What is Eyelid Reconstruction?

During eyelid reconstruction, the eyelid is repaired or replaced following disease or damage. The procedure can also be performed to create a crease on the eyelid. If the procedure requires only a minor fix, skin from adjacent tissue is used. However, for more involved reconstruction, a skin graft might be taken from the opposite eyelid or the lower eyelid.

Also Known As:

  • Eyelid surgery
  • Blepharoplasty
  • Facial surgery

Conditions Treated with Eyelid Reconstruction:

Eyelid reconstruction is utilized to treat various types of eyelid damage.
