Eyelid Cancer Reconstruction
Eyelid cancer reconstruction surgery is common, as 10% of all skin cancers are some type of eyelid cancer. Dr. Amy Kulak, MD, and the rest of the team here are ready to help if you need eyelid reconstructive surgery in the North East Florida, area. We work with you every step of the way to ensure you are comfortable with the process.
What is Eyelid Cancer Reconstruction?
Eyelid cancers often affect the lower eyelid, but they can also affect other parts of the eyelid. This cancer can lead to bumps, pigmented growths, loss of eyelashes, or asymmetric eyelid appearance. For best results, timely diagnosis and proper treatment options are required. If you notice something strange or a bump on your eyelid, it’s best to speak with your doctor to ensure it’s not a tumor.
In order to ensure this cancer does not return, complete excision is necessary. This will lead to reconstruction surgery in order to restore the eyelid to its previous state. Without proper eyelid cancer reconstruction surgery, you can experience pain, discomfort, infection, vision loss, and a change in appearance.
If you are in need of eyelid cancer reconstruction surgery, Dr. Amy Kulak, MD, and our team are here to help. Going to an oculofacial plastic surgeon with years of training and experience can help ensure you get the results that you need. Mishandling this surgery can lead to complications down the line, including infection and, in extreme cases, loss of vision.
Our team will determine the proper course of action in order to ensure the surgery is successful, as is recovery. Following the surgery, you will have a post-op visit so Dr. Amy Kulak, MD, can check to make sure everything is going smoothly in the recovery process. We work to ensure you are comfortable during the entire process.
