How can I repair thick eyelid surgery scars from a blepharoplasty?

A blepharoplasty procedure is designed to improve the upper and lower eyelid skin and restore natural contours to the face and periocular areas.  During an upper eyelid surgery, meticulous placement of sutures is performed in order to minimize surgical scarring and maximize time of recovery.  In a very small subset of patients, reaction to the suture material or a genetic fibroblast hyperactivity may lead to thickened scars along the incision line.  Although this is rare there are some options in order to improve the condition and maximize your recovery after eyelid surgery.  The formation of thickened eyelid scars is usually an unpredictable and rear phenomenon usually takes a dedicated approach to scar revision.  Because the upper eyelid are a dynamic area of the body, in few cases there are may be the development of a hyperstimulated and overactive scar response.
