What Are Oculoplastics?

Oculoplastics, also known as oculoplastic cosmetic surgery, is a good way to change the appearance of a person's eyes. Several procedures fall under this category. The following are just a sample of the options available from The Center for Eye Care and Optical in West Islip, NY, that can improve the appearance of your eyes.

Botox

Botox injections around your eyes can reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. Injections can also be performed to treat drooping eyelids. Botox injections usually take about half a day to recover from, although many people can resume light activities within an hour of the injections.

Results are almost immediately seen, but they are temporary. Depending on the amount of Botox used, the age and skin condition of the patient, and environmental factors, results will usually last anywhere from six weeks to six months.

Reconstructive Surgery

This type of surgery is usually recommended for people who have had injuries in an accident or a congenital disability. These procedures are often performed along with other types of facial reconstructive surgery.

This type of surgery is considered too invasive for most patients. Patients looking to improve their appearance should consider other options first.

Blepharoplasty

This surgery is designed to correct excessive skin on the upper or lower eyelids. It can also help remove or reduce the appearance of "bags" or extra fat above and below the eyes. The benefits of this procedure are reduced irritation around the eye area.

Tear Duct Correction

This procedure is meant to remove a blockage from a tear duct (caused by a congenital disability, illness, or injury). This allows a patient to produce moisture for their eyes.
