  • Before Photo-Ectropin and Entropin Patient 19
    After Photo-Ectropin and Entropin Patient 19

    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.

  • Before Photo-Ectropion and Entropion Patient 17
    After Photo-Ectropion and Entropion Patient 17

    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.
