Eyelid Scar Treatment – Biologic Remodeling
Dr. Raymond Douglas and his team of expert surgeons have pioneered methods to biologically modify tissue to reduce scarring and improve function of the eyelids. At the International Orbital Institute, we have developed techniques to cause controlled stretching of unwanted scar tissue, which then allows the scar to remodel to a point that the tissue becomes near normal in consistency and function.
Tissue expansion is utilized by injecting hyaluronic acid and 5-Fluorouracil to achieve an effect that surgery can not duplicate. The tissue expansion from the filler places the tissue on constant stretch allowing the scar to remodel while 5-Fluorouracil used to facilitate very rapid remodeling of the fibroblasts. A combination of these treatments leads to great improvement of the scarring, lid height, and lid function. You can see the results of biologic remodeling in these patients below.
His use of anti-metabolite therapy combined with tissue expansion has been widely published in medical journals and has helped countless patients achieve the best possible outcome.
