Patients can lose a significant amount of eyelid structure due to trauma, or even a routine cancer surgery. This loss can create an imbalanced look-but, more importantly, it can impede an eyelid’s proper function, which in turn can create problems for the eye itself.
Dr. Zoran Potparic offers meticulous eyelid reconstruction in Fort Lauderdale, where he uses tissue that’s typically taken from the surrounding area-the other eyelid-as necessary.
