Eyelid Laceration Repair

Eyelid lacerations are cuts or tears to the tissues around the eyes. They can range from minor scrapes to more serious wounds involving the eyelid margin or the tear drainage system. Dr. Abbott uses cutting-edge surgical techniques for eyelid laceration repair in Dallas, while giving you the best aesthetic result possible.

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.

Repairing Lacerations in the Periocular Skin

Periocular skin laceration repair is typically done to fix injuries or cuts to the tissues such as eyelid laceration repair in Dallas. This outpatient surgery is performed under local anesthesia and sedation, making it a relatively pain-free process. Dr. Abbott will carefully remove excess skin, repair the tear, and fuse the two ends of the damaged tissues using sutures or tissue glue. The complexity of the surgery will depend on the type and size of the laceration.

Recovery After Eyelid Laceration Repair

The recovery process after an eyelid laceration repair is usually pretty simple. You might have mild bruising and swelling around your eyes for a few days, but the side effects diminish quickly. You must follow your surgeon’s aftercare guidelines accurately to ensure optimal healing. Please keep your eye clean, take prescribed medications, and use cold compresses to reduce swelling. You should take a few days off work, and avoid strenuous activities until you completely recover.
