Eyelid Reconstruction Plastic Surgery
The eyelids are extremely delicate yet essential for protecting the eyes and our vision. They are also a vital component of our appearance. When an eyelid is damaged or injured, it requires specialized surgical techniques to restore the function and form. Our experienced facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon, Dr. Lesley Rabach, at LM Medical NYC, offers eyelid reconstruction plastic surgery for those with eyelid injuries.
The eyelids can be damaged from a wide variety of injuries and health conditions. Trauma can cause damage to both the lower or upper eyelids, tearing tendons, nerves, skin and other components. Aging also impacts the function of the eyelids. Conditions, like entropion or ectropion, can cause the lower eyelid to turn in or out. One of the most common causes of eyelid damage is skin cancer. Mohs surgery may be required to remove eyelid skin and tissue that contains cancer cells, leaving the eyelid disfigured.
Restoring Eyelid Form and Function
Eyelid reconstruction plastic surgery is very complex and intricate. The eyelids are small and thin with nerves, tendons, fat and skin that contribute to their movement and appearance. Dr. Lesley is a double board certified facial plastic surgeon with extensive experience and skill in reshaping the delicate areas around the eyes. This can include restoring the natural movement of the eyelid, as well as shaping the tissue and using skin grafts if necessary, to recreate the eyelid appearance.
The eyes are such an important part of your facial appearance, as well as your vision. If you have suffered an injury or health condition that has impacted the function or appearance of the eyelids, contact us at LM Medical NYC.
