Cosmetic & Reconstructive
The surgeons at Ophthalmology Associates are not only leaders in eye surgery but they are also experts in treating the delicate skin around the eyes and face. Ophthalmologists are trained to perform many different types of eyelid and eyebrow surgeries. Some of these surgeries may be medically necessary to improve the function of the eyelids or help the vision, and thus may be covered by insurance. Other times patients may desire eyelid lifts or eye brow lifts for cosmetic reasons. Also, there are a great many office treatments available to treat the aging skin.
Popular cosmetic treatments include BOTOX injections and wrinkle filler injections. These cosmetic services are available in our offices with little or no downtime. Ask how Ophthalmology Associates can help you look your best.
BOTOX® Cosmetic has the most dramatic effect on dynamic wrinkles that are typically “expression wrinkles.” These are the frown lines or furrows found between the eyebrows, the horizontal forehead lines or furrows, and the crow’s feet around the eyes. Patients who notice these types of wrinkles will usually see remarkable and rapid improvement after treatment with BOTOX® Cosmetic.
The best way to find out if you are a good candidate for BOTOX® Cosmetic is to schedule a thorough evaluation and discussion so that we can determine if BOTOX® Cosmetic will produce the effects and results you desire.
Oculoplastic surgery includes a wide variety of surgical procedures that deal with the orbit (eye socket) eyelids, tear ducts, the face and also reconstruction of the eye and associated structures. These problems are both reconstructive and cosmetic.
The following are examples of typical problems we treat using oculoplastic surgery are:
- Vision obstruction due to droopy eyelids.
- Lids turning inward or outward or creating irritation.
- Excessive skin or fat in the upper or lower eyelids blocking vision also
- resulting in an unattractive appearance.
- Fine wrinkles including frown lines and crow’s feet.
- Benign and malignant growths on the eyelids.
- Blocked tear ducts resulting in excessive tearing.
- Infection, inflammation or tumors in the tissues behind the eye.
