Procedures - Eyelid Cancer / Mohs Reconstruction

Skin cancer can affect areas around the eye, including the eyelids. Basal cell carcinoma is the most common skin cancer to affect the eyelid. This is very common in regions with generous sun exposure, such as San Diego. The lower eyelid is the most common area around the eye that is affected by basal cell carcinoma. Dr. Iyengar works with highly qualified dermatologists to help diagnose and treat various skin cancers. This may involve working collaboratively with a Mohs surgeon to minimize the risk of recurrence and optimize the cosmetic outcome around the eyelid.
