What is oculoplasty?

Many people wonder what is oculoplasty. Well, eye plastic surgery, oculoplastic surgery Orbit-facial plastic surgery is the ophthalmological specialty that treats all the alterations that occur in the periocular area such as the eyelids, eyebrows, orbit or lacrimal, among others. Oculoplasty includes both functional and aesthetic interventions.

Treatments

This type of reconstruction surgery or beautification of the periocular area, given its direct relationship with the organ of vision, must be performed by an ophthalmologist specialist in oculoplastic surgery. In this unit, reconstructive surgeries of palpebral malpositions are performed, such as the following:

Blepharoplasty

We are specialists in cosmetic surgery of the eyelids, better known as Blepharoplasty. This intervention is always performed on an outpatient basis under local anesthesia and consists in rejuvenating the look naturally.

To do this, we eliminate the excess skin that forms on the upper eyelids with age. Later, we reconstructed the crease of the eyelid, all using microincisions that are hidden in the natural folds of the skin. At the level of the lower eyelids we eliminate the colloquially called 'bags' by transconjunctival route. For this we use the most modern techniques of redistribution of fat to avoid a sunken appearance of the eyes after the intervention.

Ectropion

El ectropion It occurs when the inner part of the eyelid is turned and is out. It can happen in both the upper and lower eyelids although it is more common to happen in the latter. Normally the ectropion intervention You only need local anesthesia and it consists of tightening the eyelid so that it is in its natural position.

Entropion

El entropion It is just the opposite of ectropion. That is, in this case the upper or lower eyelid rotates into the eye. This pathology is very annoying because the eyelashes can get in contact with the eyeball causing continuous friction and possible irritation. Both entropion and ectropion are two very common problems and their main treatment is the entropion operation.

Eyelid tumors

Palpebral tumors are those that form on the eyelids. With an oculoplastic surgery we can treat and reconstruct any type of eyelid tumor.

Fallen Eyelids

The droopy eyelids or ptosis They can also be treated with oculoplastic surgery. Thanks to this treatment, an elevation of the eyelids is achieved, thus preventing them from getting in the way of seeing the eye or giving the appearance of so little aesthetic fatigue.

Thyroid ophthalmopathy

With oculoplasty you can treat aspects encompassed within the thyroid ophthalmopathy. In Área Oftalmológica We are a reference in this treatment thanks to the collaboration of Dr. Silvia Wengrowicz, a national reference in the treatment of hyperthyroidism. With it, our patients benefit from a comprehensive treatment of their hyperthyroid status and their ophthalmopathy.

Fallen eyebrows

We are pioneers in the eyebrow lift, surgery performed through an endoscopic system with a microcamera through small incisions in the scalp that leave no visible scar. This surgery achieves very natural results, raising the eyebrows and eliminating wrinkles on the forehead. On many occasions we perform it together with a blepharoplasty.

Dacryocystorhinostomy

One of the novelties we have recently incorporated is the treatment of obstructions in the tear drainage pathway (dacryocystorhinostomy), using endonasal approach techniques. This avoids any type of cut on the skin and the recovery period is shortened drastically with respect to the classic external approach.
