Skin cancer is very common on the eyelid and adjacent facial skin. There are three important principles when treating eyelid skin cancers: complete removal, reconstruction/restoration of lid function and a satisfactory cosmetic result. Due to the very delicate nature of the tissue surrounding the eye, and the proximity of this tissue to the eye itself, it is crucial to have an expert involved in removing any lesions on the eyelid.
An oculoplastic specialist like Dr. Matthew Hauck has the expertise necessary to ensure proper lid reconstruction that provides normal eyelid function. This will protect your eye and maintain your healthy vision—all with an acceptable cosmetic result.
