Understanding Eyelid Lesions

The key to treating your eyelid lesions lies in understanding their nature as thoroughly as possible. Eyelid lesions, as mentioned, can take many different forms. It can be nearly impossible to tell exactly which type of eyelid lesion you’re dealing with unless you make sure to visit an experienced surgeon who can perform an exam.

  • Benign Lesions are often the same color as your flesh, but they can be pigmented. These lesions are not typically painful, and they don’t usually cause very much discomfort. They can, however, bleed or be painful if they’re scratched.
  • Malignant Lesions can be colored in a number of ways: They are often black, brown, or red in color and can also change in appearance. They have a tendency to spread and can sometimes appear to be bloody, have a crusted appearance, or look somewhat like a scab. A more scaly surface is often another indicator that a lesion might be malignant. It’s worth noting that not all malignant lesions are necessarily cancerous. In either case, eyelid lesions are most effectively treated when they’re addressed as early as possible.

Treating Your Eye Lesions

Conservative Treatment

In some cases, eyelid lesions can be addressed with relatively conservative treatment. It’s still important to make sure that you visit with an expert who can properly diagnose you and inform you of the nature of your lesion. But if the lesion is benign and non-serious, then it may very well respond to conservative treatments like antibiotics or even a warm compress.

Surgical Intervention

Should you find that your lesion requires surgical intervention, you’ll be in the expert hands of one of the highly experienced plastic surgeons working at Elite Plastic Surgery. Surgical intervention for eyelid lesions typically involves surgical excision or a process known as curettage, which involves gently scraping away the lesion, layer by layer.
