Mole Removal 22 – Keratosis Eyelid
Actual patients of Dr. Damon Chandler, Philadelphia Cosmetic Plastic SurgeonCase ID: 1329 - 64 year-old woman with Seborrehic keratosis of Eyelid
Keratosis mole removal – 64 year-old woman with Seborrheic keratosis of the eyelid. This unsightly growth was present for more than 6 months. The patient had discussed with many other physicians including her family doctor, eye doctor and dermatologist until she found Dr. Chandler for his expertise at this sort of extremely precise mole removal. She underwent an in-office excision of the left upper eyelid. It requires a delicate hand to work so near to the eyeball and to not leave any notch in the edge of the eyelid or disturbance of the eyelashes. Dr. Chandler routinely performs this kind of delicate plastic surgery and puts his patients at ease with his experience. It is understandable for a person to be worried to not have any injury to the eyeball itself during this surgery and that is precisely why this patient sought out Dr. Chandler. This mole was found to be a seborrheic keratosis, a benign growth of the skin that occurs with aging. The after plastic surgery photo is shown at 6 weeks following eyelid mole removal. She has a hint of residual swelling which will diminish within the next several months.
