Can I get DST double eyelid surgery after having had incisional blepharoplasty?

Revisional Double Eyelid Surgery
Hi there. Greetings from the UK. In short, yes you can go for a DST procedure. However like all DST procedures although the swelling would be minimal it is much less likely to be permanent with less controllability in comparison to an incisional technique. Personally I'd opt for a revisional incisional technique going for a higher crease with ablation of the lower natural creases and your suboptimal surgical crease. If skin fold length is an issue though, a DST may be slightly safer as there'd be less associated risk of further skin tension, but you'd still have multiple creases over the pretarsal platform which can look a bit messy.

Unfortunately DST will not resolve your issues.
You have upper eyelid ptosis and in addition, the platform skin and muscle was not well controlled by your prior surgery. This will require an open surgery to repair. You need a microptosis repair and and anchor blepharoplasty to control the eyelid platform skin. A detailed consultation will determine if you have a levator dehiscence in the eyelids which should also be repaired. This work can be done without hollowing your upper eyelid.
