Botox/ Cosmetic Eyelid Surgery
Although some ophthalmology patients would not expect to see a plastic surgeon on staff, we at HVES know that some eye abnormalities would benefit from an Oculoplastic Surgeon’s touch.
An Oculoplastic Surgeon is an ophthalmologist who has completed rigorous additional training in plastic and reconstructive surgical techniques as it relates to the eye and surrounding structures. Therefore, disorders involving the eyelids, thyroid eye disease, ocular trauma, malfunctioning tear ducts, the presence of skin cancers around the eyelid, and the affected adjacent facial structure can all be addressed and repaired by an Oculoplastic Surgeon who is familiar with the ocular region.
Eyelid surgery, known as Blepharoplasty, is performed by making external incisions along the natural skin lines of the eyelids, such as the creases of the upper lids and below the lashes of the lower lids, or from the inside surface of the lower eyelid. These techniques allow for proper repositioning of the eyelids while hiding any evidence of a surgical procedure.
