Formal surgical repair of the area is not always necessary to restore functional integrity and provide a cosmetically acceptable outcome; the 'laissez-faire' approach, where no attempt to surgically close the defect may be acceptable for smaller defects, particularly those at the lateral canthus. The wound will usually heal within a few weeks with minimal sequelae but, used injudiciously, it may result in cicatricial ectropion (scar-induced everted eyelid) resulting in a watering eye, lagophthalmos, corneal exposure or medial canthal 'webbing.' Formal surgical reconstruction is, therefore, frequently required, utilising flaps of mobilised healthy tissue adjacent to the area of excision to repair the defect.
