Abstract

BACKGROUND:

Skin cancers of the periocular tissue present formidable reconstructive challenges because of anatomic complexity, vital function, and cosmetic significance.

OBJECTIVE:

To review eyelid anatomy and reconstructive techniques from an oculoplastic surgery perspective.

RESULTS:

Eyelid structure and function are intimately linked, and good working knowledge is a prerequisite for successful reconstructive efforts. We discuss periocular anatomy, patient evaluation, and single-stage repair of both anterior lamellar and full-thickness defects.

CONCLUSION:

Despite the challenges of periocular skin cancer reconstruction, excellent cosmetic and functional results can be achieved with appropriate technique.
