Oculoplasty, often known as oculoplastic surgery, refers to a group of treatments that involve the eyelids, brows, orbit, tear ducts, and face. Ocular reconstructive surgery includes procedures such as aesthetic eyelid surgery, facial plastic surgery, and other cosmetic procedures. Oculoplasty can be medically required or cosmetic, and it is sometimes both.
Oculoplasty encompasses a wide spectrum of operations, from sagging eyelid correction to eye removal. These treatments can be utilised to renew or reconstruct the eye and its surrounding components. Blepharoplasty, also known as an eye lift, is one of the most popular oculoplastic surgeries. This surgery eliminates excess skin from the eyelids, resulting in a less baggy appearance with age. Oculoplastic surgery also includes brow lifts.
In the following instances, occuloplasty should be considered:
- Ptosis- Ptosis is defined as drooping eyelids.
- Entropion- Eyelids that are folded inward toward the eye are said to have entropion.
- Ectropion- It is a condition in which the eyelids fold outward from the eye.
- Thyroid Eye Disease- Grave’s Disease is a type of thyroid eye disease. Because of inflammatory tissue, the eyes appear to bulge.
- Cancer and Other Growths- Tumours or lesions on or around the eye are examples of cancer and other growths.
- Blocked Tear Ducts – Common in infants, but can occur in adults as a result of illness, trauma, or tumours.
- Injuries – It is possible to repair and restore damaged eye sockets.
