Question about webbing after eyelid surgery
I had upper eyelid surgery 3 months ago & went back in to see my plastic surgeon because webbing was around the inside corners of both eyelids. He told me to massage the webbing part and hopefully at some point in time it would go away. I thought it was strange that he couldn't give me a time frame about when the webbing might go away. Also it looks to me like he didn't remove enough skin on the outside corners of my upper lids. He said it probably was just swelling, but it looks to me like loose skin. When I asked him how much skin he removed from the upper lids he couldn't give me an answer to this. What do you think?

Webbing is very rare in upper lid blepheroplasty. It will require surgical correction.
Lateral hooding could be many things, droopy brow, too much skin or the combination. Get another opinion

Post a photo. But an injection of PRP might help vs a Z platy operation.

Webbing after Upper Blepharoplasty surgery  April 3, 2013 1:39 PM

Hi! Thank you for your question,

I am Dr. Speron, a proud member of both the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) and the American Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons (ASAPS). I am also certified with the American Board of Plastic Surgery.

Fortunately the webbing can be fixed. Webbing can usually be improved with a small soft tissue rearrangement. You can go visit a Plastic surgeon who specializes on eyelids and other surgeries around the eyes, just to have a different perspective on this situation as well. Have them examine you and discuss your options. It is also likely that this repair can be performed in the office under local anesthesia if you desire.

Here are some links for additional information and before and after pictures.


If you have any further questions, please feel free to call us at 847.696.9900.
Best of luck and have a great day!

It is difficult to assess your problem without photos. It is unlikely for things much more after 3 months from surgery. See an oculoplastic surgeon for evaluation.
