What is Oculoplastic Surgery?
Ophthalmic plastic surgery, or oculoplastics, is a subspecialty of ophthalmology that deals with disorders of the eyelids, orbits (bones around the eyes), eyeball and lacrimal (tear) system.
What Conditions Can An Eyelid Lift or Brow Lift Correct?
Plastic surgery of the eyelids and the brow, can help patients see more clearly as well as look younger and rejuvenated. By removing excess tissue and tightening the skin, blepharoplasty (also known as an eyelid lift) and browlifts can not only increase the visual field but also "turn back time" by reducing the appearance of wrinkles, lines and sagging skin that make you look angry or tired. Oculoplastic surgery can also correct defects such as ptosis (droopy eyes) and dry eyes. These surgeries are typically performed as outpatient procedures with local anesthesia. Complications are rare.
