Scar Revision

Embrace Confidence With Scar Revision.

The journey to smoother, more confident skin begins at Linder, MD. Patients occasionally encounter adverse effects, such as difficulty in closing the eyelids, ptosis (drooping eyelids), eyelid margin notches, and misdirected lashes due to scarring. With the expertise of eye plastic surgery, many of these scar-related problems can be effectively corrected or improved.

While some procedures can be conveniently performed in the office, more complex cases are seamlessly managed in the operating room as outpatient procedures. Book a consultation, and let us guide you through the path to scar resolution and rediscover the beauty and functionality of your eyes.

What it is

Scar revision for the eyes is a specialized procedure aimed at improving the appearance of scars around the eye area. Whether caused by injury, surgery, or other factors, these scars can be a source of self-consciousness and affect one’s confidence.

At Linder MD, we understand the impact that scars can have on your self-esteem. Dr. Linder combines his expertise with a compassionate approach to ensure that you receive the highest quality care throughout your scar revision journey.

How it works

During scar revision for the eyes, a skilled surgeon carefully evaluates the scar tissue and develops a personalized treatment plan to minimize its visibility. This may involve techniques such as surgical excision, laser resurfacing, dermal fillers, or a combination of approaches.

The goal of scar revision is to create a more harmonious and natural-looking result, blending the scar into the surrounding skin and enhancing the overall aesthetics of the eye area. By reducing the prominence of the scar, the procedure aims to improve both the physical appearance and the individual’s emotional well-being.

Frequently Asked Questions

Double Eyelid Surgery FAQ

+ - Is scar revision for the eyes a painful procedure?

Your comfort is a top priority during scar revision for the eyes. The procedure is performed under local anesthesia to minimize any discomfort. We will ensure that you are comfortable throughout the process.

+ - How long do the results of scar revision for the eyes last?

The results of scar revision can be long-lasting. However, it's important to note that individual circumstances may vary. Following post-operative instructions, maintaining a healthy lifestyle, and protecting your skin from sun damage can help ensure the longevity of the results.

+ - What can I expect during recovery and healing?

Recovery periods for eyelid surgeries can vary depending on the extent of the procedure. However, most patients are back to their normal activities within one week.

Side effects can vary from patient to patient. Most patients experience mild to moderate swelling for three to four days following their procedure and may be bruised for up to two weeks. Redness and bruising at the incision site are also common, as is short term blurred vision, watery eyes, light sensitivity or dryness. Patients can use cold compresses and keep their head elevated after surgery to help alleviate some of the bruising and swelling. Dr. Linder provides additional post-op instructions prior to surgery.

Sutures are removed one week after your surgery and Dr. Linder usually likes to see you again one month after surgery. Additional visits may be scheduled as needed.

+ - Can I drive myself home after surgery?

No. Regardless of the procedure, Dr. Linder and the surgical facility will only release patients to a friend, relative, or other designated driver. This person is required to drive you to surgery, wait for you in the waiting room, and then drive you home. Even if you feel well enough to drive, taking precautions is important, especially during the first few days after your surgery.

+ - Will insurance cover my eyelid surgery?

Insurance will cover your surgery only if there is significant visual obstruction due to eyelid drooping. If your eyelid drooping is to a degree where insurance may cover the procedure, we will do the appropriate tests to prove medical necessity and submit the information to your insurance company and try to get the procedure approved for you. If your eyelids are not drooping to the point where they affect your vision, your surgery will be considered a cosmetic procedure and Dr. Linder will discuss self-pay pricing with you. Lower eyelid sagging and fat pouches are never covered by insurance and will be performed as a cosmetic procedure. Although we do not accept payment plans for our services, you can go to www.carecredit.com to apply for a healthcare credit card. You will pay us with your Care Credit card prior to your service and then pay your Care Credit bill monthly as you like.

+ - Is there anything I should do prior to surgery?

On the day of your surgery, you must do two important things. 1.) Do not eat or drink 8 hours prior to your surgery, and 2.) Arrange transportation to and from your surgery. Your transportation must be with you at check-in, wait for you in the waiting room during your procedure, then drive you home.

Five to seven days prior to surgery you need to stop taking any aspirin products and blood thinners. If you are not on a prescription blood thinner you just make sure you don't take any products with aspirin in them. (Aspirin, Alleve, Ibuprofen, BC Powder, Fish Oil, etc. Tylenol/acetaminophen products are OK.)

If you are on prescription blood thinners, you will need a cardio clearance from the doctor who prescribes them stating that they approve you to quit the medicine five days prior to surgery or however many days they feel you are safe to be off of the medicine. Our office helps you with this. Make sure to let us know which blood thinner you take and what doctor prescribes them.
