Tissue Graft for Inner Eyelid Scar Tissue?
Scarring inside the outer corners of my eyelids pulls the lids down, causing ptosis. I have dry eyes. I was told years ago that cutting the scar tissue would make it worse. I recently heard that there is a new technique where healthy tissue from one portion of the eyelid is transplanted to the scarred area, which is cut away. Besides giving me a better cosmetic result, would it make my eyes moister, since the scars cover up some tear glands?
