Eyelid Revision After Blepharoplasty
Before you undergo a revision, however, I would discuss with you whether or not a brow repositioning may satisfy your outcome goals and allow you to have your extra eyelid skin get re-draped when the brow gets repositioned into a more youthful position. The key thing is not to remove too much skin at this point as you may have difficulty closing your eyes appropriately. The assessment by a board certified plastic surgeon is key here.
Not a problem.....you can easily have the excess skin removed anytime you want with no bad effects on the prior ptosis surgery. Be sure to diagnose the problem correctly and remove ONLY excess skin in the proper amount to allow good closure of the eyelid when laying down
If you have excess skin after the ptosis repair, you should be able to excise this.

Upper eyelid revision
If there is still excess skin present on your upper eyelid after ptosis surgery, there is no harm in removing some of the excess skin later to make it look better. It is important not to remove too much skin but an experienced blepharoplasty surgeon should have no problem with this.
