Oculoplastic Surgeons Enhance Your Beauty and Eye Health 

Question: Who are oculoplastic surgeons?

Oculoplastic surgeons are ophthalmologists – your qualified eye doctor – with additional, highly specialised training in plastic and reconstructive surgery of the tissues surrounding your eye.

The expertise of subspecialised surgeons allows you to correct functional and aesthetic issues affecting your eyelids, eye socket, tear ducts, and facial area surrounding your eye while ensuring the health and function of the eyes are maintained or enhanced.

Question: What are the common conditions for which oculoplastic surgery is recommended?

Here’s a quick list:

  • Facial trauma causing lacerations on your eyelids or fractures around it
  • Blocked tear ducts which lead to chronic watery eyes and infections
  • Drooping eyelids that impair vision resulting from either excess skin or weakened muscles responsible for opening your eyes
  • Entropion and ectropion conditions where your eyelids turn inward or outward and cause discomfort and eye damage
  • Puffy eye bags and weakened eyebrow muscles that affect vision and make you look older or constantly tired
  • Bulging eyes that push your eyeball forward

Each of these conditions affects how we see the world and how the world sees us. 

Question: What is the benefit of oculoplastic surgery? 

Besides improved vision and eye comfort, your appearance will also experience a positive transformation and significantly improve your quality of life.
One example is eyelid surgery (technical term: blepharoplasty) which will remove excess skin and fat from around your eyes, resulting in a more youthful and rested appearance while also reducing any obstruction of vision caused by those droopy eyelids. 

Question: Why choose an oculoplastic surgeon?  

You get the best of both worlds! Firstly, your cosmetic surgery is done by a surgeon who is also a highly trained eye doctor, so there is no compromise on eye health and secondly, 
because they are eye doctors first, they can treat underlying conditions affecting your eyes. So, you get the transformation in appearance and improvement in your vision and eye comfort!  

All the visionary deets summed up:

Choosing a good oculoplastic surgeon for your cosmetic eye surgery is key for your long-term vision and eye function.
