Dr. Kalyam has extensive training and experience in trauma and reconstructive eyelid and facial surgery. Below are some of the services offered by the Key-Whitman Cosmetic Center:
Mohs Surgery Repair
Skin cancer may be diagnosed by taking a biopsy of tissue from the growth. Then, the lesion may be removed using a precision surgical technique which attempts to preserve the natural contours of the eye as much as possible. In some cases, growth or skin cancer removal is followed by reconstruction of the eyelid.
Fat and Stem Cell Transfer
Your own fat and stem cells can be harvested from areas of the abdomen and from above or behind the knee, then liquefied and carefully injected into areas of the face with wrinkles and hollowing.
Entropion is an eyelid condition that affects the upper or lower eyelid, making it roll inward. This condition may relate to the natural aging of the eyelid or breakdown in the strength of certain eyelid muscles. When the eyelid turns inward, tissue rubs the surface of the eye, causing redness, irritation, and sensitivity to wind and light. Untreated entropion may trigger excessive tearing or mucous discharge. The cornea may also be scratched and scarred over time.
Ectropion is an eyelid condition that affects the lower eyelid, making it roll outward away from the eye. The affected eyelid may also sag, exposing the eye and leading to dryness. Untreated ectropion can trigger chronic redness, pain, irritation, and tearing. Prolonged exposure can also wear down the corneal surface.
A chalazion is a blocked oil gland in the eyelid or lid margin that causes swelling and pain. It can be treated with warm compresses and medication, but sometimes Dr. Kalyam needs to express or drain the chalazion.
Treatment for Blocked Lacrimal Duct or DCR (dacryocystorhinostomy)
Excessive tearing may indicate a blocked tear duct. Kalyam is highly experienced in performing DCRs and treating blocked tear ducts.
