Eyelid Malposition Surgery

Eyelid malposition is a term that is used when the upper or lower eyelids are in an abnormal position. In addition to an unsightly appearance, a malpositioned eyelid can impede vision, cause disturbance of the tear drainage system, and be very uncomfortable. By performing eyelid malposition surgery, New York City’s board certified facial plastic surgeon Dr. Richard Westreich is able to move the eyelid into a more natural position, restoring normal appearance and function of the eye.

Types of Eyelid Malposition

Eyelid malposition is a relatively common disorder. Patients may be born with malpositioned eyelids or they may develop with age. The most common forms of eyelid malposition are:
