Eyelid Reconstruction Surgery
The eyes are such an important facial feature, both for vision and their impact on appearance and expression. When the eyelids are damaged due to skin cancer, disease or trauma, it can have a significant effect on the individual. Not only can vision be affected, but the facial expression and aesthetics can be changed. Our team at Maia Plastic Surgery in Tysons Corner, VA, offers exceptional eyelid reconstruction surgery to restore the form and function of the eyes for our patients.
Both the upper and lower eyelids are vulnerable to damage. These features protect the eyes and also have a large impact on the appearance of the eyes. While blepharoplasty (eyelid lift) is a type of plastic eyelid surgery to improve the cosmetic appearance of the eyelids, reconstructive surgery is much more complex. It requires restoring the muscle, tendon and nerve functions for the eyelids, as well as creating a beautiful appearance for the damaged eyelid.
Complex Oculoplastic Surgery
Dr. Munique Maia is a board certified plastic and reconstructive surgeon who has years of experience in her field. When eyelid reconstructive surgery is necessary due to trauma to the eye or damage from disease, she uses advanced techniques and methods to restore the functional aspects of the eyelid. This can include using skin and tissue grafting to rebuild the eyelid, as well as cosmetic reshaping to create a natural, beautiful eyelid for her patient. The goal is to restore the eyelid and eye area to full function and form if possible, giving the patient back their confidence in their appearance.
