While it is tempting to reconstruct any lower lid defects.
Sometimes spontaneous granulation (lassiez-faire) may produce a better
result than any reconstruction can achieve. This is especially true if
the lower lid defect is shallow. The following pictures illustrate such
||Lower lid defect following Moh's
for diffused basal cell carcinoma. The

||The appearance of the lower
lid three weeks later. Despite being left to granulate spontaneously, the
contour of the lid is good. The lack of eyelashes in the lower lid is of
no great cosmetic consequence compared with their losses in the upper lid.
||The eye closure is satisfactory
without ocular exposure.
