If you’re concerned about a suspicious growth on an eyelid or eye area, were diagnosed with eyelid cancer, or are looking for reconstructive surgery after cancer excision, board-certified oculofacial plastic surgeon Dr. Flora Levin can provide the necessary care and treatment.
How to Diagnose Eyelid Cancer
If a suspicious growth is present, an in-office biopsy is often done to establish the diagnosis, as malignant lesions may mimic benign ones and vice versa.
When necessary, Dr. Levin collaborates with experienced local dermatologists to ensure the best possible results are achieved.
How to Treat Eyelid Cancer
Complete excision is necessary to ensure the lowest chance of recurrence. Reconstruction of the defect following tumor excision can be straightforward or highly challenging. The importance of specialized training in this area cannot be understated, as a poor result can affect not only appearance but also cause pain, discomfort, infection, and vision loss.
