The kissing nevus is a rare form of congenital melanocytic nevus. We present a case of a 4-year-girl with kissing nevus on the right eyelids. As a treatment, we used a tissue expander. In the first operation, The 16 cc sized rectangular-shape tissue expander was inserted within the subcutaneous layer at the right zygomatic area. After expansion for 5 months, local advancement flap was performed for lower eyelid reconstruction, and interpolation flap was carried for the upper eyelid. The remnant interpolation flap was removed and trimmed after 3 weeks. We report here a rare case of the kissing nevus on the eyelids that showed good results after reconstruction using a tissue expander.
