Put simply, there is no other surgeon in San Diego that will spend the time to provide the most meticulous eyelid reconstruction after skin cancer or trauma than Dr. Iyengar. As the examples below will show, Dr. Srinivas Iyengar has been appropriately recognized by his physician (M.D.) peers for his expertise and passion in eyelid reconstruction. As the only practice in San Diego that puts eyelids back together every week, Dr. Iyengar is well-versed in the most current eyelid repair techniques that result in aesthetically pleasing results with minimal downtime. Those in the public eye who require reconstruction of their eyelid seek out Dr. Iyengar for this. His warm bedside manner complements more than a decade of experience reconstructing the most advanced skin cancers around the eyelid and upper face.
Dr. Iyengar has operated on Hollywood actors, professional athletes, plastic surgeons, dermatologists, and public officials. Our San Diego practice works with board-certified dermatologists in Southern California to provide a expert reconstruction of the eyelid after Mohs surgery. Mohs surgery is a process by which dermatologists remove skin cancer. Once the skin cancer around the eyelid is removed, reconstruction is performed by Dr. Iyengar. Our office coordinates this procedure with your dermatologist’s office. Optimal reconstruction by a specialist in this area protects the eye and provides an aesthetically pleasing result.
