Patients typically receive reconstructive eyelid surgery to restore their eyelid function or alter their appearance. This type of procedure can be performed on many parts of the body, and reconstructive eyelid surgery is no exception. Sometimes, reconstructive eyelid surgery is performed to help the patient maintain a youthful appearance. Other times, it is necessary because one or both eyelids may have undergone trauma that affects both function and appearance.
There are many reasons why a patient might consider reconstructive eyelid surgery. Trauma and tumor removal are the two most common reasons reconstructive eyelid surgery could become necessary. The extent of the surgery depends on the extent of the injury, and Dr. Pacheco will discuss the procedure in more detail with you depending on the results you desire.
When most people think of reconstructive surgery, they think of extensive repairs to the affected area. Depending on one’s particular situation, this may or may not be the case. For example, there are times when the area that requires treatment extends throughout the whole eyelid. When this is the case, it may be necessary to take tissue from another part of the body to reconstruct the eyelid. These procedures are commonly referred to as skin grafts.
Other procedures simply require using tissue adjacent to the area that needs repair. This tissue can be pulled over the injured area. These types of procedures, called flaps, are done when fewer repairs are needed.
Sometimes, a traumatic event to the eyelid can dramatically impact its appearance. In cases like these, both the eyelid’s function and appearance may be affected. For this type of situation, reconstructive eyelid surgery is usually necessary to restore the eyelid to normal.
Other types of procedures do not require the extensive repairs that commonly come to mind when we hear the words “reconstructive surgery.” One such example is a procedure called blepharoplasty. This is done when a patient wants his or her eyes to look more youthful. It also restores lift to sagging eyelids, which can actually interfere with vision if they fall far enough to block the eye.
Whether you have had an injury that has left one of your eyelids impaired or would like to give your face a fresher, more youthful appearance, consider scheduling an appointment with Dr. Pacheco to discuss your available options. If reconstructive eyelid surgery is needed, the details of your procedure will depend on the extent of the repair, your health, and your desired results. We will go over your concerns with you and develop a plan directly tailored to your needs.

I have nothing but the most outstanding of praise for the staff and Doctor Pacheco for the professional treatment and the kindest of care during my surgery and aftercare. I will be returning soon to take more years of my face. I was treated with total respect and dignity and highly recommend all to go here and feel, you are in the best of care. A special shout out to Shelley Robinson, who really put me at ease throughout my procedure and today as well.

Heartfelt thanks to Dr. Pacheco and her very professional and caring staff. I have been a patient as of 2019 when I sought help to correct some facial issues and asymmetry due to a medical condition. For years I had felt that nothing significant could be done but then I was referred to Dr. Pacheco’s practice. She suggested a number of procedures—thermage, Botox and fillers—and proceeded cautiously and conservatively at each step. I have been amazed and delighted with the improvements that have been made! My confidence and self image have greatly improved. Many, many thanks again to all at Adoro!
