Is ear cartilage okay to use as lower eyelid spacer?
Doctor Answers 3
Yes, ear cartilage is an excellent spacer to supplement the middle lamella in correction of scleral show or ectropion.
To be sure, see two or more experienced, board-certified Plastic Surgeons, occuloplastic surgeons or facial ENT plastic surgeons in your area for a complete evaluation to make sure you are a good candidate and that it is safe for you to have surgery.
I hope this helps.
