Gold Weight Implants to Help Close The Upper Eyelids in Patients with Eyelid Paresis (Weakness) or Paralysis (No Function)

Posted by admin

Eyelid Paresis (weakness) and paralysis (no function) is a troublesome complication of Bell’s palsy or other forms of facial paralysis.  When eyelid paresis or paralysis occurs it is critical to help rehabilitate eyelid closure.  This is typically done with implants that weigh the lid down so it closes better.  These implants are made of Gold and Platinum as these are inert materials which typically do not induce eyelid inflammation.  Today these implants can be placed in a cosmetically acceptable way.

Correcting eyelid paresis or paralysis requires an eyelid surgery expert.

Eyelid Paralysis (inability to close the eyes) can occur from Bell’s palsy or numerous other disease processes that cause the facial nerve not to function.  In all cases the result is facial and eyelid paresis (weakness) or paralysis (no function).  When eyelid paresis or paralysis occurs the eyelids don’t close, the eye is exposed with resultant pain, redness, tearing, reduced vision and constant irritation.  This is a very troublesome situation for the patient.
