Eye Plastic Surgery

Eye plastic surgery is also known as oculoplastic surgery. We offer greater Atlanta Oculoplastic surgery, which is plastic surgery as it pertains to the area around the eye. The eyelids and surrounding areas are extremely delicate and complex structures that are vital to the preservation of sight and are important features of a normal facial appearance. Oculoplastic surgeons are uniquely qualified to perform this delicate surgery and to provide care to the eye itself. Dr. Neufeld performs surgery that specifically deals with the orbit (eye socket), eyelids, tear ducts, and the face.

Oculoplastic procedures can include:

  • Blepharoplasty - eye lift surgery to eliminate excess skin and bags
  • Ptosis repair - correction of drooping eyelids
  • Entropion repair - correction of eyelids that turn inwards
  • Ectropion repair - correction of eyelids that turn outwards
  • Eyelid retraction repair - correction of eyelids that are pulled away from the eye
  • Trichiasis correction (electrohyfrection, cryotherapy, surgery) - eyelashes that are directed towards the eyeball
  • Anatomical tearing problems (punctual stenosis, cannalicular obstruction, nasolacrimal duct obstruction)
  • Orbital floor fracture repair
  • Eyelid lesion removal/biopsy
  • Eyelid reconstruction following trauma or surgery

What is an Oculoplastic Surgeon?

An oculoplastic surgeon is an ophthalmologist (medical doctor and eye surgeon) who has completed additional advanced training in plastic surgery as it relates to the eyes and surrounding structures. The specialty of oculoplastics combines the meticulous detailed microsurgical techniques of ophthalmology with the aesthetic understanding of plastic surgery.

Dr. Kenneth R. Neufeld and The Thomas Eye Group Difference.

Dr. Kenneth R. Neufeld is the oculoplastic surgeon for Thomas Eye Group. However, Dr. Neufeld is not your traditional oculoplastic surgeon. He was trained first as an ophthalmologist and then as an oculoplastic specialist. This provides Dr. Neufeld with specific skills and training to deal with all of the complex ramifications of eyelid, orbital, tear duct, and facial plastics procedures, all of which result in better vision and a natural, more youthful appearance.

Dr. Neufeld utilizes the most advanced laser technology to perform many of his procedures. The laser is used instead of a scalpel or other traditional means of performing surgery because this technology enables Dr. Neufeld to perform surgery with minimal blood loss. This allows for a quicker surgery and a quicker and easier recovery as well.
