Right Lower Eyelid Ectropion Repair With Spacer Graft
This patient had a history of a prior skin cancer resection from her right lower eyelid several years ago. Due to the healing process a notch formed along the eyelid margin and over time the scar tissue cause a retraction and ectropion and pulling down of the lid. This cause increased eyelid exposure and dryness. Dr. Lamperti reconstructed the eyelid using a spacer graft which was placed on the inner aspect of the eyelid (touching the eye itself) which allow him to elevate the drooping lower lid. In the 3 month after photos you can see how the patient's eyelid is at a much higher level and is closer in appearance to the patient's left eye (which had no dry eye symptoms). She has much reduced lateral canthal rounding and scleral show.
