Eyelid lesions are one of the most common referrals that we see at Rostami Oculo-facial Plastic Consultants. The most important classification for eyelid lesions is whether the lesion is benign or malignant.
It’s important that this classification be determined by a trained specialist. At times, a biopsy is necessary to determine the type of lesion.
Both benign and malignant lesions are removed by our highly trained surgeons. In some cases of malignant lesions, reconstruction of the eyelid by our surgeons is done to maintain the function and cosmesis of the eyelid.
Regardless of the type of eyelid lesion, evaluation by a trained specialist is imperative to determine the most appropriate management of the eyelid lesion.
