Reconstructive Eyelid Surgery

Cosmetic procedures including blepharoplasty (plastic surgery for the eyelids) are designed to remove excess eyelid skin. Brow lifts and injectables also fall under oculofacial surgery, which is considered plastic surgery for the eye region.

Ptosis:

Droopy upper lids decreases peripheral vision superiorly

Ectropion:

Loose and sagging lower lids leads to irritation of the eye

Entropion:

Lower lid turns in and eyelashes rub on eye and cause irritation

Dermatochalasis:

Extra upper eyelid skin that causes hooding and decreased peripheral vision

Blocked tear ducts:

Tear ducts can become blocked and cause constant tearing, discharge and infections. Surgery can open up or bypass tear duct to stop tearing

Eyelid skin lesions:

lesions can be benign or malignant skin cancers. Benign lesions can be removed with minor procedures. Sometimes skin cancers can grow faster and can invade more of the eyelid. Removing bigger lesions require reconstructive surgery to re create a new eyelid that can still protect the eye.
