Cosmetic Eye Surgeries: What You Need to Know

You’ve come to the right place if you are considering a transformative change to improve your eye health and rejuvenate your appearance. There are many reasons to undergo cosmetic eye surgery, and the expert team at Southwest Eyecare is here to provide you with essential information to make an informed decision about oculoplastic procedures. From eyelid surgeries to Botox and filler injections, we will delve into the intricacies of oculoplastic surgery, shedding light on the reasons, benefits, and everything in between. Your vision is too important to take for granted, so protect it with ophthalmology.

What is an Oculoplastic Surgeon?

First, it is important to understand the role of your oculoplastic surgeon. An oculoplastic surgeon is a specialist with advanced training in both ophthalmology and plastic surgery. Their expertise over a general cosmetic surgeon is that they are specifically trained to address the health, function, and aesthetic issues surrounding the eyes. This makes them the ideal professional when it is time for your cosmetic eye surgery. At Southwest Eyecare, our team of skilled oculoplastic surgeons combines precision and artistry to deliver outstanding results tailored to each patient’s needs.

Common Oculoplastic Procedures

Cosmetic eye surgeries encompass a range of procedures and treatments designed to treat medical and cosmetic issues, enhancing the functionality and appearance of the eyes and surrounding areas. Among the most common are cosmetic procedures to address drooping eyelids, under-eye bags, and excess skin. For example, we offer external brow lift surgeries, blepharoplasty, or “lid lifts.” We can offer reconstructive surgery after trauma or skin cancer or perform procedures for orbital fracture repairs. We also offer injectables and facial fillers like Botox. Our overall goal is to improve vision and enhance comfort and self-confidence, so our office offers a comprehensive range of minimally invasive procedures. With remarkable results and minimal downtime, our appealing options make impactful appearance changes.

What Conditions Can Be Treated With Cosmetic Eye Surgeries

When it comes to cosmetic eye surgery, we understand that it is not always about aesthetics. Oculoplastic procedures are also essential for addressing various medical conditions that affect the function and appearance of the eyes. Conditions such as upper lid ptosis (drooping eyelids), entropion (inward-turning eyelids), and ectropion (outward-turning eyelids) can all be corrected through cosmetic eyelid surgery with our oculoplastic surgeons. Here in New Mexico, we also see many residents who experience a range of benign and malignant growths due to sun exposure, so our oculoplastic surgeons are experienced in addressing concerns related to eyelid growth. Additionally, cosmetic eye surgeries can alleviate symptoms related to:

  • obstructed tear ducts
  • tumors
  • trauma or injuries that affect the eyelid
  • excess eyelid skin

These procedures are designed to improve patients’ vision and quality of life.
