What does it involve?
This consists of restoring volume to the areas surrounding the eye, in particular, the eyelids. To do so, autografts (grafts taken from the same patient) are used.
When is it carried out?
It is indicated for cases of upper eyelid retraction.
A comprehensive eye and eyelid examination.
Before the surgery
Patients should not take anticoagulants or aspirin before surgery.
The procedure is performed under local anaesthesia and sedation. Grafts can be taken from different locations, which are determined by the amount and type of tissue required.
There are no significant risks to take into account.
Evisceration is the removal of all ocular tissue, leaving only the sclera (the outer wall) intact. The cavity can then be filled with material to simulate the eye and a prosthesis fitted to the surface so that it has the same appearance as the other eye. Evisceration can be performed in many cases, except in tumours or when the sclera is severely damaged.
