The skin is the largest organ of the human body. Your skin protects all of your organs, muscles and bones and helps to regulate your body’s temperature. With all these obligations and complexities also comes the opportunity to develop a wide range of adverse conditions.
Treatment for skin cancer usually involves some type of surgery. One or a combination of procedures may be utilized to most effectively remove both cancerous and non-cancerous lesions.
Dr. Harris performs several types of eyelid surgeries depending on your needs. Blepharoplasty (BLEF-uh-roe-plas-tee) is the surgical removal of excess skin, muscle and fat of the upper eyelids. As you age, your eyelids stretch, and the muscles supporting them weaken. As a result, the excess skin can make you appear tired or actually block part of your vision. In some cases the edge of the upper eyelid falls down onto the pupil (ptosis). This can be repaired at the same time as a blepharoplasty.
