Surgical Removal of Eyelid Cancer

As an ENT, we have been trained to removed all sorts of cancerous and non-cancerous lesions of the face whether the cheek, lip, or even the eyelid! However, there are certain locations on the face where even if trained to remove such lesions and reconstruct the surgical defect, it is best left to be performed by experts even more specialized than ENTs.

The eyelid is one such location where lesions are best removed by the true experts known as "oculoplastic surgeons." Their background is more ophthalmology rather than ENT, but they undergo further plastic surgery training to address the soft tissues around the eye.

That said, here are 3 animations showing common ways eyelid cancer may be removed and reconstructed.
