Reconstructive Eyelid Plastic Surgery
When the structures in and around the eyes have been damaged through illness or trauma, surgery may be required to reconstruct the bones and to strengthen the muscles that control the movement of the eyes or to recreate the eyelids. Dr. Maleki specializes in the management of deformities and abnormalities of the eyelids, lacrimal (tear) system, the orbit (bony cavity surrounding the eye) and the adjacent face.
There is no replacement for the peace of mind that comes with knowing that your care is in the hands of a highly experienced Oculoplastic specialist, not a general Plastic Surgeon, Ophthalmologist, Dermatologist, Otolaryngologist (ENT) or a General Practitioner.
Common reconstructive procedures performed by Dr. Maleki:
- Drooping eyelid repair (Ptosis repair)
- Thyroid eye disease correction
- Ectropion repair (eyelids that are turned out)
- Entropion repair (eyelids that turn inward)
- Eyelid cancer removal
- Eyelid chalazion surgery
All of the above are available on referral by your physician.
