Upper Eyelid Surgery

Blepharoplasty, also known as eyelid surgery or an eyelid lift, is a surgical procedure that improves the appearance of the eyelids. It can rejuvenate puffy, sagging, drooping or tired-looking eyes by tightening muscles and tissue or removing excess fat and skin from the upper and/or lower eyelids. The eyelid, because its skin is much thinner than that in other parts of the face, is often one of the first facial areas to exhibit signs of aging. Blepharoplasty is one of the most commonly performed facial plastic surgery procedures. The popularity of this procedure reflects the importance of the eyes in perfecting overall appearance.

Ptosis Repair

Ptosis is the drooping of the upper eyelid. While ptosis is usually the result of aging, some people develop ptosis after eye surgery or an injury, and sometimes the condition is congenital. Because ptosis may be present due to serious causes, patients with this disorder should be checked by a medical professional to determine whether treatment is necessary, and if so, what kind.

Revision Ptosis Repair

After undergoing an eyelid surgery, or blepharoplasty, if the results are not up to the patients expectations, it can be disappointing. It is always prudent to wait a few months, after the procedure, to determine how the eyes will truly look once the swelling has gone down and healing has taken place. If a patient is still not satisfied at that point, however, a consultation can help them explore their options for an eyelid revision procedure.

Entropion Repair

Entropion is an eye condition where the eyelid turns inward. Typically entropion occurs on the lower eyelid where the skin and lashes rub painfully against the cornea. This condition may cause the lid to either turn in constantly or only at times when the eyes are closed tightly.

Ectropion Repair

Ectropion is an eye condition in which the eyelid turns outward. It typically affects the lower eyelid, exposing the inner lid in either one section of eye or across the entire lid. Ectropion prevents tears from draining from the eye correctly, resulting in irritation. It usually occurs in older adults as a result of the aging process, during which muscles, tendons and connective tissue around the eyes progressively weaken. Those who have had trauma to the face or eyes are at greater risk of developing ectropion.

Eyelid Cancer Surgery

Mohs micrographic surgery is a safe and effective treatment for skin cancer. During Mohs surgery, cancerous tissue is removed in small sections. Both the visible tumor and any “roots” extending beneath the surface of the skin are excised. Because it may be necessary to remove many layers of skin to reach these roots, large wounds or scars, often in prominent areas, can be left behind. In many cases, however, reconstructive plastic surgery can be performed to repair the wound and improve the skin’s appearance.

Eyelid Retraction Repair

An eyelid retraction is another form of eyelid malpositioning, which can affect either the upper or lower eyelid or both eyelids. Eyelid retraction occurs when the eyelid pulls away from the eye.
