Reconstructive Surgery

“She truly cares for her patients.”

She is a perfectionist which makes me feel confident to have her as my physician. She performed an eyelid surgery on my father and he looks great.

Types of Surgeries

orbital fractures

A fracture of the orbital floor doesn’t always need to be repaired but when it results in double vision, sinking in of the eyeball then almost always it should be repaired.

eyelid skin cancer

Eyelid skin cancer must be excised by surgeons who specialize in a particular surgical technique, such as Mohs surgeons and in some cases Oculoplastic surgeons. Once a dermatologist completes the Mohs surgery, Dr. Roya will then perform the eyelid reconstruction either in the office of the operating room. 

eyelid Skin lesions

Lesions such as cysts, skin tags, bumps, chalazions (styes) and other benign lesions of the eyelids can also be removed or drained in the office under local anesthesia with little to no downtime after these procedures.

ENUClEATION/
EVISCERATION

Both types of surgeries are similar such that the whole eye or most of the structures of the eye are removed in order to allow for the reconstruction of the socket with the placement of an implant. The implant is placed deep within the socket to replace the volume of the eye.

FAQ

Most frequent questions and answers
Orbital fractures mainly occur from trauma such as car accidents, falls, and assaults. The orbit is comprised of multiple bones that contain the eyeball and other important contents that allow us to see and move our eye. The floor of the orbit is the thinnest bone and is most prone to injury. A fracture of the orbital floor doesn’t always need to be repaired but when it results in double vision, sinking in of the eyeball then almost always it should be repaired.
The surgery involves exploration of the fracture and repairing it with an implant. Often, the orbital fractures may involve other facial bone fractures and injuries and Dr. Roya will work with a team of surgeons to address all the injuries that need to be repaired.
Skin cancers and benign tumors often occur on the eyelids. Because of the thin skin of the eyelid and its complicated anatomy, Oculofacial plastic surgeons should always be reconstructing the remaining defect. Cysts, skin tags, bumps, chalazions (styes) and other benign lesions of the eyelids can also be removed or drained in the office under local anesthesia. There is usually no downtime after these procedures.
The most common skin cancers that occur on the eyelids are basal cell carcinoma and squamous cell carcinoma. It is important to have any new eyelid bumps examined because skin cancers can often be mistaken for benign lesions. Melanoma can also occur on the eyelid and any new pigmented lesions should be examined and treated if necessary.

Eyelid skin cancer must be excised by surgeons who specialize in a particular surgical technique, such as Mohs surgeons and in some cases Oculoplastic surgeons. Mohs surgery is a microscopically controlled surgery used to treat common types of skin cancer and it is one of the many methods of obtaining clean margins during removal of a skin cancer using frozen section histology. Once a dermatologist completes the Mohs surgery on the patient, Dr. Roya will then perform the eyelid reconstruction either in the office of the operating room.

Due to some ocular condition, some blind eyes can become too painful or disfiguring. Dr. Roya will examine your eye and the surrounding tissue to determine if you are a candidate for an enucleation or an evisceration. Both types of surgeries are similar such that the whole eye or most of the structures of the eye are removed in order to allow for the reconstruction of the socket with the placement of an implant. The implant is placed deep within the socket to replace the volume of the eye.
