Dr. John Lee is an Eyelid Lift & Facial Reconstructive Surgeon practicing in Main Line, Philadelphia with a special focus on Reconstructive Plastic Surgery.
Stretching of the lower eyelid from age may cause the eyelid to droop downward and turn outward. This condition is called ectropion. Eyelid burns or skin disease can also cause this problem. Ectropion can cause dryness of the eyes, excessive tearing, redness, and sensitivity to light and wind. Reconstructive Eyelid Plastic Surgeryusually restores the normal position of the eyelids, improving these symptoms.
Entropion also occurs most commonly as a result of aging. Infection and scarring inside the eyelids are other causes of entropion. When the eyelid turns inward, the eyelashes and skin rub against the eye, causing redness, irritation, tearing and sensitivity to light and wind. If entropion is not treated, an infection may develop on the cornea (clear surface of the eye). With Reconstructive Plastic Surgeryeyelids can be turned outward to its normal position, protecting the eye and improving these symptoms.
