There are several potential causes of eyelid damage, including trauma, skin cancer, genetics and the effects of the sun. Plastic surgery can correct most of these issues that cause you distress or lack of confidence.
The lower and upper eyelids may benefit from procedures such as harvesting tissues from other parts of the body for transplant. The aim of such surgeries is to repair damage to the eyelids without impacting function or leading to loss of sight.
Eyelid Cancer Treatment
About 90% of malignant eyelid cancers are basal cell carcinoma. This type of cancer will not spread to lymph nodes or internal organs, but it can cause damage to the eyelids. Squamous cell carcinoma, on the other hand, can spread beyond the eyelids and cause significant health issues almost anywhere in the body.
Although relatively rare, malignant melanoma in the eyelids is another condition that can change the appearance of eyelids. It is recommended that this type of tumor be removed by a qualified physician. Sebaceous cell carcinoma is another rare type of eyelid cancer that requires treatment and follow-up care. There is a risk of the cancer spreading to lymph nodes and other parts of the body.
