What is an oculoplastic surgeon?

Oculoplastic surgery is a subspecialty of ophthalmology that focuses on the surgical and non-surgical treatment of conditions that affect the eyelids, orbits, and tear ducts. An oculoplastic surgeon is a specialist who has completed additional training in this field, and has the unique qualifications and expertise needed to perform these complex procedures.

When considering surgery for eyelid or facial cosmetic issues, it is important to know that the benefits of having surgery with an oculoplastic surgeon are many. The following are some of the advantages of choosing an oculoplastic surgeon over a regular plastic surgeon:

  • Expertise: Oculoplastic surgeons have specialized training and experience in the delicate structures around the eyes. They understand the intricacies of the eyelids, orbits, and tear ducts, and are well-versed in the surgical techniques that are used to correct eyelid and facial cosmetic issues.

  • Safety: Because oculoplastic surgeons are experts in the anatomy and function of the eyes and surrounding structures, they are able to perform procedures with a high level of precision and safety. This reduces the risk of complications and improves the overall outcome of the surgery.

  • Natural-looking results: Oculoplastic surgeons are experts in creating natural-looking results. They take great care to preserve the natural contours and movement of the eyelids, which helps to avoid a "operated" look.

  • Understanding of vision: Oculoplastic surgeons also have a thorough understanding of how vision works and how eyelid and facial surgeries can affect it. They will take all necessary steps to ensure that your vision is not compromised and that any vision-related issues are addressed in the surgery.

  • Comprehensive care: Oculoplastic surgeons provide comprehensive care for their patients. From the initial consultation to the post-operative care, they will be with you every step of the way, ensuring that you have a positive experience and the best possible outcome.
