Hi Dr. lam!
I recently had surgery in asia and it went just fine,altho the lids are ''acceptable'' and there were no complications, the lids are way lower than i expected and i'm only less than a month post-op, meaning after 1 year they will be even lower, on top of that my lids have more of a tapered look intead of a parallel one (mind u i had epi as well and he did it real good with the new method ''magic epi").
I received a partial incision and was wondering what ur opinion on partial incision is? My doctor said he gave me partial because i had a good skin texture (I have small pores, and medium skin meaning it's not thick or thin, and i don't have a lot of fat in my eyelids, just enough) so the partial would be permanent on me.
I know most doctors would rather wait 6 months or so before they revise anything and i was wondering why it is that you have to wait that long? besides the fact that the final result don't come till after but if i already don't like the height at 1 month post op- why wait?
Are revision blephs normally advised AGAINST? if so, why? and will it make any difference in healing if i get it done 1 month post-op or 1 year post op?
Will healing time take longer after 2nd bleph and what will happen to the partial scar i already have (10mm above my lashes) on both lids if i decide to go for a higher crease meaning another incision has to be made?
Are more complications and risks usually involved in bleph revisions than in primary ones?
Lastly, maybe the reason why i didn't get the parallel look even though i had a epi on the inner corners is because i only had a partial incision instead of a full one that would 100% guarantee a steady line right across?
I know i ask a lot of questions and i thank you for always answering them every time, but i trust your opinion and knowledge and that is why i'm asking u (altho i already emailed my doctor overseas). My doctor is very skilled, but he kind of contradicted himself like in the office he used the instrument to prop up my eyelid and said ''i can make ur eyes look like this with 10mm'', 1 month post-op and my eyelids are lower htan that..
I'm only in a rush to get a revision because i have a gig this summer and cannot wait any longer so the sooner the more healing time i have before the shoot,
