Canthopexy Surgery to Correct Droopy Eyelids

Miami based plastic surgeon Dr. Mendieta performs canthopexy surgery to fix eyelids that droop or sag due to sun damage, prior eyelid surgery or aging. Canthopexy is also used to repair puffy pouches of fat that result in a tired or aged appearance. After surgery patients will see tightening and possible elevation of the lower lids.

Canthopexy is often combined with a bleharoplasty, facelift or brow lift to enhance results.

Canthopexy strengthens and stabilizes the canthal tendon and can be required to treat ectropion which can cause dryness and irritation in the eye and lead to eye infections.
