Ectropion Surgery

Ectropion is an out-turning of the eyelid margin. This usually involves the lower eyelid. Ectropion can cause tearing, redness, mattering and may affect the closure of the eyelids.

Ectropion may be related to previous cosmetic surgery on the face, or may develop with aging.

Repairing ectropion requires tightening the lower eyelid at the outside corner of the eye. Tightening the eyelid can be combined with opening the tear ducts to improve tearing. It can also be performed with lower blepharoplasty when indicated. Some types of ectropion may require mid-face elevation at the same time, or on rare occurrences, a skin graft or flap reconstruction.

Ectropion repair is usually covered by insurance and can be performed as an outpatient.
