Benefits of Oculofacial Plastic Surgery
Oculoplastic surgery offers patients an effective solution for both cosmetic and functional concerns. Oculofacial procedures can lift drooping eyelids, smooth away deep wrinkles, and lift sagging skin for a well-rested and refined look. We also offer procedures to correct medical issues, such as ptosis (drooping eyelids) that interfere with vision.
Types of Oculofacial Plastic Surgery
Also known as an eye lift or eyelid surgery, blepharoplasty is one of the most popular cosmetic surgeries in the United States.1 Upper blepharoplasty can fix drooping or sagging eyelids for a more bright-eyed appearance, while lower blepharoplasty addresses bags underneath the eyes.

As we age, skin loses elasticity and the brow can begin to droop in a way that makes a person look tired or angry even when they are not. A brow lift, also called a forehead lift, can restore a youthful appearance and smooth away forehead wrinkles.

A mid-facelift, sometimes called a cheek lift, can restore lost facial volume and give the look of high cheekbones. A mid-facelift addresses the area between the eyes and upper mouth, so it can also diminish the look of under-eye hollows and marionette wrinkles.

Frequently Asked Questions About Oculofacial Plastic Surgery
Why Choose an Oculoplastic Facial Surgeon?
Your face is how you present yourself to the world and it is important to choose a specialist you can trust. Oculoplastic surgeons receive additional training beyond the already rigorous process to become a doctor. They have an in-depth understanding of how the eye functions as well as the underlying facial structures. This makes them uniquely qualified to perform facial plastic surgery while protecting your vision.
How do I know if I’m ready for surgical treatment?
The aging process is complex and inevitable—non-surgical treatments can only do so much. If you are ready for an effective solution for a drooping brow, sagging eyelids, or loose facial skin, then surgical treatment may be an option.
Who is a good candidate for Oculofacial Plastic Surgery?
Ideal candidates for oculofacial procedures are in good general health and have realistic expectations for their results. The best way to determine if a procedure is right for you is to schedule a consultation appointment.
