Will there be any scarring after eyelid retraction surgery?
Experienced oculoplastic surgeon Dr Nick Koutroumanos will employ an internal approach to address upper eyelid retraction, avoiding any incisions on the skin’s surface. This results in a shorter recovery period and no visible scarring.
For lower eyelid retraction, the internal approach is also favoured, except in cases of severe retraction due to previous poorly performed non-specialist aesthetic surgery, where excess skin removal may necessitate skin grafting.
Upon a thorough assessment of functionality, anatomy, and aesthetics, Dr Koutroumanos will explain the problem, the most appropriate treatment strategy, and what you can expect in terms of recovery and success rates.
