Oculo-Facial Cosmetic and Plastic Surgery
Oculo-facial cosmetic and plastic surgery includes many procedures used to reconstruct and improve the area around the eyes. Depending on the procedure, the focus may be on the eyebrows, eyelids, nose, orbital bones, tear duct system, or another feature in the eye region. Very few plastic surgeons are trained in this specialized field, making it a particularly valuable resource at our East Los Angeles dentist office. Below, you can read more about the ways these treatments can help patients.
When tissues in and around the eyes are affected by trauma or a medical problem, oculo-facial cosmetic and plastic surgery may be necessary to correct appearance. In some cases, treatment may also normalize function and help preserve health over time. For instance, damage to the orbital bones, or eye sockets, must be addressed not only for aesthetic purposes, but also to ensure proper healing and normal functioning of the eyes and supporting tissues. Tumors in the eye region, eyelid drooping, and blocked tear ducts are a few other examples of situations where oculo-facial reconstructive surgery may be used.
Like other aesthetic surgery specialties, oculo-facial cosmetic and plastic surgery encompasses several procedures performed strictly to improve appearance. Brow lifts, eyelid lifts, and generalized facelifts all may be performed to eliminate signs of aging or simply enhance features around the eyes. The nose, being in close proximity to the eyes, may also be reshaped in oculo-facial procedures. In addition to improving skin, our surgeon may perform eyelash transplantation. Several minimally invasive procedures are also available, including popular fillers, such as Juvederm, Restylane, Perlane, and others.
For imperfections in the eye region caused by trauma, congenital abnormalities, disease, infection, or other causes, oculo-facial cosmetic and plastic surgery is available at our office. Many common plastic surgery procedures are offered under this specialty, but many others are specific to oculo-facial cosmetic surgery and offer functional improvements, as well as aesthetic benefits. With all of these treatments, our surgeon works to create natural-looking results.
