Oculoplastic surgeons are ophthalmologists who specialize in plastic and reconstructive surgery of the periorbital and facial tissues including the eyelids, eyebrows, forehead, cheeks, orbit (bony cavity around the eye), and lacrimal (tear) system. Our doctors are trained in oculoplastics to do a variety of eyelid and facial surgery for adults and children. Oculoplastic surgeons are board certified ophthalmologists who have specialized training in taking care of the tissues and bones that support and enhance the normal function of the eyes. They perform cosmetic and reconstructive surgery around the eyes and mid facial region.
Common Candidates For Oculoplastics
The field of oculoplastics may not be familiar to some. However, with casual observation you may find children or adults with eyelid problems. These include baggy or droopy eyelids, tearing, eyelid malpositions (turning out, turning in, or retracted), bulging eyes, eyelid twitching, or a mass (mole, lump, or inflammation) of the eyelid.
