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
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
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 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 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
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 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.
