Oculoplastic surgery is a general term used to indicate a variety of procedures that involve the orbit, eyelids, tear ducts, and the face. Ocular reconstructive surgery, aesthetic eyelid surgery, facial plastic surgery, and cosmetic procedures fall into this category. For instance, certain eyelid and periocular issues can affect a person's appearance as well as their vision, eye comfort, and eye health. Most oculoplastic surgeries can be performed on an outpatient basis, which means you go home the same day and recovery is very quick.
Types of Oculoplastic Surgeries
EYELID SURGERY- The most common type of eyelid surgery is done through incisions following the natural lines of your eyelids. The procedure takes about two hours, if both upper and lower eyelids are done together.
TEAR DUCT SURGERY- Surgeon will make a small incision through the nose or through the skin on the inside corner of your eye and your nose. A new tear drain opening is made from the blocked sac directly into the nose.
ORBITAL SURGERY- Before the surgery, the patient has to undergo CT scan of the eyes and then the surgeon performs fine needle aspiration.
PEDIATRIC OCULOPLASTIC SURGERY-Two common conditions in children that can be corrected by oculoplastic surgery are congenital ptosis and congenital tear duct obstruction, where a local anesthesia is required.
The time to recover from oculoplastic surgery depends on the type of procedure performed, and can vary individually. Oculoplastic surgeries are generally free of complications, and most patients report little discomfort during their procedure and recovery.
