DermTV Common Causes for Itchy and Swollen Eyelids DermTV.Com Epi 012
Music Hello, I’m Dr. Neal Schultz pause and welcome to DermTV. Itchy red swollen eyelids is a vexing and annoying problem that I see mostly in my female patients, and the most common cause of this problem, believe it or not, is nail polish. There are only two things that touch the skin of your eyesyour fingers and your makeup, and it’s usually not your makeup. Nail polish only causes this reaction if you’re allergic to it in the first 46 hours after it’s been applied while it’s still drying because.
The chemicals are much more irritating in the liquid nail polish than in the dry nail polish. They actually change when they’re on your nails, and those chemicals, after 68 hours, are no longer irritating. So the next time you wake up with red swollen itchy eyelids, think about whether or not you had new nail polish applied the day before and, if you remove your nail polish, reapply it and keep your hands away from your eyelids for the first eight hours and I’ll bet that that rash doesn’t come back.

Why Restoring the Functionality and Health of the Eyelids are Most Important in Revision Surgery
Lower Eyelid Surgery One Year Ago and I Have These Suture Marks train Tracks Scars Under my Eye Is there any procedure or cream I can use to get rid of these. I was thinking a chemical peel, but I was told that it is only very superficial. I was also told laser, but I’m afraid it would retract my eyes even more from the tightening. I also have ectropion and retraction too. What would help these scars and what should I stay away from Also what caused this to happen Thank You.
Thank you for your question! You submitted a photo where you clearly demonstrate the suture marks from under your eyelid and being your primary concern and at the end of your question, you also mentioned you have eyelid ectropion and retraction. So I’m going to first address the question about the suture marks. Those suture marks are the result of having lower eyelid blepharoplasty doe from the outside where an incision was made and skin was overlapped. Whether there was an overlap or a skin pinch is probably irrelevant at this point, just stitches were made and you developed these marks.
Now when someone has adequate skin, my approach typically would be to excise the skin that has the marks or at least much of it as possible. And now you can sometimes improve this area with laser but because the skin is so thin, that’s a very tricky thing to consider. Given that you also have retraction and ectropion, in my practice, I deal with eyelid ectropion a lot from people who come from all over the world who have this problem after cosmetic eyelid surgery. Very often, they have one, two or more revisions before we see them.
Now you’re dealing with an issue where there are multiple problems in terms of tissue availability. That means if your eyelid is rotated out, there can be a skin shortage so you need more skin. If it is retracted, then the middle layer of the skin needs some vertical height. So you might need much more than just dealing with these suture marks. But this dependent on your perception of your cosmetic outcome as well as how aggressively you want to deal with the functional aspect. You know, in ophthalmology, having eyelids that function well is critical.
For eye health. We know this. So it’s surprising to me that you are not as concerned of at least you didn’t mention you question about symptoms related to tearing or dry eye. I think that your concern about the mark is of course important but I think in the big picture, the position of your eyelid in relation to the health of your eye is a more significant thing that needs to be addressed. So my suggestion is to consider a strategy to help address the eyelid retraction and ectropion. So I would recommend visiting, probably, the most.
Qualified is an oculofacial plastic surgeon with a lot of experience in this area particularly in the cosmetic area. There are a lot who focus more on cosmetic and some focus more on general medical issues and I think, from experience, my practice being 99.9 cosmetic, I’m able to offer a different perspective based on experience. So I would suggest that you find an oculofacial plastic surgeon who you’re comfortable with and discuss this matter and what you’d like to do and then make your decision based on the options available. So I hope that was helpful and thank you for your question.
Solving Extra Skin Over the Upper Eyelids to Relieve Irritation and Heaviness
What are my droopy eyelid options I am 44 years old. My right eye lid is dropping more than left and causing a very heavy feeling in my eye and irritation. Left isn’t so great either but not as bad. What are my options Would insurance cover I am curious of costs if insurance wouldn’t cover. Thank you. Thank you for your question! You submitted a question with photos that demonstrate one eyelid appearing heavier than the other eyelid and you’re asking about options as well as about whether insurance coverage would be appropriate.
So in reviewing your photos, and anytime someone like yourself comes to our practice and we look at heavy looking eyelids, we try to first differentiate, is there extra skin over the eyelid which is termed dermatochalasis, is the eyelid drooping because of a muscle issue related to the muscle that lifts the eyelid called the levator muscle and that term is ptosis and we also look at the at the brow position. The brow position could also result in extra skin being pushed downward on top of the eyelid. We refer to that as brow ptosis.
Now, when you look at your photos, it is clear that the brows are relatively asymmetric. This is something that is very much normal. At 44 years old, I would suspect that your brows have not come down significantly and I would also advise against a brow lift because I think with your brows elevated even with a few millimeter, it may have a negative impact on your facial expression and you may look eternally surprised. So I think that looking at your photos and looking at how your eyes appear where the upper eyelid margin is not.
Low enough to be affecting the pupil, what appears you have is something called dermatochalasis. Dermatochalasis means extra skin over the eyelids. And for that, the solution is blepharoplasty. Blepharoplasty basically means to address extra skin, extra soft tissue, extra fat, anything that is impinging on top of the upper eyelid. Now there is an art of doing cosmetic blepharoplasty in that you want to look natural, you don’t want too much extra skin removed. If you do any kind of online research, one of the most common concerns is the unfortunate event when someone has too much skin removed and they.
Have difficulty closing their eyes. As a cosmetic oculofacial plastic surgeon for 20 years, we have patients who come from all over the world for revision surgery where it’s for drooping of the upper eyelid after blepharoplasty as well as skin shortage of the upper eyelid after blepharoplasty. So this something that cannot be overstated as being so important for your situation. The idea is that blepharoplasty for the eyelid is not only taking as much skin as possible. It is really about the art of the design as well as employing techniques.
That can allow skin to fold in properly so that it will look attractive and will look natural and you won’t look just as tired. Now to address the question about insurance coverage, having practiced for 20 years, I have watched how insurance companies have become very strategic in the way they present themselves to patients and doctors. And if you were to call your insurance company, I would believe likely, well yes, if you were covered if your doctor shows it’s medically necessary. This is where the whole medical industry became so abused. And someone like.
Yourself, even if few years ago, 15 or 20 years plus ago, if you had any visual field defect, it would be something be covered. That unfortunately led to a lot of abuse in the system and a lot of people who didn’t have a functional issue, functional problem for eyelid surgery would get covered and so now the pendulum swung to the other direction, now this is something extremely difficult. This is one of the reasons why over 10 years ago, in my practice, we stopped all insurance altogether. We found there the deceptive practiced.
To be detrimental to our ability to deliver the proper care to our patients. The insurance companies would improve something and then later on, deny it and that’s kind of what they do. Looking at your photo, I doubt, I think it is unlikely that any medical director of any insurance company would consider your upper eyelids heavy enough to be blocking your vision to at least a significant enough degree. Essentially, the general rule of thumb is, if someone can see your pupil, that means you can see out. And it really takes really low eyelid to the.
Point of complete coverage before an insurance company would consider that and I even had cases that even then, it got denied. So it’s no secret my discussed with the insurance company. So I think ultimately, you would save yourself the hassle by just accepting that this mostly likely a truly cosmetic procedure. Identify an expert in upper eyelid surgery. Many doctors perform eyelid surgery in the hierarchy of specialties, one would argue that a sub specialty is super specialty like oculoplastic or oculofacial plastic surgery is a position uniquely qualified.
Why Eyelid Surgery is Not for Addressing Wrinkles the Importance of Eyelids for Eye Function
Wrinkles and Excess Skin After Upper and Lower Blepharoplasty I had both upper lower blepharoplasty 4 months ago. Please tell me if I should have reconstructive surgery for the wrinkled skin texture at the outer edge and the big wrinkle at inner edge of my eyes. There is also a piece of skin at both outer edges that pulls when opening my eyes. Should this be fixed My eyes are so different in shape which is what I wanted fixed with this surgery. Is that too much to expect I was also told that.
The skin area under my eyes will always be slightly swollen. Thank you for your question! You’ve asked several things in your question and you submitted some photos. First of all, let’s assume a couple of things about the history. You’ve had upper and lower eyelid surgery and in the photo, you mentioned about wrinkles, about excess skin and you mentioned about the eyelid being pulled down. Something to understand about cosmetic eyelid surgery in general, is that eyelid surgery specifically does not address wrinkles. Upper eyelid surgery typically addresses excess.
Skin or in situations such as asian eyelid surgery, it involves the creation of a crease or fold in the upper eyelid where one did no exist. It does not necessarily address wrinkles directly. Now in the case of upper eyelids, if someone has a lot of extra skin, then yes, there may be some improvement in the appearance of wrinkles but a lot of times it’s about the amount of skin that had a lot of those wrinkles is removed. In the lower eyelid, that’s where a lot of things get trickier. With the intention of.
What are the Risks of Eyelid Surgery
What are the Risks of Eyelid Surgery Eyelid surgery, like any other surgery involves risks such as bleeding and infection. Unlike other surgeries, eyelid surgery has a direct impact on the function and health of the eyes and can affect your vision. A properly detailed history and physical examination of the eyes can help reduce the risk of undesirable results and complications. Conditions such as ptosis or lacrimal gland prolapse are often missed prior to cosmetic blepharoplasty leaving people dissatisfied with their results. Examples of surgical complications include drooping of the upper eyelids after surgery, skin shortage.
Preventing proper eyelid closure, undesirable scarring. Lower eyelid complications examples include lower eyelid retraction or eyes pulled down or rounded as well as ectropion or eyelids turned outward. Unfortunately undesirable results can be associated with eye problems including dry eyes and corneal ulceration. It’s important that you know that terms like board certified is actually being used deceptively by surgeons with less expertise in order to create a perception of superiority in plastic surgery for the eyes when compared to doctors with more specialty based training and more focused area of practice.
