Oculoplastics & Cancer Care

An oculoplastic procedure is a type of surgery done around the eyes to correct a medical problem or for cosmetic reasons. Oculoplastic surgery combines the microsurgery of ophthalmology with the cosmetic principles of plastic surgery focusing on plastic and reconstructive surgery of the eyelids, tear ducts, and orbit, along with cosmetic surgery of the eyelids and brows. 

Oculoplastic procedures are usually done by ophthalmologists with special training in plastic or reconstructive surgery. Oculoplastic procedures may be done on the:

  • Eyelids
  • Eye sockets
  • Eyebrows
  • Cheeks
  • Tear ducts
  • Face or forehead

These procedures treat many conditions. These include:

  • Droopy upper eyelids
  • Eye problems caused by thyroid disease, such as Graves disease
  • Weakness around the eyes or eyelids caused by Bell palsy
  • Tear duct problems
  • Injuries to the eye or eye area
  • Cosmetic problems
  • Skin cancers or other growths in or around the eyes

Oculoplastic surgeons also perform aesthetic rejuvenation procedures on the face with Botox, and facial fillers like Juvederm and Radiesse.
