Lower Eyelid Retraction Repair
Lower eyelid retraction could occur as a result of trauma, eyelid tumors, or secondary to internal scarring after a lower eyelid blepharoplasty. This could be devastating to the patient changing the shape of the eye, resulting in tearing, mucus discharge and discomfort. There are various techniques used to repair lower eyelid retraction depending on its severity. They include lifting the mid-face, tightening the lower eyelid, placement of a spacer graft and other options.
