Abstract

Mohs micrographic surgery achieves high cure rates while preserving healthy tissue making it the optimal treatment for skin cancer. The goals of eyelid reconstruction after Mohs surgery include restoring eyelid structure and function while attaining acceptable aesthetic results. Given the variety of eyelid defects encountered after Mohs surgery, a thorough understanding of the complex eyelid anatomy as well as an in-depth knowledge of the numerous reconstructive techniques available are required to accomplish these reconstructive goals. In this article, the authors review eyelid anatomy and discuss a variety of techniques used for the reconstruction of defects involving the periocular region.
