Surgical Treatment

The optimum surgical treatment choice for reducing the risk of ocular exposure in the facial palsy patient has long been the implantation of an eyelid weight made from either 99.99% pure gold or pure platinum. MedDev sterile eyelid implants are provided for this purpose in two designs: Contour™ Eyelid Implants and ThinProfile™ Eyelid Implants.


ThinProfile Eyelid Implants

MedDev’s ThinProfile Eyelid Implant is 40% thinner than our popular Contour implant. The ThinProfile’s reduced thickness provides improved eyelid cosmesis while providing the same effectiveness as our proven Contour implant.

Our ThinProfile Eyelid Implant features a proprietary three-dimensional curvature and precise tapering to produce the thinnest eyelid implant available.  An aesthetically pleasing outcome assures patient satisfaction.

Contour Eyelid Implants

Contour™ Eyelid Implants feature a proprietary three-dimensional design that conforms to the curvature of the ocular globe.

The Contour Eyelid Implant is less conspicuous when implanted in the eyelid because the tapered lower edge and rounded lower corners create a lower profile. Surfaces and edges of the implant are smoothly polished to ensure tissue compatibility.
