Eyelid Reconstruction

Eyelid Reconstruction (After Cancer or Trauma)

Eyelid reconstruction is often required following trauma or tumor excision. Depending on the degree and location, reconstruction can be performed using a variety of tissue flaps and grafts. In some cases, eyelid cancers are best removed surgically by a Mohs surgeon (dermatologist with additional training and expertise) who would be able to spare the greatest amount of normal tissue while maintaining the lowest rate of tumor recurrence. We have close relationships with Mohs surgeons in the area and would coordinate each patient’s care based on the specific circumstances of the case.
