Eyelid Lesion Removal

The vast majority of eyelid lesions are benign or harmless, but that doesn’t mean that no action is needed to remove the lesion. There are many reasons why eyelid lesions may pop up, and eyelid lesion removal surgery is common. If you are in need of eyelid lesion removal services, contact Dr. Amy Kulak, MD, and our team! We are ready to help you deal with your eyelid lesions.

What Is Eyelid Lesion Removal?

Eyelid lesions can be easily spotted, even by the untrained eye, and can even cause discomfort. However, a trained professional can also detect smaller lesions during a comprehensive eye examination. A doctor will examine your eyelids, lashes, and eyes to ensure no lesions require any attention. If a lesion is found, the next step will be ensuring the lesion is not cancerous. Below are some common benign eyelid lesions:

  • Seborrheic keratoses – This is a common benign tumor associated with aging
  • Papilloma – This tumor originates in the outer layer of the skin and is also associated with aging
  • Nevi – This is a benign neoplasm made up of overgrowth of melanocytes
  • Xanthelasma – This is a lesion of yellow plaque on the eyelids

Properly diagnosing the type of lesion can help doctors provide the appropriate treatment option. This helps remove the lesion as quickly as possible without much downtime or recovery time.

Lesion Removal Reconstructive Surgery

In most cases, benign eyelid lesions require no treatment and go away on their own over time. With that being said, the lesion can be surgically removed for cosmetic reasons or if it interferes with your vision. If your doctor believes the lesion may be cancerous, it’s important to remove the lesion as quickly as possible.

Eyelid lesion removal surgery is usually painless and requires no anesthesia. In fact, the process usually takes under 30 minutes to complete. No eyepatch is required after the surgery, and there is minimal downtime. You may experience slight bruising following the procedure, but there should be no significant discomfort.

Dr. Kulak did a fabulous job. She repaired a very large gaping hole where my mother’s eyelid wise. Dr. Kulak was able to do so without using a skin graft, which greatly shortened the recovery time. Now, my mother’s eyelid looks virtually the same even though about 75% of it was removed. We are extremely pleased with Dr. Kulak’s professionalism, attention to detail, concern and care. Highly... recommend her services.read more

After being referred to her by doctor Futch in Macclenny and a few visits finally decided to have it done and I am so thankful that I did. Doctor kulak is the best. You can’t even tell I have had surgery. Everyone in her office is supper sweet. Thank you to everyone in doctor kulak’s office... for making this experience an easy one 😊read more
