What Is Oculoplastic Surgery?
Oculoplastic surgery involves procedures or surgery to the eyelids, surrounding structures or orbit. This is a specialised area of plastic surgery for the delicate structures around the eye.
Why Might I Need Oculoplastic Surgery?
Oculoplastic surgery is offered if we have uncomfortable, abnormal or traumatic changes to our eyelids or eye socket. Common procedures include removing skin cancer on or around the eyelids and repairing the alignment or shape of the eyelids. Our eye specialists at Essendon Eye Clinic also look after the health of the eye socket if there has been trauma, problems with the muscles around the eye or if the eye needs to be removed due to serious disease.
What Are The Risks Of Oculoplastic Surgery?
Any surgery in or around the eye is extremely delicate and requires specialised surgical experience. Our surgeons at Essendon Eye Clinic are experienced in performing eye lid surgery with precision and attention to functional outcomes.
