Oculoplastic surgery is plastic surgery related to the areas around the eyes: the eyelids, orbit (bones behind the eye) and lacrimal (tear drain) system.
An oculoplastic surgeon is an ophthalmologist who performs cosmetic and reconstructive procedures on the eyelids, Ptosis , DCT/DCT and lacrimal (tear drain) system. The field of oculoplastic surgery combines the precision and microsurgery of ophthalmology with the aesthetic and reconstructive concepts of plastic surgery. Oculoplastic surgery is a small, highly selective subspeciality of ophthalmology.
