Many surgical procedures dealing with eyelids after the removal of tumors or following any sort of trauma will heal properly on their own by caring locally for the wound. Depending on the circumstance, some procedures and accidents, however, might require an eyelid reconstruction procedure following the trauma or removal of cancerous tissue.
Due to the extremely delicate nature of the eyelids and eye area, our Spectrum Eye Physicians work in tandem with local Mohs surgeons in order to provide our patients with the highest quality care possible. A Mohs surgeon is a dermatologist specially trained in a procedure called Mohs micrographic surgery, a type of eyelid reconstruction surgery which involves intricately removing cancerous tissues and irreparably traumatized areas using a procedure which spares the greatest possible amount of healthy tissue. The Mohs surgeon then uses small flaps and grafts of tissue to in order to reconstruct the eyelid to properly functioning state.
If your eyelid has experienced trauma during an accident or if you have a cancerous tumor which will require removal, a bay area Ophthalmologist at Spectrum Eye Physicians can help you. Each of our five locations in San Jose, Cupertino, Santa Cruz, Los Gatos, and our San Jose surgical center is staffed with knowledgeable physicians who, working with a selection of local, experienced Mohs surgeons, can help you through the process of eyelid reconstruction surgery.
We encourage you to contact our office at 408-884-2215 to schedule an eyelid reconstruction consultation today.
