What is an Ocuploplastic Surgeon?

An oculoplastic surgeon has training in both Ophthalmology and Plastic Reconstructive Surgery. The specialty of Oculoplastics is an art that combines the meticulous detailed microsurgical techniques of ophthalmology with the aesthetic understanding of plastic surgery.

Brow and Forehead Lift

Endoscopic Brow/Forehead Lift

An endoscopic brow/forehead lift is a cosmetic procedure for those who have sagging brows or deep furrows between the eyes. This procedure is frequently performed at the same time as an upper eyelid blepharoplasty to raise the eyebrows and reduce the amount of skin that needs to be removed from the upper eyelids. Several small incisions are made behind the hairline and an endoscope is used to remove the muscles that produce the frown lines and elevate the eyebrows.


Direct Brow Lifts

A direct brow lift is a procedure that restores a more youthful, refreshed look to the area above the eyes. The procedure corrects drooping or sagging eyebrows and improves the horizontal lines and furrows that can make a person appear angry, sad or tired. Brow lift surgery works by removing muscles and tissues that cause the brow to droop, allowing the brow lift to create a smoother looking forehead.


Browpexy

Browpexy returns the brow to a more appealing and anatomically correct position on the upper face. Eye brow enhancement/correction procedures have evolved in recent years. Patients are looking for minimally invasive ways to correct the upper eyelids. Browpexy is a thorough eyelid procedure that can raise the eyebrows, and this technique can assist in other procedures such as blepharoplasty, without the need to have a scalp or forehead incision.
