Oculoplastic surgery is a highly specialized field of ophthalmology that focuses on the delicate tissues surrounding the eyes and their connection to both aesthetics and functionality. This intricate discipline combines the precision of ophthalmology with the artistry of plastic surgery to address a wide range of conditions affecting the eyelids, orbit (eye socket), and tear duct system. Whether you seek to improve the appearance of your eyes or require medical intervention to correct a functional issue, oculoplastic surgery offers transformative solutions.
Conditions We Treat with Oculoplastic Surgery
- Blepharoplasty: Eyelid surgery is designed to rejuvenate the appearance of the eyelids, reducing puffiness, sagging, and wrinkles.
- Ptosis Repair: Ptosis is characterized by drooping upper eyelids that can interfere with vision. Oculoplastic surgery can lift the eyelids to restore proper alignment.
- Tear Duct Surgery: Procedures like dacryocystorhinostomy (DCR) can repair blocked tear ducts, relieving excessive tearing and discomfort.
- Orbital Fracture Repair: Oculoplastic surgeons can reconstruct orbital fractures to restore the eye’s normal position and function.
- Eyelid Lesion Removal: Oculoplastic surgeons remove and repair lesions on the eyelids, often related to skin cancer.
- Brow Lift: A brow lift can correct a drooping or furrowed brow, creating a more youthful and refreshed appearance.
What is the most common oculoplastic surgery?
- Cosmetic Enhancement: Oculoplastic surgery can enhance the aesthetics of the eye area, addressing concerns such as eyelid drooping, under-eye bags, excess skin, and wrinkles. Popular procedures include blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery), brow lifts, and BOTOX treatments.
- Reconstructive Procedures: Oculoplastic surgeons can repair and reconstruct eyelid and orbital structures damaged due to trauma, skin cancer, or congenital abnormalities. These surgeries aim to restore both appearance and function.
- Functional Improvement: Oculoplastic surgery often plays a vital role in improving eye function. Procedures can alleviate conditions like ptosis (drooping eyelids), which can obstruct vision, or manage tear duct disorders that lead to excessive tearing or eye irritation.
- Treatment of Orbital Conditions: Oculoplastic surgeons are trained to diagnose and manage conditions affecting the eye socket, including tumors, fractures, and inflammations.
