OCULOFACIAL PLASTIC SURGERY
Eye Plastic Surgery, also called Ophthalmic Plastic Surgery or Oculoplastic Surgery, is a subspecialty of Ophthalmology that deals with the evaluation and treatment of deformities, abnormalities, cancers and trauma of the eyelids, lacrimal or tear structures, the bony orbit and adjacent facial areas and overlying skin and soft tissue. Eye Plastic Surgery is a unique specialty that relies on the surgeon's technical expertise as well as his or her artistic skill and ability. Ophthalmic plastic surgeons perform cosmetic and reconstructive procedures in and around the delicate eye structures.
At The Washington Eye Institute in Maryland and D.C., our oculoplastic surgeon has trained as an Ophthalmologist as well as completed a Fellowship in Oculoplastic Surgery. Therefore. he is trained and experienced as both an eye physician and surgeon, and as a plastic surgeon as it relates to the eyes and their surrounding structures. He provides evaluation and treatment of adults and children with disorders of the eyelids and eye sockets including incorrect positioning of the eyelids called Entropion or Ectropion, droopy eyelids called Ptosis, cancer of the eyelids, fractures, inflammation and other conditions of the bony orbit, as well as evaluation and treatment of the tear drainage system.
As an Oculoplastic Surgeon, he provides a full range of facial cosmetic procedures to help patients look their best and minimize the effects of aging. These include Eyelifts, or Blepharoplasty, Brow Lifts and Midfacial Lifts as well as non-surgical treatments such as Botox® Cosmetic, Juvederm® and Restylane® to help smooth fine lines and wrinkles.
