Eyelid procedures can drastically improve the appearance of your eyelids. Some will have the procedure performed for cosmetic reasons, whereas others will have it performed in order to correct some type of issue with the eyelid. A procedure performed for the latter reason is known as eyelid reconstruction.
Eyelid reconstruction may be used to address a number of different problems with the eyelids. It can be used for chalazion removal, mole removal or scar revision, just to name a few examples. It can be performed on just one eyelid, or it can be performed on both eyelids, depending on the unique situation.
Eyelid reconstruction is not one-size-fits-all. Each procedure is customized for the patient based on their wants and needs. During a consultation at our office, you can learn more about how this procedure can help you. We can also determine whether or not you qualify for eyelid reconstruction.
The first qualification a person needs to meet for eyelid reconstruction is to be physically and emotionally healthy. A physically healthy individual is not going to have a medical condition that is going to make it difficult for them to heal. Additionally, a good candidate must be emotionally healthy. An emotionally healthy individual understands the limitations of the procedure and realizes that it is not going to change who they are. A person who is emotionally healthy will not strive to have the procedure done because they want to impress others.
Before we decide that eyelid reconstruction is right for you, you will need to sit down and talk to our doctor about the condition that is troubling you. Our surgeon is going to look at your facial anatomy and then talk to you about the options that you have available. To be a good candidate for eyelid reconstruction, you must be willing to adhere to the guidelines laid out by our doctor with the goal of ensuring that the end results are the best they possibly can be.
