Introduction to Ectopion Repair Surgery

What is Ectropion/Entropion?

Ectropion and entropion are conditions that affect the way the eyelid is oriented. In entropion, the eyelid rolls inward, and in ectropion, the eyelid rolls outward. Both conditions are types of eyelid drooping that may be age-related, trauma-related, or congenital (from birth), however, most cases are a result of cancers and abnormalities related to previous plastic surgeries.

What is the Recovery like After Ectropion/Entropion Repair Surgery?

Patient recovery varies after ectropion/entropion repair surgery. Dr. Lewen may require you to wear an eye patch for at least 24 hours. Bruising and swelling tend to be well-controlled with cold compresses. Preventing infection is of utmost importance, and you may need to use a special antibiotic ointment for the first seven days after the procedure. As the eye heals, the skin may tighten. Patients should avoid rubbing their eyes.
