Be sure to discuss these costs with your doctor before scheduling an oculofacial surgery procedure.
What is oculofacial surgery?
Oculofacial surgery, often referred to as facial plastic surgery, is a specialized type of plastic surgery that focuses on the correction of trauma to the face, eyelids, and orbit. The procedure can be used for cosmetic enhancement or reconstruction; to treat eyelid conditions such as ptosis (drooping), entropion (inverted eyelash/eyelid) and ectropion (outward turning of eyelid); or to correct defects in the eye socket. Oculofacial surgeons are specially trained in facial plastic surgery techniques used to repair and restore both normal and abnormal appearances of the ocular region.
What are some common oculofacial surgeries?
Common oculofacial surgeries can involve improving appearance, correcting defects in the eye socket, treating eyelid conditions, and restoring vision after an injury or disease. Examples of these procedures include eyelid lifts, brow lifts, correction of malpositioned eyelids (ptosis), blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery), orbital decompression (to create space for the eyeball), orbital fracture repair, and reconstruction of facial fractures. Additionally, surgeons may utilize tissue rearrangement techniques to restore function to facial features due to trauma or medical conditions.
