Skin Cancer Surgery

Sydney Oculoplastic Surgeon and Ophthalmologist

Skin cancers around the eye are usually treated with surgery. Surgery involves complete excision of the lesion followed by reconstruction of the defect. Dr Eade uses different reconstructive techniques in order to restore the appearance and function of the eyelids.

Eyelid and periocular skin cancers

Most eyelid lumps or lesions are benign (non-cancerous) growths.
Cancer is an abnormal growth of cells.

Eyelid reconstruction after Mohs surgery

Mohs surgery is performed by dermatologists who have had specialised training in the technique.
A microscope is used to determine the extent and depth of the skin cancer.
Once the skin cancer has been removed, the defect is repaired by Dr Eade.
Mohs surgery is used to microscopically identify the extent of the skin cancer, therefore the excision of normal tissue is kept to a minimum.
The benefits of Mohs surgery are a smaller area of tissue loss and potentially a imper reconstruction.
Mohs surgery is more time consuming as the excision and repair cannot be performed in a single surgery. It also requires preoperative visits to the Mohs surgeon and Dr Eade.
