Mohs Micrographic Surgery is considered to be the gold standard for removing eyelid Basal Cell Carcinomas and some squamous cell carcinomas. When these skin cancers occur on the eyelid the most effective treatment approach is Mohs surgery followed by Oculoplastic reconstruction. If treated early and aggressively it has high cure rates.

One of the advantages of Mohs surgery is that it only removes the cancer, leaving behind as much normal tissue as possible, which is vital in preserving eyelid function and giving better cosmetic results. It also has a very low recurrence rate (less than one per cent), so we can offer reconstructive surgery with confidence.
