Eyelid Surgery at Eye Specialists of Louisiana
Surgical options for optimal vision are here.
We use our eyes to interact with and explore the world around us. When we have changes to the appearance of our eyes, especially our eyelids, it can cause us to look differently than we feel, lower our self-confidence, and even lead to chronic vision and eye problems.
The good news is that our team of eye care specialists is adept at treating issues that involve the eyelids, leaving you with clearer vision and healthier eyelids in the long run.
If you’re experiencing eyelid problems affecting your vision, daily life, or confidence, we can help. Let’s explore some of the most common eyelid surgery options in Baton Rouge.
Why do I need eyelid surgery?
Eyelids have the thinnest, most delicate skin on the body, so they are more likely to sag or droop prematurely.
Aging eyelids can make a happy, alert person appear tired, sad, or even angry—because so much emotion is expressed with the eyes.
Droopy eyelids can also affect your vision. Hooded eyelids or weak eyelid muscles can make it more challenging to open your eyes completely, limiting your vision field.
Surgical Eyelid Procedures
At Eye Specialists of Louisiana, we proudly offer eyelid surgery options performed by our compassionate and board-certified physician, Thomas Stuckey, III, M.D.
Dr. Stuckey is skilled in various highly-specialized interventions for the eyelid, including
A common procedure used to repair droopy eyelids. It works by reshaping the upper or lower eyelid by removing excess skin, tissue, and fat. It provides a high level of patient satisfaction, making it one of the most popular cosmetic procedures today for treating puffy eyes, droopy eyelids, and conspicuous folds surrounding the eye, creating a natural, bright-eyed, younger-looking you.
Ectropion & Entropion Repair
Aging lower eyelids can weaken and begin to rotate inward or outward.
Inward-facing eyelids can cause the lashes to rub against the eye, leading to chronic irritation. Outward-facing eyelids expose the inner side of the eyelid to air, which can lead to redness, irritation, and excessive tearing.
These issues can be repaired by tightening the lower lid using canthoplasty, a highly specialized procedure that reconstructs the outer corner of the eye, allowing for the corrected placement of eyelids.
Lid Lesion Removal
Various growths, infections, skin tags, and cysts can occur on upper and lower eyelids. Fortunately, many of these eyelid disorders are not vision- or life-threatening. However, they may cause irritative symptoms like burning, foreign-body sensation, or pain.
Through a minimally-invasive procedure, Dr. Stuckey can successfully remove any lid lesions leaving your eyelids free from the long-term symptoms you’ve been experiencing.
