Reconstructive procedures for functional problems can be done once everything has healed but those are not "reversing" the procedure. Without more information nothing more can be said.
Dear sadey, An upper lid blepharoplasty procedure can not be reversed. If a surgeon has removed to much skin and there are closure issues then reconstruction can be performed however this does not sound like your case. I would suggest at this time that you speak with your surgeon regarding your concerns so he/she can hold your hands through this recovery time and then make an informed decision after you have allowed some healing time. Best regards, Michael V. Elam, M. D.
Blepharoplasty cannot be reversed but if excessive skin has been excised, it can be reconstructed. As far your concern, it is too early to make decision about your result since you need to heal which will take several months to complete. Best
Cannot redo an upper eyelid bleph; you will have to be patient and allow your skin to stretch out on its own. Please see examples of upper eyleid bleph below.
Without at least preop and postop photos it is not possible to comment on your situation. But a blepharoplasty of the upper lids involves removing skin, so to undo it would require adding skin, thus a skin graft. It is doable but not with good results.
Given you are so early in the recovery and healing phase, I would advise you to be patient and wait things out. It will really be at least 6 weeks if not 4 months before you can appreciate your results. At first and early on it can be somewhat daunting, therefore be patient and allow things to settle to really appreciate your results.
If after 4 months you are unhappy with your results, I would then discuss with your plastic surgeon what can be done to improve things.
