The laser use in the surgery is NOT IMPORTANT.

No it is not possible to reverse this surgery.

Dear Eye

The use of the laser does not matter.  It is just one of many cutting instruments.  It is not possible to lower the crease once it is raise too high.  Many have tried.  A better approach is to raise the eyelid margin to decrease the gap between the eyelashes and the eyelid crease.  Only a personal examination with a knowledgeable Asian eyelid surgeon will be able to determine if your are a candidate for this type of revision.
