Eyelid Reconstruction


For men and women from Barrington, Arlington Heights, Schaumburg, Crystal Lake, and Algonquin, surgical correction can restore a natural shape, position, and function of the eyelid where prior eyelid surgery has produced unsatisfactory results, such as:

  • Difficulty closing
  • Excess sclera show (where the white inside the lower eyelid is revealed)
  • Unnatural rounded or tight eyelids

Specialized In Eyelid Surgery Correction

Dr. Burke uses the detailed techniques learned during her specialized training in eyelid surgery to perform eyelid repair. In some cases, correction of prior eyelid surgery may include placement of internal eyelid spacers, as well as lateral canthopexy or canthoplasty (repositioning of tendons) to elevate the lower eyelid back to a more natural position.

Generally an outpatient procedure, eyelid repairs are most commonly performed under general anesthesia.
