Oculoplastic surgery, or ophthalmic plastic surgery, is a specialized branch of plastic surgery; oculoplastic surgeons are ophthalmologists who have completed up to two additional fellowship years to train in optical reconstruction and surgeries involving the eyelids, tear ducts, and facial area surrounding the eye. Ophthalmic plastic surgery includes surgery for the eyelids, orbital fracture repair, orbital tumors, and tear duct repair.
Oculoplastic Surgeries Include:
- Blepharoplasty: Contouring of the upper eyelids through the removal of excess skin and/or fat tissue. Upper lid blepharoplasty is performed to carefully remove the unwanted skin and/or fat tissue on the upper lid. Lower eyelid blepharoplasty focuses on the treatment of dark circles and eyelid ‘bags’ under eyes.
- Ptosis Repair: A procedure wherein the edge of the eyelid is elevated and repositioned, creating a rivitalized look.
- Brow Lift: The repositioning of a low, sagging brow to tighten skin around the eye.
