OCULOPLASTIC SURGERY EXPLAINED
Oculoplastic surgeons repair damage to problems with the eyelids, bones and other structures around the eyeball, and in the tear drainage system. They do medical injections around the eyes and face to improve the look and function of facial structures. It is important for the oculoplastic surgeon, or anyone performing orbital surgery, to have a strong understanding of vascular anatomy. In some cases, procedures are performed by doctors who specialize in head and neck surgery.
Common ophthalmic plastic procedures include:
- Upper Blepharoplasty — Removal of excess skin in the upper eyelids. Excess skin can sometimes interfere with peripheral vision.
- Lower Blepharoplasty — Removal of excess fat or “bags” in the lower lids. This does not interfere with vision and is considered a cosmetic procedure.
- Eyelid Reconstruction — Repair of droopy upper lids (ptosis), in-turning or out-turning eyelids (entropion/ectropion), improving eyelid closure, reconstruction after skin cancer removal or trauma.
- Dacryocystorhinostomy — Surgically forming a tear sac-nasal conduit to relieve a nasolacrimal/tear duct obstruction.
- Orbital Surgery — Surgical biopsy and management of tumors of the eye socket, repair of socket trauma.
Eyebrow and forehead lifts
- Facial rejuvenation (midface lift, lower facelift)
- Non-surgical treatments such as filler injections
Skin marking is often a crucial step in various oculoplastic procedures to guide the precise placement of incisions. Typically, these incisions are strategically positioned within natural skin creases, like the upper lid skin crease in blepharoplasty operations. In cases where anatomic structures allow, skin incisions are strategically located to ensure that resulting scars remain discreet and well-hidden.
Laser technology may be used for certain oculoplastic procedures, providing precise and controlled tissue removal.
