Ten years ago I suffered from poor night vision and had eyelid surgery by an eye...

Q:

Ten years ago I suffered from poor night vision and had eyelid surgery by an eye surgeon, not a plastic surgeon. He told me this wasn’t cosmetic surgery and I would need the surgery again in years to come. I now have scar tissue that is weighing down the corners of my eyes. I have red circled skin around the upper eyelids near my lashes. During the night when sleeping my eyes cake up in the corners. Can a good plastic surgeon correct this problem?

A:

It may be possible to address the problem you are experiencing.  If in fact you have excessive upper eyelid skin, this could result in such symptoms.  I would certainly recommend you have a consultation with a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon.
