Droopy Eyelids And Ectropion

The drooping of the eyelids due to aging.

Here we unveil for you information about solutions by Dr. Villamarin for Droopy Eyelids And Ectropion in Madrid and Valencia

The slow and progressive drooping of the upper eyelids (blepharoptosis) is common, and sometimes the drooping and turning down of the lower eyelid (ectropion of age), due to distension of the eyelid structures over the years, giving a feeling of exhaustion and senility. Dr. Villamarín, an expert in eyelid surgery in Madrid and Valencia and in medical and surgical rejuvenation of the face and eyes, seeks a comprehensive solution that solves the senile malposition of the eyelids and harmonizes our entire face through advanced and combined techniques in innovative programs created by himself.

Usually, senile blepharoptosis or drooping of the upper eyelids over the years is combined with other problems, such as drooping eyebrows and excess skin on the upper eyelid, although it may be an isolated problem. Also the drooping of the lower eyelid due to age or senile ectropion can be isolated or combined with other tissue retraction problems. Our Dr. Villamarín Madrid and Valencia Blepharoplasty programs allow the treatment of any of these aging problems. Recover your image of youth with us!

Am I a good candidate for surgery for eyelid ptosis due to age and senile ectropion Madrid and Valencia?

Candidates for these procedures with surgery should be in good general health, have mild to advanced changes in the eyelids and periocular region, and have realistic expectations. They should not suffer from skin, infectious, immune, advanced thyroid diseases, severe dry eyes, or uncontrolled hypertension or diabetes. It is strongly recommended not to smoke from 1 month before surgery to 1 month after surgery. The patient must not be pregnant or breastfeeding.

Dr. Villamarín will meet with each patient individually to determine if they may benefit from a surgical eyelid lift and repositioning.

During this consultation, a thorough examination of the eyebrows, eyelids, vision, the eyes themselves (ophthalmological examination with fundus), tear production and the face will be carried out. The objective is to determine how many problems overlap and exist in the patient, to detect if there are causes not related to aging, such as neurological or others, and thus avoid confusion. The objectives, benefits, results and alternatives will be discussed with Dr. Villamarín and then he will design a detailed and adapted or tailor-made treatment plan for each patient. In the case of surgery, a preoperative procedure will be ordered and postoperative recommendations will be provided in accordance with the protocol for the procedure.

What kind of anesthesia do we use?

Local anesthesia, with or without sedation, which may include anesthetic creams and anesthetic eye drops for the insertion of protective shields for eye and vision safety, considered by Dr. Villamarín (also an ophthalmic or eye surgeon) to be essential for patient safety (Safe Surgery & Procedures protocol) and applied to all procedures that are close to the eye.

The surgical procedure for eyelid ptosis due to age and senile ectropion Madrid and Valencia

Following the safety protocol specifically designed by Dr. Villamarín, whenever possible we use cannulas for the injection of any substance, be it anesthetic or a filler, instead of needles, to minimize the possibility of serious complications. Sometimes we use procedures without stitches or without scars on the skin, whenever possible. Surgical assistance with laser or radiofrequency is routine, unless contraindicated. The use of peels or lasers and cosmeceutical treatment may be recommended.

For blepharoptosis or drooping of the eyelid due to age, Dr. Villamarín uses an approach usually without scars or stitches for the authentic eyelid lift by fixing the aged tissues in the depth of the eyelid. This can be combined with an upper blepharoplasty or a brow lift, if the case requires it.

For ectropion or malposition of the lower eyelid due to age, Dr. Villamarín usually uses a minimally invasive technique that includes lateral canthoplasty. This can be combined with a lower blepharoplasty or a midface lift, if the case requires it.

The age-related ptosis of the eyelids.

Dr. Villamarín will study each case and look for the least invasive surgical procedures performed under local anesthesia, to achieve excellent results. Depending on the situation and importance of the case, the specific techniques to solve drooping eyelids due to age could be framed in one of the treatment levels for Madrid and Valencia blepharoplasty designed by Dr. Villamarín.

If several problems occur at the same time, it is sometimes recommended to combine upper blepharoplasty or even a brow lift with ptosis or upper eyelid drooping surgery. In the same way, lower blepharoplasty and even cheek lift are sometimes combined with lower eyelid ectropion surgery. In addition, all this can be integrated with the rest of the face in specialized procedures designed by Dr. Villamarín such as NEW AGE LIDS ®, FRESHLOOK TOUCH ® and FRESHLOOK RESCUE ®, LIFTING MAKEOVER ® and PREVENT & ACT SKINCARE ®
