Eyelid surgery can be either cosmetic or reconstructive. Cosmetic surgery improves the appearance of the eyelids, while reconstructive surgery restores the eyelids’ function and normal appearance. It is often done after the eyelids have been damaged by disease, injury or birth defect. If you feel there is something about your appearance that is negatively impacting the area surrounding your eyes, it may be time to consider reconstructive eyelid surgery.
Scar revision is a class of surgical procedures designed to make scars less noticeable. Scars can affect your appearance by being a different color or texture from the surrounding skin. They can also be raised or recessed. Surgery can make scars narrower or it can make their texture and color more like the surrounding skin. A consultation with our team can help you understand reconstructive eyelid surgery options as well as setting realistic expectations for yourself and your results.
Moles appear as natural skin blemishes. They are typically bothersome, but they do have the ability to be bothersome. There are two common mole removal options, excision or excision with cauterization, and a member of our team can help you determine if either of these reconstructive eyelid surgery options could best benefit you and your goals.
There are several different ways to treat chalazion marks or benign bumps that are generally caused by blocked glands. When a gland gets blocked, the backed-up fluid forms a chalazion along the eyelid. These chalazion marks are usually harmless, but they can be frustrating. Sometimes, a chalazion will go away on its own and fade away over time. If a chalazion is stubborn and does not fade on its own or you have been unsuccessful at removing it with an at-home method, reconstructive eyelid surgery may be the next step for you.
