Specialized Oculoplastic Surgery
Orbital & Tear Duct Surgery
The orbital socket is the part of the skull containing the eye and its associated structures (blood vessels, nerves and muscles). Fatty tissue surrounding these structures, including the eye, acts as a cushion—protecting against injury. Infections and disease can cause problems within the orbital socket. These disorders can ultimately affect the function of the eye.
Post Cancer Surgery & Eyelid Facial Repair
The body’s thinnest skin is located on the eyelid. Because the eyelids are so often exposed to sunlight, they are a common site for skin cancers including basal cell carcinoma, squamous cell carcinoma and melanoma. These cancers can be common and most often affect the eyelid margin—the area closest to the eye. Cancer can also occur closer to the lash line. Cancers located on the eyelid rarely cause symptoms, so any nodule or lesion that is seen growing on the lid should be evaluated.
Laser Eyelid Surgery
Signs of aging often show up around the eyes. Droopy eyelids, sags and bags can make you look tired, even when you feel wide awake. Eyelid surgery can restore that youthful appearance to your eyes by removing unwanted fat and excess skin from the eyelids, so you look younger and more awake. We use many approaches to address droopy eyelids and eyebrows.
Brow lifts can be performed with various techniques. Endoscopic or minimal-scar brow lift is an advanced technique performed with a tiny fiberoptic lens camera system inserted at the hairline. In most patients, this endoscopic approach allows for the brow to be lifted with less swelling, scarring, hair loss and downtime compared with the larger scalpel incisions of a traditional brow lift. Our surgeons also adjust the brow depressor muscles during surgery to reduce the power of frown muscles between the eyes for a better outcome.
