Treatment Options for Lower Eyelid Retraction

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. Effects of this retraction include: changing the shape of the eye, tearing, mucus discharge and discomfort. There are various surgical 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. Contact our NYC offices for more information on how we can treat your specific case.
