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 10 years ago. Below are the reconstructive procedures we use most often:

Ectropion – outward Turning of the Lower Eyelid

Entropion – inward Turning of the Lower Eyelid

Thyroid Eye Disease – an autoimmune eye condition that is often seen in conjunction with Graves’ Disease.

Eyelid Reconstructions – Eyelid reconstruction may be undertaken in a variety of situations. Defects in the eyelid may arise from a variety of situations, but most commonly after trauma or tumor excision.

Eyelid Skin Cancer – often involves the skin of the eyelid or adjacent face.

Ptosis – Drooping of the upper eyelid

Tearing – an obstruction of the tear duct

Orbital Trauma – injuries to the orbit or tissue surrounding the eye

Orbital Tumors – tumors that develop in the orbit, eyeball, eye muscles, the optic nerve or the fat in-between

Blepharospasm Treatment – Benign essential blepharospasm is a condition that usually involves both eyes.

Corrective Plastic Surgery – plastic surgery revision, repairing other’s work.
