Eyelid Plastic Surgery
Damage to one or both eyelids can impact vision and appearance. The most common causes of eyelid injuries include trauma such as burns, lacerations and cancer. Regardless of the cause, reconstruction of damaged eyelids requires extensive knowledge and skill to account for movement, vision and aesthetics. Dr. Rousso’s extensive experience as a facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon is paramount in his success with helping our patients with eyelid damage restore form, function and beauty through eyelid plastic surgery.
The eyelid is a very delicate component of the eye, and it is needed for protection and visual function. It also is an integral aspect of the beauty of the eye, one of the most noticeable features on the face. Eyelid plastic surgery can be an extremely complex procedure. Unlike other features on the face that remain stationary, the eyelid must be able to blink and move effectively. It is also imperative to protect the vision. Beyond function, most patients also want to recover the aesthetic form that frames the eye for a natural appearance.
Undergoing Oculoplastic Surgery
In most cases, oculoplastic surgery will include a combination of different tissue and skin grafts to reconstruct the eyelid. These components are harvested from inconspicuous areas to be used in the grafting process to create a functional and balanced appearance to the new eyelid. One or both eyelids can be reconstructed with special attention paid to protect the vision and mobility of the eyelid, while creating a pleasing appearance for cosmetic purposes.
