    What Is Revision Blepharoplasty?

    Revision blepharoplasty is a procedure aimed at enhancing the appearance of your eyelids. It’s a highly specialized cosmetic surgery, often required when outcomes aren’t what you expected when you had your first eyelid surgery. It’s also possible that you had unexpected problems arise after your procedure. Revision blepharoplasty eyelid surgery refers to a repeat operation to address your issues. In many cases, revision eyelid surgery is far more complex than initial eyelid surgery.

    This complexity is due to several factors, including:

    It’s also possible that not everything can be fixed in one session. Some people may need staged revisions and special treatment to avoid scarring after revision surgery. That’s why you need a skilled cosmetic surgeon like Dr. David Shokrian and his talented team of plastic surgeons at Millennial Plastic Surgery in New York City. They have years of experience performing not only blepharoplasty, but all the cosmetic procedures for your face, body and breasts.

    How Long Does Revision Blepharoplasty Recovery Take?

    The duration of your recovery from revision surgery on your eyelids depends on your healing process, the intricacy of the operation and how well you follow post-op instructions.

    Your doctor’s post-op instructions may include:

    During your follow-up visits, your doctor advises you on when you can resume exercise and strenuous activities. It’s usually recommended that you wait a couple weeks. To prevent the need for further revisions, keep all follow-up appointments so your NYC doctor can monitor your healing.

    What’s the Typical Cost of Revision Eyelid Surgery in NYC?

    Your revision eyelid surgery costs usually run about the same as double eyelid surgery, between $3,000 and $12,000. Your final revision blepharoplasty cost in NYC takes into account many factors, from the cost of anesthesia to the difficulty of the procedure. Of course, your cost increases if you’re having any complementary procedures done at the same time. Insurance may cover the revision surgery if you’re having it done to address medical problems like pain and vision limitations.

    You can save revision eyelid surgery costs when the procedure is done right the first time. While anatomical and medical issues can arise to diminish the success of your eyelid surgery, you can expect the best eyelid surgery results and benefits when you rely on the experienced cosmetic surgery team in New York City at Millennial Plastic Surgery.
