An ectropion (out-turning lid) can occur after blepharoplasty.  This can lead to an impairment in appearance and vision.  In addition, ocular pain and irritation and tearing can occur.  When an ectropion occurs after blepharoplasty surgery an expert in revision eyelid surgery is needed to correct the problem.  Eyelid surgery experts are called oculoplastic or ophthalmic plastic surgeons.   These are eye trained cosmetic facial/eyelid surgeons.  They are certified by the American Society of Ophthalmic Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery  Only a select group of physicians are approved by this society with approximately 500 members in the United States.

Below is an example of a woman who had an ectropion after lower blepharoplasty surgery.  Note the improvement in lower eyelid position after Dr. Massry repaired the lower lid ectropion.
