Dr. Sean Paul on Eyelid Revision and Reconstruction
There are a number of reasons patients need to undergo eyelid revision and reconstruction procedures. When patients have defects around the eyes in either the face or the mid-face, it is generally caused by a tumor excision or tissue loss after a trauma. Eyelid reconstruction is commonly used to treat these issues. On the other hand, eyelid revision is typically used to treat a patient who has previously had surgery but still have some pulling down of the lower eyelid or pulling upward. The pulling sensation is otherwise known as eyelid retraction.
