Oculoplastic Surgery

What Is Oculoplastic Surgery?

  • Oculoplastic surgery is a type of procedure that focuses on functionally or esthetically improving the areas around the eyes, such as the eyelids, orbital bones, tear ducts, and other structures.
  • This makes them extremely dynamic, as they can do everything from cosmetic enhancement to repairing orbital fractures to removing eye tumors.
  • These procedures address some of the most delicate parts of your vision system and facial structure — and are best performed by eye doctors and anatomical experts who have the knowledge and skill to perform these sensitive surgeries, like our own Dr. Palombaro.
