Oculoplastics

See, look, and feel better with surgical and non-surgical solutions

What is Oculoplastic Surgery?

Oculoplastic surgery includes cosmetic and reconstructive (medical) surgeries of the eyelid, face, orbit (eye socket) and tear drain system. There are also non-surgical solutions which include Botox and Dysport, dermal fillers, and injectables.

Who needs an Oculoplastic surgeon?

With age, the skin of the eyelids thins and stretches resulting in excess skin. Fatty tissues around eyes also become more prominent. For some, the result is a look of constant fatigue and age beyond their years. For others, the stretched eyelid skin can block the upper field of vision. Similarly, lower eye bags, puffiness, and dark pigmentation can cause a tired appearance. Through cosmetic outpatient upper and lower blepharoplasty and ptosis procedures, the eyelids can be restored for a more rested youthful appearance and improve the field of vision. More severe cases may require outpatient reconstructive surgery to elevate the eyelid to restore a full field of vision and provide symmetry of the eyelids. Other needs for reconstructive oculoplastic care include eyelid conditions that cause tearing, discomfort, and damage to the cornea; eye socket trauma and tumors; orbital decompression caused by thyroid or Graves’ disease; blocked tear ducts; and eyelash abnormalities.

What conditions can be improved through oculoplastic care?

  • Drooping eyelids
  • Lower eyelid bags
  • Lid retraction
  • Blocked tear ducts
  • Eyelash abnormalities – Trichiasis
  • Rolled out eyelid – Ectropion
  • Rolled in eyelid – Entropion
  • Orbital fractures
  • Orbital decompression – Thyroid or Graves’ Disease
