Oculoplastic Procedures

Corrective treatment for eyelid, eye socket
and tear drainage disorders

Oculoplastic surgeons are Eye surgeons (Ophthalmologists) who have specially trained in plastic & reconstructive surgery of the eyelids, eye socket (orbit), tear drainage apparatus (lacrimal system)  and face, pertaining to the forehead & cheeks (peri ocular structures).

Oculoplastic Surgeons have unique skills to diagnose & treat conditions that affect the eye & eyelids, as they are trained to understand the anatomy & function of the delicate eyelid tissues & their surrounding structures.

They are experts in performing aesthetic/ cosmetic procedures such as eyelid  lifts (blepharoplasty), brow lifts,  and Restylane and Toxin injections for facial rejuvenation.

Common oculoplastic procedures include diagnosing & treating droopy eyelids (ptosis), saggy eyelids (ectropion/entropion), watery eyes due to tear duct obstructions (DCR), and removing tumors in and around the eyes and eye socket.

Oculoplastic surgeons in UK have a professional society called the British Oculoplastic Surgey Society (BOPSS), which helps maintain a high standard of care.
