How Can I Treat Eyelid Cancer?

The most effective way for treating eyelid cancer is also the most straightforward: simply remove it. With modern techniques and technology, we can cut out eyelid cancer while minimizing any damage to the surrounding eyelid and its structures. However, you still need an expert to remove the tumor in a way to reduce any risk of regrowth or other complications. Dr. Shah Vira has already helped numerous patients get rid of eyelid cancer and restore their looks afterward. In some cases, the reconstruction can even leave you looking better than ever.

What Is the Procedure Like?

The typical eyelid procedure consists of two parts: cutting out the tumor and reconstructing the eyelid. Typically, we can do both of these during a single session while the patient is under anesthesia for comfort.

Removing the Tumor

Removing a tumor is about more than simply cutting away dangerous tissue, especially for the eyelids. The structures of the eyelid are so small and delicate that you need an expert’s touch in order to minimize any damage to them. Additionally, unless your surgeon removes the entire tumor, it can continue to cause problems. So you need someone who can do the most with the least amount of cutting or incisions.


The extent of eyelid reconstruction is often one of the biggest variables in eyelid treatment. Some patients may need almost no reconstruction while others may need an in-depth procedure to restore their eyelids. For eyelid reconstruction, you certainly want an eyelid specialist on your side. While many plastic surgeons offer eyelid surgery, they are not full experts in the field. Dr. Shah Vira focuses exclusively on the eyelid and brow area to provide safer and better results. The reconstruction process might even be able to provide some enhanced benefits to your eyelid area. You can fully discuss your options with your surgeon before the procedure and build a personalized reconstruction plan.

Recovery &

Most patients take about two weeks off for the initial recovery period for their eyelid cancer treatment. However, this depends on the extent of your procedure. For more minor surgeries, you may need less time off. Whatever your case may be, your eyelid cancer surgeon will provide you with both a timeline for your individual recovery as well as instructions to help it go well. Some pain and swelling are normal for the initial period, but we can prescribe you medication to manage these until they subside. Patients will also come in for follow-up visits so we can ensure that the procedure was a success and your healing is on track.
