Oculoplastic surgery encompasses a variety of procedures that deal with the (reconstruction around the eye), the orbit (eye socket), eyelids, tear ducts, and the face. Procedures performed include those that improve sight and function of the eye as well as cosmetic procedures that enhance appearance.
We are a medical facility that incorporates treatments that include browlifts, eyelid surgery, laser skin resurfacing, Botox and the latest FDA approved fillers, tear duct surgery and orbital surgery.
Performed by Premier Medical’s board-certified ophthalmologists, these procedures include:
- Eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty) – Designed to correct excess, drooping skin and fatty tissue that surrounds the eyes.
- Brow Lifts – A procedure that restores a more youthful, refreshed look to the area above the eyes. The procedure corrects drooping brows and improves the horizontal lines and furrows that can make a person appear angry, sad or tired.
- Botox and Fillers – Non-surgical alternatives that combat the aging process
The field of Oculoplastics combines advanced training in ophthalmology with specialization in plastic or reconstructive surgery.
We suggest that all of our clients set up a consultation to review your specific needs and areas of concern.
Common surgeries include:
- Blepharoplasty – Blepharoplasty is a procedure to remove excess skin from the upper lids. It is often performed to correct a condition called dermatochalasis, which is commonly seen in middle-aged and elderly people.
- Ptosis Repair – Ptosis is an abnormal drooping of the upper eyelid caused by a weakening of the lid muscle as you age. It can affect one or both eyes and may grow more or less severe during the day.
- Tear Duct Surgery – Tear duct surgery, dacryocystorhinostomy (DCR) or Jones tube placement (artificial tear duct), is performed to repair a blockage of the tear duct that can cause excessive watering or recurrent infections.
- Orbital Surgery – Surgery within the bony portion of the eye socket to reposition the bones or remove tumors that may occur within the socket. A procedure called orbital decompression corrects the appearance of protruding eyes often caused by Graves’ disease or hyperthyroidism.
