Eyelid Reconstruction

Eyelid reconstruction is a very common procedure performed in plastic surgery because of the complexity and precision needed to effectively treat this area. The upper eyelid functions in the blink mechanism to help protect and lubricate the eye. The lower eyelid has a minor function in the blink mechanism, but acts more for tear maintenance on the eye. The goal of eyelid reconstruction is to preserve the form and the function of the eyelids. The complexity of the reconstructive procedure is related to the location, the thickness and the size of the eyelid defect. Dr. Trussler has significant experience in the reconstruction of the eyelid after Mohs surgery and after facial trauma.
