Ophthalmic Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery

Oculoplastic Surgery, or Eye Plastic Surgery refers to a very precise medical specialty that involves performing plastic surgery around the eyes and face. Our oculoplastic surgeons have a unique combination of plastic surgery and ophthalmology training. As a result, they are able to offer our patients both cosmetic and reconstructive oculoplastic surgery.

Ophthalmic Surgeons offers oculoplastic eye surgery to improve both appearance and function. As people age, the skin around their eyes naturally begins to wrinkle, sag, and bulge. This may interfere with vision or cause discomfort in some cases. In others, it simply makes the person look older and more tired. Our practice offers several solutions to the problems of aging skin and eyes.

Blepharoplasty

Blepharoplasty is eyelid surgery, in which the oculoplastic surgeon removes excess fat and skin through a tiny, inconspicuous incision. The incision is usually hidden either in the eyelid's natural crease, along the lower lash line, or on the inside of the lower lid. In any case, visible scarring is minimal, and the results can be astounding. This surgery may be done just to improve the appearance of the face but may also be recommended to improve vision.

Endoscopic Forehead Lift

Endoscopic Forehead Lift is a surgery performed to alter the position, contour, and wrinkling of the forehead and eyebrows. Time and gravity cause a drooping of the eyebrows that causes the upper eyelid to appear heavy. This surgery improves that heaviness as well as softening the wrinkle lines between the eyebrows.

Endoscopic Midfacelift

Endoscopic Midfacelift is a surgery performed through the lower eyelid and small endoscopic incisions to reposition the lower eyelid and cheek fat. As we mature, the fat of the lower eyelid protrudes and the cheek fat sinks. This results in the lower eyelids and cheeks having two protrusions with an indentation line between the two fat pockets. The midfacelift may be used in combination with lower eyelid blepharoplasty to smooth out the irregular contour.

Chemical Peels, Microdermabrasion and Laser Skin Resurfacing

Chemical Peels, Microdermabrasion and Laser Skin Resurfacing can be effective means of eliminating wrinkles, fading irregular pigmentation, and rejuvenating the skin. The CO2 laser, microdermabrasion, and chemical peels are safe for use around the eyes. Our surgeons will help you decide which of these options suits your individual needs and recovery time. You'll look younger and more attractive in no time!

Botox

Botox is a more conservative, temporary solution to the problem of wrinkles. This treatment is the most commonly performed cosmetic procedure in the United States. Botox is given as an injection to relax the muscles that create wrinkle lines. It not only treats what's there, but it also prevents new and deeper wrinkles from forming while the treatment is working. Botox can also be used to induce an incisionless browlift. This technique was first developed by one of our doctors.
