Epicanthoplasty revision surgery is for people who want to restore their inner corner of their eyes from previous surgery. Previous surgeon may have taken the skin out in excess, which then shows too much of sclera. This ultimately results in very unnatural look. There are few telltale signs that call for epicanthoplasty revision surgery.
First, the revision epicanthoplasty is performed to close the inner corner while removing the Mongolian fold. Mongolian fold is a wrinkle that extends downward at an angle that starts from the inner corner. Typically, it is widely understood that to remove the Mongolian fold, inner corner should be more opened rather than closed. However, there are cases where Mongolian fold is still present coupled with excess showing of sclera. The revision surgery will remove the fold, while closing the opening.
Second, after previous epicanthoplasty, the inner corner of the eye is too caved or depressed with noticeable scarring. In this case, revision surgeon will design a new incision site so that the scar will be hidden.
It is imperative to choose a skillful surgeon carefully, especially for the revision surgery. The outcome will be satisfactory, and patients will look more natural.
