Oculoplasty

Oculoplastic surgery is a general term used to represent a variety of procedures that involve the orbit, eyelids, tear ducts, and the face. Ocular reconstructive surgery, aesthetic eyelid surgery, facial plastic surgery, and cosmetic procedures fall into this category.
Some types of oculoplastic surgery are considered both medically necessary and cosmetic. For instance, certain eyelid and periocular issues can affect a person's appearance as well as their vision, eye comfort, and eye health.
Before you can undergo such surgery, your surgeon will check with your insurance company to determine whether your procedure is covered. An oculoplastic surgeon is an ophthalmologist who has completed additional training that focuses on the management of eyelid abnormalities, tearing problems, and orbital disease.
Because of the potential out-of-pocket cost of an oculoplastic procedure for the patient, it is important that you ask your surgeon to thoroughly explain the benefits of your procedure.

Types of Oculoplastic Surgery

Oculoplastic surgery covers a wide range of procedures, including:

  • Eyelid surgery, including blepharoplasty and eyelid reconstruction, for ptosis, entropion, ectropion, and eyelid tumors
  • Tear duct surgery
  • Orbital surgery to manage thyroid and eye disorders, tumors, and trauma
  • Pediatric oculoplastic surgery to correct congenital defects and manage eye disorders in children
  • Eyebrow and forehead lifts
  • Facial rejuvenation (midface lift, lower face lift, facial implants)
  • Non-surgical treatments performed by oculoplastic surgeons include:
  • Skin rejuvenation (laser skin treatments, chemical peels, home skin care regimens)
  • Facial filler injections (Juvederm, Perlane, Restylane, Radiesse) to reduce wrinkles
