Oculoplastic procedures refer to a large variety of surgical procedures that deal with the orbit (eye socket), eyelids, tear ducts, Eyelid surgery, Fat transfer, Eyelid bags, Excess eyelid skin, and the face. These procedures include repair of droopy eyelids, repair of tear duct obstructions, orbital fracture repairs, removal of tumors in and around the eyes, and facial rejuvenation procedures including laser skin resurfacing, eye lifts, Restylane®, BOTOX®, and brow lifts. Oculoplastic procedures frequently have both functional and aesthetic purposes. For example, blepharoplasty, a procedure for excessive and droopy eyelid skin, may improve peripheral vision as well as facial beauty and rejuvenation. Repair of tear duct obstructions prevents chronic infections and tears from running out of the eyes and down the face. Repair of obital fractures may prevent double vision as well as sunken eye appearance. Specialized plastic surgery procedures to treat medical conditions that affect vision and eye health, and to restore or enhance facial appearance and beauty, include:
Dr. Kenneth R. Neufeld is the oculoplastic surgeon for Thomas Eye Group. He trained first as ophthalmologist and then as an oculoplastic specialist. He has specialized training to deal with all of the complex ramifications of eyelids, orbital bone area, tear ducts, and facial plastic procedures which result in better vision and a natural, more youthful appearance.
Our oculoplastic procedures are performed under local anesthesia and with light sedation. This combination is much safer and leads to faster recovery. Dr. Neufeld performs all of the procedures himself and sees patients on their pre-operative visit, the surgery, and all necessary post-operative visits.
