Ectropion and EntropionBefore and After Photo Gallery
This patient had a right lower eyelid that was turning inward and resulting in significant discomfort, tearing, and eye pain. He had an entropion, where the eyelid is turned inward. Entropion repair was performed to help fix the lid malposition.
She had a left lower lid entropion, which was resulting in her left lower lid to turn inward and continuously rub onto her eyeball. This is usually acquired with age and should be repaired as it can result in constant irritation and pain to the eye. Patients are also at risk for an infection in their eye if this is not repaired. She underwent an entropion repair and you can see how better positioned the left lower lid is. This is quite evident when the patient looks up as seen in these photographs. You can see the improvement in the left lower eyelid position after surgery.
This patient had a traumatic left lower lid ectropion and also retraction (the lid is retracted down to a low position) from prior trauma. It was resulting in constant irritation and she has having difficulty closing her lids well when she sleeps. She underwent a left lower lid ectropion repair, midface lift (resuspension), and retraction repair using an alloderm spacer graft. All of these procedures were performed using minimally invasive techniques and small incisions. Her symptoms have improved since surgery and she very happy with her results.
This patient’s lower lid malpositions were resulting in constant tearing and ocular irritation. She had a “loose” right lower lid that was turned out, which was resulting in an early ectropion. An ectropion repair was performed to reposition the right lower lid to normal position. Her left lower lid had the opposite problem; the lid was turned inward and resulting in constant rubbing of her lashes onto her eye. This is called an entropion. Entropion repair was performed to reposition the lid out to a more normal position. Her symptoms were resolved after surgery and healed very well.
This patient had tearing that was due to his loose lower lids. He had early ectropions where the eyelids would turn out and remain that way. As a result, he would not be able to blink effectively and he would have tearing as a consequence. He also had droopy upper lids, which were affecting his vision. He underwent minimally invasive ptosis repair and lower lid ectropion repair through a canthoplasty technique. He’s healed well, can see better, and with improved tearing symptoms.
This patient had an everted left lower lid, which was resulting in ocular irritation (discomfort of the eye), redness, and constant tearing. This was a longstanding left lower lid ectropion that had to repaired to help improve his symptoms. He underwent an ectropion repair along with a midface resuspension (aka lift) to help keep the lid stabilized and in a better position after surgery. This photograph was taken nearly six months after surgery. The patient feels better and does not have any more discomfort or symptoms associated with the lid.
