What Is Ocular Plastic Surgery?
You know what plastic surgery is, but ocular plastic surgery may be a concept you are not familiar with. Ocular plastic surgery works to change the appearance of the area around the eyes. While the changes made to the face during ocular plastic surgery are subtle, they can be life-changing when it comes to how you see and how you feel about your appearance. At Eye Care Specialists of Oklahoma, serving Midwest City and Edmond, OK, our ophthalmology team is here to work with you to create a plan that will help you achieve your happiest, healthiest, most confident look.
Common Ocular Plastic Surgery Procedures
There are several common ocular plastic surgery procedures, including:
- BOTOX – BOTOX injections work by paralyzing the muscle into which the substance is injected, allowing the area to completely relax and stop the formation of wrinkles and fine lines.
- Eyelid Surgery – If you don’t love the shape of your eyes, eyelid surgery can help. Whether you want larger or smaller eyelids, our team will work with you to create a custom look that’s perfect for your face.
- Forehead and/or Eyebrow Lift – Many people experience drooping eyelids with age. A forehead or eyebrow lift can draw the skin on the top third of your face upwards, creating a youthful appearance.
