In this blog, I will tell you how the Oculoplastic and Lacrimal surgeon combine their skills. They treat medical, aesthetic and cosmetic problems too.
This field of oculoplastic surgery includes techniques to rejuvenate the appearance of the periocular tissues. These are, for example, tear trough hollowing, eyelid wrinkles, glabellar lines, horizontal forehead lines, crow’s feet, skin condition, skin pigmentation, malar bags, loss of facial volume, deep nasolabial and nasojugal lines etc..
We apply Botox for wrinkles. We use Restylane(TearFill) for tear trough hollowing. Sculptra is used with SculptEyes and SculptVisage for loss of facial volume and malar bags. We do a reversal of excessive or not well-placed hyaluronate filler with hyaluronidase enzyme (HyaloFix).
I am particularly interested in aesthetic and cosmetic rejuvenation around the eyes as I appreciate so much the beauty of the eyes. Thus, I also do other treatments. These are Intraceuticals serum and oxygen treatment, Ultherapy Uplifting, SkinBoosters. Of course, I specialise in tear trough filling with cannula and Restylane (TearFill). This requires an in-depth understanding of the anatomy and how to deal with complications around the eyes.
“Many oculoplastic and lacrimal surgeons do aesthetic and cosmetic medical treatments and surgery of the eyelids and periocular tissues.”
Eyebrow shapes and position
Delicate medical Botox and surgical procedures can alter the shape of the eyebrows. A lot can be achieved for the brow with Botox. Many patients with slight brow droop (ptosis) don’t need a brow lift. Yet, they do well with a delicate upper eyelid blepharoplasty and Botox.
Eyelid height and droopiness.
Oculoplastic surgeons do procedures to correct minor abnormalities of eyelid position. These would not qualify for treatment under the NHS, such as ptosis, droopy eyelids, and eye bags.
Many of the techniques used in aesthetic surgery are like those used generally in oculoplastic surgery. Blepharoplasty can be done for medical functional reasons. For example, when the eyelids are drooping so much that they are interfering with the vision. There are also just aesthetic or cosmetic reasons. For instance, if the eyelid droop is only mild but unsightly from the patients´ perspective
