Okuloplastische Eingriffe stellen aufgrund der funktionellen Bedeutung der Lider für die Oberfläche des Auges spezielle Anforderungen an die postoperative Nachsorge. Wir geben eine Übersicht über die Möglichkeiten, Grenzen und die wissenschaftliche Evidenz zur Nachsorge nach lidchirurgischen Eingriffen hinsichtlich Schwellungsbekämpfung, Schmerzlinderung, Infektionsprophylaxe und Narbenbehandlung.

Postoperative care and options for scar treatment in eyelid surgery


Oculoplastic surgery places special demands on postoperative care because of the functional importance of the eyelids for the ocular surface. We present an overview of postoperative care after surgical eyelid interventions. All options, limits and the scientific evidence are discussed with a special focus on the treatment of postoperative edema, analgesia, infection prophylaxis and scar treatment.
