Surgical Complications

Most surgical treatments are typically a straightforward, routine procedure, but on rare occasions we are approached by patients where surgery has achieved the desired results.

For patients who had high expectations of success after surgery, unfavourable results can be both physically and psychologically traumatic.



At Face Restoration, we understand, and our ophthalmic surgeons have a proven track record of performing successful revision surgeries, identifying the problem from a clinical perspective and using their empathy and expertise to correct it.

Symptoms vary from patient to patient, depending on the type of surgical complication that has occurred. The range of symptoms varies from displeasure with the post-surgery appearance to discomfort.

We believe that all symptoms are equally important, and we aim to offer comprehensive corrective treatment options.

When can I have revision surgery?

We recommend waiting at least six months before revisions following previous surgery. In some cases, swelling and recovery (especially around the eyes) can take several months.

What treatments/revisions are used?

Every revision surgery procedure is tailored to the patient’s specific needs. Our primary focus is on ethical restoration and rehabilitation using revision surgery and the Scars-Less™️ programme to improve eyelid position, scar revision, and volume restoration.

Since the effects of the previous eye or facial surgery can vary, we recommend a personalised consultation with our specialists to assess your individual needs and discuss the bespoke treatment plan available to restore your eye health and vision.

What are the most common reasons for revision surgery?

We see and treat an array of conditions that lead patients to us. Amongst the most common are:

Scarring from previous surgery
As ophthalmic specialists, we understand how sensitive skin can be. When the skin heals following surgery, it sometimes leads to visible, bumpy scarring. If this is the case, you may be a candidate for our experts for scar revision surgery and Scars-less™️ ️ programme. The Scars-less™️ programme is proven to have substantial benefits, including improved healing times and significantly reduced scarring.

Under corrected Surgery
Occasionally we see patients who have undergone surgery that did not achieve the desired results meaning they still have the original concerns unresolved.

Over corrected Surgery
Facial anatomy is very delicately balanced. Occasionally we see patients that have had surgery whereby an excess of body tissue has been removed, leaving patients with discomfort and underwhelming results.
