Eyelid Laceration Repair
Repairing Lacerations in the Eyelids
Eyelid laceration repair is a simple procedure used to repair eyelids that have been injured due to cuts, tears, or other forms of trauma. Dr. Abbott performs the surgery under local anesthesia, so you will remain awake throughout the procedure and not feel any pain. During the eyelid repair, the surgeon will carefully close the injured tissues of your eyelids using tissue glue or sutures to facilitate healing. The procedure concludes within an hour.
Repairing Lacerations in the Eyebrows
Eyebrow laceration repair is a minimally invasive procedure to correct deep cuts, tears, and punctures to the eyebrow area. It is performed under local anesthesia and involves using sutures or other adhesive materials to reattach the eyebrow tissues together. The suture or adhesive is removed after a few days, and the wound can heal naturally. The entire procedure is relatively quick, and the recovery time is minimal.
