Reconstructive eyelid surgery may be undertaken in a variety of situations, including after trauma or tumor removal that results in defects in the eyelid.
Simple, superficial eyelid defects. Occurring after minor trauma or removal of small growths, these defects often require local wound care and possibly a few sutures.
Larger defects. Resulting from traumatic injuries, the removal of larger growths, or skin cancer, these may extend through the entire eyelid. Larger defects may be sutured together directly or may require more complex reconstructions. In complex reconstructions, an eye surgeon will transfer adjacent tissue or perform skin grafts to complete the reconstruction.
The upper eyelid serves an important role in the global protection of the eye, which requires appropriate coverage by the eyelids as well as adequate tear lubrication. The most common reason for upper eyelid reconstruction is defects due to the resection of malignant cancerous growths, although thyroid disease can cause a retraction of the eyelid, causing the eye to become injured with poorly performing eyelids.
The goal of eyelid reconstruction is to:
- Provide adequate eyelid function.
- Afford global protection.
- Achieve acceptable aesthetic results.
