Ophthalmic plastic surgery, or oculoplastics, is a subspecialty of ophthalmology that deals with disorders of the eyelids,face, orbits (bones around the eyes) and lacrimal (tear) system.
Plastic surgery of the eyelids and brow can help patients see more as well as look younger and rejuvenated. By removing excess tissue and tightening the skin, cosmetic and functional eyelid and brow surgery 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. It can also correct defects such as ptosis (droopy eyes). Lower eyelid and/or mid-face surgery can help correct the lower eyelid bags and folds around the mouth. This results in an improved cosmetic appearance and also help correct the functional problems of exposure of the eye and the symptoms of dryness and excessive tearing. These surgeries are typically performed as outpatient procedures with local anesthesia. Complications are rare.
