Eyelid Surgery

What types of eyelid conditions require surgical intervention?

There are a number of eyelid conditions that can be corrected through surgery. 

Entropion

This occurs when your eyelid begins to turn inward toward your eyeball. It can happen to upper and lower eyelids, but is most common in the lower lid. It can develop in one or both eyes. This can cause your skin and eyelashes to rub against your cornea, which can be extremely uncomfortable. 

Ectropion

This occurs when your eyelid begins to turn outward and away from your eyeball. Excess tearing, irritation, dry eye, and blurry vision can follow. This condition is most common in the lower eyelid, but can also occur in the upper lid of one or both eyes. 

Eyelid retraction

This occurs when the position of the edge of your eyelid changes, causing the area where your upper and lower lids meet to shift in a higher or lower position. Because your lids don’t close properly, a small margin of white (sclera) shows. This can make it difficult to properly close your eyes, and can also lead to chronic dry eye. 

These are just a few of the conditions that can be treated through eyelid surgery. 

Can eyelid surgery improve the appearance of my eyelids?

Over time your eyelid skin and the underlying tissues can change, leaving you with sagging skin, puffiness, and bags under your eyes. Eyelid surgery is a great tool to address these changes and can help you feel great about your appearance. 

Today’s eyelid procedures have advanced far beyond what was available just a few short years ago. Dr. Sohrab has the skill and experience to surgically alter your eyelid skin, fat deposits, and muscle connections to restore optimal eyelid contouring. 

Many men and women choose to have a brow or forehead lift performed at the same time as their eyelid surgery. Combining procedures means just one round of anesthesia and one recovery process. 

It’s important to note that surgery can improve the contouring of your eye area, but does nothing to improve the look and feel of your actual skin. That’s why Dr. Sohrab includes some of the latest medical aesthetics procedures as part of her practice. 

Treatments like chemical peels, Botox, dermal fillers, and microneedling can reduce wrinkles, enhance facial fullness, and refine the look and feel of your skin. If you have questions about the procedures that are right for you, call or schedule a consultation online today.
