Oculoplastic Eye Surgery

Oculoplastic surgery, also known as oculofacial plastic surgery or ophthalmic plastic and reconstructive surgery, is a subspecialty of ophthalmology that focuses on the surgical and non-surgical management of conditions affecting the eyelids, eyebrows, tear ducts, and orbit (the area around the eye). Oculoplastic surgeons are trained in both ophthalmology and plastic surgery and have specialized knowledge and skills in the anatomy and function of the eye and surrounding structures.

Some common procedures that may be performed as part of oculoplastic surgery include:

  • Blepharoplasty: surgery to correct drooping or excess skin on the upper or lower eyelids
  • Ptosis surgery: surgery to correct drooping of the upper eyelid
  • Eyelid reconstruction: surgery to repair or rebuild damaged or missing eyelid tissue
  • Brow lift: surgery to correct a sagging or low brow position
  • Orbital surgery: surgery to repair or reconstruct the bones and tissues in the orbit
  • Tear duct surgery: surgery to correct problems with the tear ducts, such as blockages or abnormalities

Oculoplastic surgery may be performed for cosmetic or functional reasons, or a combination of both. The specific details of the procedure will depend on the specific condition being treated and the goals of the surgery.
