Eyelid Reconstruction Surgery
Various diseases and injuries can impact the eyelids, which are vital for protecting the eye. Skin cancer, ptosis, entropion and ectropion can impact the eyelids, requiring repair to ensure these features function and appear normal. Burns and lacerations can also damage eyelids, requiring medical care and reconstructive plastic surgery. At Dallas Facial Plastic Surgery Center, we offer advanced options in eyelid reconstruction surgery at our facility in Irving, TX.
The most common cause of eyelid damage is skin cancer. Basal and squamous cell cancers are the most common to affect the eyelids. Mohs surgery is the standard treatment for effective removal of skin cancer lesions, including those on the eyelid. This can remove the skin and tissue of the eyelid to ensure all cancer cells are eliminated, but requires a reconstruction of the eyelid to restore the function and appearance.
Beyond skin cancer, injuries, degenerative conditions and congenital birth defects can affect the eyelids. At Dallas Facial Plastic Surgery Center, we welcome the opportunity to help our patients recover from disfiguring eyelid damage by providing advanced options in eyelid reconstruction.
Functional and Aesthetic Eyelid Restoration
The eyelids are essential for covering the eye and keeping it protected from injury and dryness. When an eyelid is damaged, it can jeopardize vision and greatly affect the aesthetics of the face. First and foremost, eyelid reconstruction surgery is designed to restore the protective and functional aspects of the eyelid. Secondarily, cosmetic techniques are used to create a natural appearance to the restored eyelid.
