Some people have already received eyelid surgery, but are unsatisfied because their surgery went wrong. In those cases of eyelids are unraveled, uneven, or unnatural. It is important to accurately diagnose what went wrong in the first procedure so that there would not be a need for a second surgery. Moreover, in cases of revisions, since tissues are already damaged from the first surgery, corrections are difficult to be made. Thus, it is important to receive surgery from highly experienced plastic surgery specialist.
At JW Anesthetic Hospital, plastic Surgeons are recognized in the medical community as the super specialists of eyelid surgery, who specialize in cosmetic eyelid surgery, eyelid reconstruction and cosmetic surgery revision procedures.

1. Revision Lower Blepharoplasty
If only fat removal or repositioning is conducted during the first operation, it may seem okay right after the operation, but the skin under the eyes will start sagging soon over time.
2. Revision canthoplasty
If you are unsatisfied with the results of an epicanthoplasty or a lateral canthoplasty or if the Larcrimal lakes (triangular space at the medial angle of the eye, where the tears collect) are overly exposed, we can correct the results through revision canthoplasty.
STEP 01. Build a V-Y advancement flap on the inner canthus.
STEP 02. Close the V-Y advancement flap
STEP 03. Design a Z-plasty.
STEP 04. Perform a Z-plasty.
Tip – Why should a Z-plasty be performed?
The most common problem that may occur after revision canthoplasty is that the shape of the inner canthus may change to a U-shape. A Z-plasty can prevent potential transformation that may occur after surgery using a triangular flap, and form the inner canthus into a beautiful shape.
3. Revision Lateral Canthoplasty
If the mucosa is overly exposed, the location of the lower eyelids have changed, a patient experiences ectropion (lower eyelid turns outwards), or the shape of the outer corners of the eyes have changed to the shape of webbed feet, such problems can be resolved through revision lateral canthoplasty.
STEP 01. Make an incision on the scar of the previous lateral canthoplasty and the exposed mucosa.
STEP 02. If a patient experiences ectropion (lower eyelid turns outwards) due to the relocation of the lower eyelids, conduct aesthetic canthal suspension surgery to set the outer corners of the eyes back in their original location.
STEP 03. Stitch the incision by layer, considering the original structure of the outer corners of the eyes.
