Stitch Eyelids to Eyebrow to Fix Ectropion After Eyelid Surgery?
I need to have a second surgery because my first eyelid surgery did not go well. I have ectropion in one eye. My doctor wants to perform a procedure that he invented. He wants to stitch my eye to my eyebrow shut for over a week. If this works it will be great, but won't this make it worse and create many new scars? Has anyone heard of this procedure? What other options are there for me?
