Eyelid Spacers: Substitutes for Puffy and Fat Eyelids

  • Eyelid spacers are used to treat abnormalities in the lower eyelid of patients. Many people use eyelid spacers to have puffy and fat eyelids. Eyelid spacers are surgically used for tectonic support to the eye during surgery. These spacers are scientifically and technologically advanced, and help the eye from virally inactivating tissues and in the preservation and sterilization of the tissues. They are immunologically and biologically safe and commonly used after undergoing a blepharoplasty surgery of the eyelids. Lower eyelid blepharoplasty is a cosmetic surgery that effectively cures eye disorders and cosmetic surgery related to the eye. The process involves removal of extra fat and skin from the lower eyelid area by trimming excess skin.
  • The global eyelid spacers market is anticipated to expand at a rapid pace during the forecast period, owing to incessant rise in incidences of cosmetic surgery in the U.S., Japan, South Korea, etc. Moreover, technological advancements in eyelid spacers are likely to boost the market during the forecast period.

Key Drivers of Global Eyelid Spacers Market

  • High rate of prevalence of thyroid eye disease is one of the key drivers of the eyelid spacers market. Rise in the prevalence of inherited syndromes which effect the eyes and people with a history of thyroid eye disease, accidents, and trauma has led to the growth of eye surgeries or cosmetic surgeries. These factors are expected to drive the global eyelid spacers market during the forecast period.
  • Technological advancements associated with eyelid spacers are also fueling market growth. There has been an increase in use of porous polyethylene in the manufacturing of eyelid spacers for lid heightening and stabilization. This is anticipated to propel the global eyelid spacers market during the forecast period.
  • Rise in awareness regarding cosmetic surgery for rejuvenation and reconstruction of eyes, ongoing R&D in innovative eyelid spacer grafts, and focus of manufacturers and surgeons to overcome post-surgical complications are major factors that are likely to augment the growth of the eyelid spacers market during the forecast period. However, high price of the eyelid spacer product and its implantation procedure, uncertain reimbursement policies in developing countries, and lack of awareness about eyelid spacers in emerging countries are expected to restrain the growth of the eyelid spacers market during the forecast period.

Porous Polyethylene Material Segment to Offer Attractive Opportunities

  • Porous polyethylene being used as lower eye lid spacers in lid heightening and stabilization due to its ultrathin high density porous structure is driving the demand of the patients opting for cosmetic surgery. The porous polyethylene implant inserted through subciliary incision and sutured to the lower edge of the tarsal plate during cosmetic surgery has exhibited improvement in eyelid mobility and overcome the pain.

Complications Associated With Eyelid Spacers Placement to Hamper Market

  • Certain complications associated with eyelid spacers placement include transient lash loss, skin contour abnormalities, and lid margin ectropion. Late complications related to eyelid spacers mainly include ocular irritation due to keratinization and rarely, perforation. This is likely to hinder the market growth during the forecast period.
