Reconstructive Eye and Face Surgery
Reconstructive surgery differs from cosmetic surgery in that reconstructive surgery is performed on abnormal structures of the face, caused by birth defects, developmental abnormalities, trauma or injury, infection, tumors, or disease. It is generally performed to improve function, but may also be done to improve appearance.
Modern treatment options allow facial eye plastic surgeons to achieve improvements in form and function thought to be impossible ten years ago. Below are the reconstructive procedures we use most often:
Blepharospasm Treatment – Benign essential blepharospasm is a condition that usually involves both eyes.
Corrective Plastic Surgery – Plastic surgery revision, repairing others’ work.
Earlobe Surgery – Procedures to repair stretched out, split, and ripped earlobes.
Ectropion Repair – Correcting the outward turning of the lower eyelid.
Entropion Repair – Correcting the inward turning of the lower eyelid.
Eyelid Reconstruction – Eyelid reconstruction may be undertaken in a variety of situations, like after trauma or tumor excision.
Eyelid Skin Cancer Reconstruction – Often involves the skin of the eyelid or adjacent face. Procedures may involve a biopsy or reconstruction following a Mohs Surgery to remove cancer in the area.
Orbital Trauma and Fracture Repair – Correcting injuries to the orbit (eye socket), bones, or tissues surrounding the eye.
Orbital Tumors – Biopsy and excision for tumors that develop in the orbit, eyeball, eye muscles, the optic nerve, or the fat in-between.
Ptosis Repair – Lifting a droopy upper eyelid.
Thyroid Eye Disease – An autoimmune eye condition that is often seen in conjunction with Graves’ Disease. Usually, treatment is complex, requiring collaboration with different specialists and multiple procedures.
Tearing – Surgery to create a new way for tears to flow after obstruction of the tear drainage system.
