Oculoplastic Surgery at Eye Health Partners
Oculoplastics refers to surgical procedures designed to improve the function and appearance of the eyelids, skin and muscle tissue surrounding the eye, forehead and the whole face. Depending on the unique vision needs and aesthetic goals of each patient, our experienced surgeons might recommend and perform a combination of such procedures as blepharoplasty and/or brow lift. In addition, they also offer the minimally-invasive and effective Botox and Restylane treatments to provide subtle yet remarkable aesthetic enhancements.
Explore the other pages of our website to learn more about these and other facial cosmetic and vision procedures. However, only a personal consultation with one of our experienced eye doctors can help you determine if you could benefit from any of these treatments. They perform a detailed evaluation, discuss your goals and needs and develop a customized, comprehensive treatment plan.
Depending on your age, overall health and several other factors, our experienced oculoplastic surgeons might recommend one or more of the following procedures:
- Blepharoplasty. Blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery) is the most common treatment for ptosis, a condition where one or both upper eyelids become saggy and/or interfere with your vision. Our surgeons can correct the drooping eyelid(s) by tightening the underlying muscle tissue and removing the excess eyelid skin. In addition to improving vision, blepharoplasty can also greatly rejuvenate the appearance of your eyes.
- Brow Lift. Our skilled surgeons often perform brow lift in conjunction with blepharoplasty to further improve the appearance of the upper part of the patient’s face. Brow lift elevates the brow and can smooth the forehead skin. This procedure may become necessary when the weight of excess tissue or slackened muscles cause the eyebrows to droop and obstruct the range of vision. Brow lift is also an effective solution for deep forehead lines and unwanted furrows.
- Botox / Juvederm / Restylane. In addition to surgical treatments, our skilled doctors also offer several facial injectables, such as Botox, Juvederm and Restylane. These convenient, effective treatments can smooth fine lines, relax wrinkles and provide subtle, natural-looking aesthetic enhancements.
- Entropion/Ectropion Repair. As we age, the tissue around our eyes relaxes and loosens. This could result in an inward or outward turning eyelid. Eyelids that are not properly positioned can cause irritation, sensitivity and sometimes scarring if not corrected. Our skilled surgeons can perform an out-patient procedure to tighten the eyelid and return it to its normal position.
