Eyelid Reconstruction

Eyelid reconstruction is required after removal of eyelid tumours.

The process involves rebuilding the various components of the eyelids to form a functional and aesthetic result. A wide variety of techniques should be at the disposal of your Oculoplastic Surgeon from judging when your eyelid is able to heal itself (the technique of ‘laissez faire’) to grafting and flap techniques. A detailed knowledge of the anatomy of the eyelids is required to deliver an optimal outcome.

Mr Saha has written a chapter on this subject in a textbook aimed at educating Plastic and Oculoplastic Surgeons – Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery: Approaches and Techniques.
