Oculoplastic

We Offer The Best Treatment Options For You.

What Is Oculoplastic Surgery?

Oculoplastic surgery (also called oculo-facial surgery) is reconstructive or cosmetic surgery that treats the areas around the eye and eyebrows, cheeks, orbit (bony cavity around the eye) and the lacrimal or tear producing structures.

Our eyes are one of the most important vital structures we have in our body. In addition to the essential function of providing us with clear, unobstructed vision, the eyes, including the eyelids, may be the first things people notice about your face. This makes the eyes and eyelids one of the most important factors of an appealing facial expression and aesthetic appearance. Visible changes in the shape or size of the eye areas can spoil the look of your face.

ARE YOU A CANDIDATE?

You may want to consult with an Oculoplastic Surgeon if you:

Have drooping or tired upper eyelids

Do not like the way your eyes look

Are concerned about wrinkles around your eyes

Tear all the time

Are concerned about a growth on your eyelids

The objective of Oculoplastic surgery

Whether your needs are to restore function or improve the look of the eyes and surrounding facial areas, your experienced board-certified Atlantic Eye ophthalmologist with advanced training in oculofacial surgery will provide you with a full understanding of your options.


CONDITIONS TREATED BY OCULOPLASTIC SURGERY

What does an Oculoplastic Surgeon Do?

Our oculofacial plastic surgeons have advanced and specialized training that allows for surgical correction of:

  • Functional or malposition eyelids
  • Eyelid turning in (entropion)
  • Eyelid turning out (ectropion)
  • All aspects of eyelid reconstruction (both traumatic repair and post eyelid cancer removal)
  • Tumors of the eyelid, both benign and malignant
  • All aspects of tearing
  • Abnormal tear drainage
  • Blocked tear duct
  • Facial droop (Bell’s Palsy)

  • All aspects of filler and wrinkle treatments (Botox, Dysport, Xeomin, Restylane, Juvederm, and Sculptra)

Eyelid conditions

Many eyelid conditions and some tearing problems can be corrected without surgery. Eyelid structures can be affected by normal aging changes, birth defects, injuries and inflammation. Oculoplastic specialists also have unique interest in dry eyes, especially as it relates to the eyelids. Since many of the complications seen in eyelid surgery do affect the eyes, an oculoplastic surgeon is best trained to handle these problems.
