Facial paralysis (such as Bell’s palsy) often leads to many problems with the eyes and eyelids such as: dry eye, ectropion, eyelid retraction, eyelid paralysis and ocular irritation.  Fixing paralyzed eyelids is a complex surgical process that requires an eyelid specialist (oculoplastic surgeon or ophthalmic plastic surgeon).  More importantly making the eyelids look and work correctly and appear normal aesthetically is the real challenge.  This requires a surgeon with significant experience with facial paralysis and eyelid paralysis and one who has extensive cosmetic surgical experience.
