“Our little princess Mia was born with a craniofacial deformity. She was basically born without cheekbones and also has no structure to her bottom eyelids. She has the skin but no support.
She presents facial asymmetry and wide colobomas of the lower eyelids. She will require reconstruction at this stage of the paucity of soft tissue and in her face especially around the lateral eye area. This procedure is done with fat grafting which is harvested from her medial thighs or abdomen and processed in a specialised manner with centrifugation to obtain a pure fat graft. The fat will be grafted into her face correctly while the bed is prepared for the contour grafts.
This is not done for cosmetic purposes but it needs to be done for the lower eyelids do not have support and there will be a resultant ectropion that develops in future. The first step is the fat grafting to support the lower eyelids and then there will be the final lower eyelid reconstruction as necessary. This will be done in 2 separate procedures.”
