Double board-certified oculofacial plastic surgeon, Gregory D. Lewen, M.D., offers eyelid surgery for men and women in Miami, Aventura, and the surrounding areas of Florida. Dr. Lewen is one of the few plastic surgeons in the area who specializes in plastic surgery of the eyes.

A stye is a small and painful red bump that grows along the base of either the upper or lower eyelashes. They form as a result of a bacterial infection. Chalazions are not caused by bacterial infections. They form when one of the oil-producing glands in the eyelids becomes blocked or clogged, which results in redness and swelling.

Both chalazions and styes can be treated at home by applying a warm compress to the affected area with a clean washcloth that has been steeped in hot water. However, if this treatment fails, it may be necessary to apply antibiotic eye drops or to have the area drained via a very small incision.

If you are experiencing difficulties due to a stye or chalazion, contact our office to schedule a consultation. Oculofacial plastic surgeon Dr. Gregory Lewen can provide you with the professional care you need.
