What is complete eyelid reconstruction?

Complete eyelid reconstruction is a surgical procedure that aims to restore the functionality, aesthetics, and protective role of the eyelids in cases where they have been severely damaged or lost. You may be a candidate if you have undergone extensive trauma, cancer excision, or congenital abnormalities affecting the eyelids.

The surgical process involves careful planning and reconstruction of the eyelid structures, including the skin, muscles, and supporting tissues. Skin grafting, flap reconstruction, or the use of artificial implants may be employed to recreate the natural contour, shape, and movement of the eyelids. The goal is not only to improve the appearance but also to ensure proper eyelid closure, tear distribution, and protection of the eye. 

What can I expect during excision treatments for lesions?

During excision treatments for lesions, you can expect a comprehensive and personalized approach to address your specific condition. The procedure begins with a thorough evaluation and consultation to determine the best course of action. Prior to the treatment, the area around the lesion will be cleaned and numbed to ensure patient comfort.

Dr. Warner will carefully remove the lesion using precise surgical techniques, ensuring minimal damage to surrounding healthy tissues. The excised tissue may be sent for further analysis, such as a biopsy and frozen section to provide a definitive diagnosis. Depending on the size and location of the lesion, the wound may be closed with sutures, adhesive strips, or left to heal naturally.

What can I expect after the procedure?

After the procedure, you may experience mild discomfort, swelling, or redness in the treated area. Proper wound care instructions will be provided to promote healing and reduce the risk of infection. Follow-up appointments will be scheduled to monitor the healing process and address any concerns. The excision treatment aims to remove the lesion effectively, promote healing, and optimize cosmetic outcomes. By closely following Dr. Warner’s instructions, you can expect a supportive and efficient experience.
