Then, it is preferable for you to go for entropion or ectropion eyelid surgery depending on the condition of eyelid turning inwards or outwards.
Entropion and ectropion eyelid surgeries correct the eyelid malposition caused by weakness of the muscles due to aging, birth defects or medical diseases and provides comfort to your eyes.
Entropion and ectropion are two types of eyelid malpositions that affect the health of the eyes. Entropion is the turning in of the eyelid, which cause the eyelashes to rub against the cornea and conjunctiva. It causes irritation, redness and pain in eyes and also impairs vision. Ectropion is the condition in which the eyelid (usually lower) is turned outward and displaced away from the eye. In severe ectropion, the entire length of the eyelid is turned out. This causes exposure of the white area of the eye (sclera), leading to dryness and inflammation. In both the eyelid malpositions, drainage of tears is also affected, leading to watering from the eyes. Eyelid surgery is usually the solution to these malpositions in which eyelids are tightened by removing extra skin.
Before surgery, the patient is given local anesthetic with or without intravenous sedation. Surgery depends on the cause for the eyelid malposition. If ectropion is due to aging and there are lax eyelid tissues (also called involutional ectropion), then eyelids are shortened and tightened by an incision on the outside corner of the eyelid, and reattaching it to the underlying tissue and upper eyelid (A surgery called the lateral tarsal strip).
After surgery, patients get swelling, redness and bruising around the eye, but recovery is very easy. The patient needs to wear an eye patch for 24 hours. Antibiotic ointments and cold compresses are given to patient periodically for 12 hours to reduce swelling and bruising. Stitches are removed in about a week and patients recover completely in about 2 weeks.
Eyes are the most striking features of our faces. Any difficulty in seeing almost always translates to a great amount of physical discomfort as well as mental anxiety. Cosmetic surgery is a way to overcome malformations and imperfections of the eyelids. Eyelid malposition surgery is a type of reconstructive cosmetic surgery which can correct the position of your eyelids and restore your vision to normal.
Undergoing surgery is a big decision and naturally, you must be anxious to find out about the cost of eyelid malposition surgery. The cost of the reconstructive surgery depends on the extent of malposition, and the choice of surgeon and clinic.
