Eyelid Cancer Surgery
Restore your health and vision with this beneficial reconstructive procedure
Reconstructive Eyelid Cancer Surgery
Cancer of the eyelids and surrounding areas are not uncommon. Eyelid cancers account for up to 10% of all skin cancers. The most common forms of eyelid cancer are basal cell carcinoma and squamous cell carcinoma. Excision of the tumor is typically uncomplicated. Conversely, reconstruction of the surgical defect can be extremely challenging.
The importance of specialized training in this area cannot be underscored, and a poor result can lead not only to poor cosmetics, but also pain, discomfort, infection and loss of vision. This is why it’s important to choose a highly skilled oculoplastic surgeon, like Dr. Massry, for your eyelid cancer excision and reconstruction.
Eyelid Cancer Removal
The goal of Reconstructive Eyelid Cancer Surgery is to not only remove the tumor and any surrounding affected tissue, it’s also to reconstruct the area for a natural appearance once the cancer is removed.
