Oculoplastic procedures refer to a large variety of surgical procedures that deal with the orbit (eye socket), eyelids, tear ducts, 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 botox dysport xeomin and fillers injection prp+micro needling procedures, eye lifts, 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 orbital fractures may prevent double vision as well as sunken eye appearance. Listed below are some of the procedures that Assil Eye Institute can diagnose and treat for our patients.
As we age it is very common for skin on and around your face and eyes to start sagging or dropping. Because the skin muscles in the eyelid areas are much more thin than the other facial skin it is understandable why eyelid skin may start to droop. Of course cigarette smoking and overexposure to the sun’s UV radiation will worsen this condition. As your eye muscles weaken the skin around the eyelids will start to form bags and will begin sagging. Many people do not like this because it makes them look old and tired. Dr. Davidi eyes Institute does offer cosmetic eyelid surgery (Blepharoplasty) for patients hoping to look and see well. By rejuvenating the eyelids, patients look more alert, less tired and refreshed. In some cases drooping eyelids become a medical issue and can obstruct vision. In these cases insurance may cover the cost of the eyelid surgery. Dr. Davidi is available for second opinions.
Ptosis is a drooping of the upper eyelid. The lid may droop only slightly, or it may cover the pupil entirely. In some cases, ptosis can restrict and even block normal vision. Eyelid Surgery is typically the best treatment for sagging eyelids. Dr. Davidi will tighten levator muscles to lift eyelids, giving you improved vision and appearance.
