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.

Eyelid Cancers, Orbital Tumors & Reconstruction

The most common cancer to affect the eyelid is basal cell carcinoma. This type of cancer is primarily caused by ultraviolet light exposure. Most cancers of the eyelid are easily treatable when identified and treated early.

Oculoplastic surgeons are uniquely trained to reconstruct the eyelid after it has been affected by cancer. Our goal is to provide a complete cure of the disease and repair the eyelid in the most aesthetically pleasing manner possible.

If you are concerned about a bump on your eyelid or a raised, or if an irregular lesion appears, call Eye Physicians of Long Beach for an examination.
