Ectropion Repair: 5 Years Later!


Sometimes patients see me with more than one problem. This 86 year old had a chronic ectropion with a symptomatic dry eye on his left lid. At the same time, he had a basal cell of his left cheek at the corner of his eye and on the tip of his nose.

With a single operation with a single downtime, he had an ectropion repair as seen here. He had a Moh’s type excision of his face and nose using the cheek and nose adjacent tissue. Using plastic technique the skin flap of his nose could be rotated from his cheek and he is seen here 3 months, in the operating room and then 5 years later with normal eye function and nearly imperceptible scarring of his cheek excision and nose basal cell excision.

Of course 5 years later he is now 91 and going strong![/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_single_image image=”58386″ img_size=”full” alignment=”center”][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_single_image image=”58387″ img_size=”full” alignment=”center”][/vc_column][/vc_row]
