A Highly Skilled Oculoplastic Surgeon

An oculoplastic surgeon specializes in ophthalmology and has completed one to two years of further fellowship training after ophthalmology residency.

Oculoplastic surgeons undertake procedures such as repair of tear duct impediments, correction of sagging eyelids (blepharoplasty), repair of orbital fractures, elimination of tumors in and around the eyes, and lid and facial reconstruction.

These surgeons begin their training after medical school and an internship with a residency in eye surgery or Ophthalmology. This training involves a thorough understanding of the anatomy of the eye, eyelids, and facial area surrounding the eye.

A vital element in Ophthalmology training is eye surgery. This is a complex surgery and warrants an exquisitely gentle hand. Certain sutures used in eye surgery are so fine that they float on slight breezes in the air when attempting to tie them.

Following Ophthalmology training, these doctors undergo fellowship training. As Ophthalmology involves very fine suturing, a targeted and careful touch is necessary when performing facial and eyelid surgery.

Specializing in Eye Care

Plastic surgeons are usually generalist in this regard and often treat multiple body areas. In comparison, an oculoplastic surgeon focuses on the face and around the eyes. They are considered specialists in this field.

Cosmetic surgeons and oculoplastic surgeons can both be outstanding specialists in their area. However, when it comes to eye-related procedures, an oculoplastic surgeon will be better positioned to use targeted, small, fine motions and cutting-edge surgical instruments to create desirable outcomes.

Ophthalmology training and oculoplastic fellowship provide these surgeons with finesses enabling them to develop successful results in delicate eye or eyelid surgeries.
