With any cosmetic procedure, having the results that you want is absolutely vital to feeling your best. That is why we are proud to offer patients revision ptosis repair in Austin. If your previous surgeon did not deliver the results you expected, Dr. Shah Vira is with Texas Neuro Eye & Plastic Surgery here to help you unlock the results you wanted for a vibrant, rejuvenated look.
What Is Revision Ptosis Surgery?
Also called revisional droopy eyelid surgery, this procedure is designed for patients who have already had a previous ptosis surgery. Usually, it is for patients who did not get the results they expected from their first procedure or want to improve fading results. This procedure focuses on addressing any concerns you have with your previous surgery and bring out out stunning results.
For revision surgery, you will want a surgeon with extensive experience performing this specific procedure. Successful revision requires a combination of aesthetic understanding and skill in making precise adjustments. Dr. Shah Vira also works on building a relationship with her patients, so she can understand exactly what they need for optimal results.
What Is the Procedure Like?
Revisional droopy eyelid surgery will be quite similar to your first ptosis surgery overall. The anesthesia will likely be the same as you used before, either local numbing or IV sedation. The duration can vary, depending on the changes and extent of your revision, but it usually still wraps up within about 1-2. It is also an outpatient procedure, so you will be able to go home the same day afterward. Depending on your needs, Dr. Shah Vira may make incredibly small changes or more significant ones, whatever is needed to correct your previous results and bring your eyelids into a rejuvenated position.

Is Revision Ptosis Surgery Right for Me?
If your eyelids are still droopy or you simply do not like your previous results, then revision ptosis surgery could be for you. We still recommend candidates be in good health, avoid smoking, and not have any current eye area infections. It is also important that enough time has passed since your previous procedure that all the swelling has gone down, so we can make accurate changes based on your first surgery’s final results.

Recovery & Results
Patients can expect a similar recovery period as with their first ptosis surgery. Revisional droopy eyelid surgery tends to have an initial downtime period about 1-2 weeks long, as you wait for swelling, bruising, and any pain to go away. After swelling fully goes down in several weeks, you will see your final results. With proper care, your results can last for years to a lifetime.
