This is a collective term describing surgical procedures on tissue structures around the eyes, especially on the eyelids and tear ducts.
Reconstructive surgery is often needed in combination with the removal of tumors in the eyelid area. It is also necessary, for example, as part of the treatment for malocclusions of the lids and lashes in cases such as ptosis (droopy eyelids) and ectropion / entropion (outward / inward rotation of the eyelid).
Cosmetically disturbing excess skin is removed during eyelid surgery (also called blepharoplasty). Cosmetic eyelid surgery is one of the most commonly performed operations in aesthetic plastic surgery. Technique: the excess skin is removed along the pre-marked eyelid. The scar is located in the natural skin fold of the upper eyelid and is practically invisible, especially when it is combined with a fine suture technique.
