Eyelid Complications

Why do they originate? How can they be prevented? How are they solved?

Conventional eyelid surgery involves removing skin and excess fat bags.

However, the results so far are not entirely satisfactory due to the scars and deformations produced by these resective techniques.

The upper eyelid
The usual techniques of correcting the upper eyelid consist of removing skin from it.

The resection of upper eyelid skin not only leaves unsightly scars but also causes a decrease in eyebrows, and for this reason the look of the eyes becomes tired, sad and aged.

The technique developed by Dr. Ricardo Hoogstra and applied since 1996 consists of making a minimum incision in the upper eyelid through which the bags are extracted, and then using laser technology to contract the skin.

Thanks to the combination of these modern surgical techniques and the incorporation of the new CO2 laser technology, we achieved what seemed impossible: perfect results, respecting the natural anatomy and without adverse effects.

Lower eyelids
The greatest benefit of the transconjunctival technique with the use of the laser technology used by Dr. Ricardo Hoogstra is that it leaves no scars, as it does not produce anatomical damage to the eyelid muscle.

Traditional techniques remove skin, and this effect of sutures and relaxation of the orbicularis of the eyelids tends to cause the eye to not close properly, a complication known as “sclera show” or Ectropion.

In turn, conventional surgery removes a small portion of skin leaving the rest of the skin of the eyelids aged.

The laser assisted transconjunctival technique of Carbon Dioxide used by Dr. Ricardo Hoogstra, does not damage muscular structures, does not dry skin, rejuvenates the entire skin of the eyelids and ensures aesthetic functional and natural results.



In turn in the lower eyelid there was a complication we call ectropion, the eye can not close due to excessive skin resection.
