Q: What Can I Do to Lessen Scars After Blepharoplasty? I had upper & lower bleph done 18 months ago. I am happy with lower as my bags are gone (am 49 years old & they were aging me more). I am very unhappy with the results of my upper as I have a visible indented scar that extends beyond the eyelid crease. In almost all lighting, the scar is visible as it extends approx 1/4 inch and is quite wide. On the other side, it is smaller but is white. Even make-up cannot hide these scars. I feel that people look at them instead of giving me eye contact. I have to style my hair to conceal these scars. I usually pull my hair back or away from my face but now they must be like curtains hiding these scars. Please advise if anything can be done to lessen the scars. Thanks. A: It sounds like a small revision of the lateral part of the eyelid incision may help to make the scar cleaner and without the depression. Q: Eyelids Misaligned After Lower Blepharoplasty.. Lower Lid Flopping? Lower eyelid flopped away from eyeball, and upper lid pulled away from eyeball after a lower blepharoplasty. 1 month post op now. This was present in recovery room. No change since then. I don’t think its an ectropion because lower lid goes back in position when pushed on in corner if you keep your finger holding it. Don’t have to pull up on it. Lower lid rim in front of upper lid rim. It is more misaligned than ectropic, even though it hangs. I need corrective measures now. Too Soon? Earliest ? A: It’s difficult to give advise without having pictures. It seems that significant canthal laxity. You should speak with your surgeon to get his opinion. If you are not satisfied with his answer, you may consider speaking with an oculoplastuc surgeon. Q: Corrective Measures for Eyelid Closure Problems After Blepharoplasty? I had upper and lower blepharoplasty 2 years ago and since then, I have aching eyes and problems with closing them fully. I can get them closed maybe at 95%, but they still let in crack of light. At night time it seems my eyes tighten, and I find I need more and more sleep to feel rested. Are there any options to correct this problem? Thank you. A: The problem you describe seems to be due to excessive eyelid skin being removed. The surgical option involves replacing some of that skin with a skin graft. A temporary measure may be to place botox on your forehead to drop your brows a little. This may give you that 5% back for a temporary time.
