Default Eyelid Surgery

Hi everyone

As mentioned on my other post my daughter saw a specialist yesterday who has provisionally scheduled surgery to debulk her eyelid h - so she can open her eye wider. (They are not removing the whole H just seeing to the eyelid)

Has anyone had experience of this type of surgery? does it work? what can we expect?

Thanks

Lo x

Have oral steroids been offered as an option? My daughter had a very large hemangioma on her left eye, and 6 ml of Prednisolone daily cured it completely.

I would encourage you to contact Dr. Aaron Fay from ask the expert section of this site. He can give you a lot of information on debulking eyelid lesions. IT is important to get the eye open asap.
