Ectropion Repair Procedure
The exact treatment method is dependent on the specific needs of the patient and the cause of ectropion:
Ectropion due to muscle weakness: The surgery may involve the removal of a small section of eyelid to tighten the muscles in the area.
Ectropion due to scars or prior surgery: The procedure may rely on a skin graft to allow a re-positioning of the eyelid.
Dr. Braunstein may recommend lubricating eye drops or eyelid tape for the temporary relief of ectropion symptoms. In order to protect the cornea and to alleviate long-term symptoms, however, most instances of ectropion must be treated surgically.
Ectropion repair is typically a brief, outpatient surgical procedure that is performed at the outpatient surgery center.
Dr. Braunstein is nothing short of AMAZING. Went to her for chalazion surgery. She performed it in the office - it was quick, painless and absolutely perfect! She has such a pleasant and calm demeanor and wonderful bedside manner. She is highly skilled as is evident by my wonderful results. Not a drop of bruising and no pain afterwards at ALL. Best doctor hands down!! Thank you Dr. Braunstein!
One word! AWESOME!!
You’ve been a great doctor. Keep doing what you do to help so many people. I was overcome with thankfulness when I thought of how much the surgery you gave me changed my life. Thank you so much for the great care and surgery you performed on me.
