There is a good number of patients who seek Dr. Abboud’s expertise to revise poor outcomes of previous eyelid surgery. Lower eyelid blepharoplasty, when performed aggressively and without proper eyelid support, can cause retraction (pulled down) or ectropion (outward turning) of the lower eyelids with loss of normal eye shape (sad/wide-eyed appearance), "scleral show" (white area of the eye showing underneath the pupils), loss of confidence, and inability to close the eyes.

Most often with aggressive surgery, too much tissue is removed. As such, revision surgery typically requires adding tissue grafts to replace the lost tissue. Oftentimes, Dr. Abboud is able to revise the lower eyelid surgery with an incision hidden inside the eyelids, and repair the eyelid retraction with a midface lift and a lateral canthoplasty to restore the patient’s nature eye shape and confidence, and to optimize eyelid closure.

While eyelid function and appearance of the eyes can be restored with revision surgery, the key to preventing unsatisfactory results is to seek an oculofacial surgeon specialized in plastic surgery of the eyelids and the periocular region.
