We’re dedicated to making the next generation of eye care accessible to our communities, which is why we’re proud to offer oculofacial plastics. Your oculofacial plastic surgeon can eliminate eye bags with a deftly performed blepharoplasty, bring relief from sagging skin by correcting ectropion and entropion eyelid issues, and revise and revitalize your entire eye area.
What are Oculofacial Plastics?
Oculofacial plastics, also known as oculoplastics, are a form of reconstructive and plastic surgery performed on the upper face. This includes the eyelids, tear ducts, and eye sockets, and can even cover cosmetic rejuvenation procedures. Our oculofacial surgery team resolves problems that surround the outer structure of the eye, with aesthetically pleasing results. These procedures can be functional, like correcting eyelid drooping and tear production, or cosmetic, like removing unappealing sagging skin.
Who Benefits from Oculofacial Plastics?
The eyes are one of the first areas to show signs of aging because the skin around them is so delicate, and at times this can cause eye health problems. Oculofacial plastics can be beneficial for countering the drooping skin and functional issues that come with age. It can also be a great choice if you’ve undergone an accident or injury that requires reconstructive surgery, as oculofacial plastics can also help rebuild your upper face’s structures for a natural look.

If you’re dealing with puffy lids, undereye bags, wrinkles, or excess skin — or the decreased field of vision that comes with them — a blepharoplasty may be wonderful option for you. Excess skin around the eyelids can cause irritation around the eyes, and even decrease peripheral vision. At New York Ophthalmology, our experienced oculofacial plastic surgeons can remove the excess skin from your lower and upper eyelids to restore your eyelids to a more functional, youthful state.
Ectropion is a condition where your eyelid turns outward away from the eye, potentially exposing the delicate inner eyelid. Typically affecting the lower eyelid, this condition results from weakened muscles and tendons, and is a common sign of aging. The only permanent way to protect your eyes from irritation and infection caused by ectropion is surgery. Our team will tailor your procedure to your specific needs, for healthier eyes free from sagging.
Entropion is the opposite of ectropion, where instead the eyelid is turned inwards due to lax, aged muscles. This condition commonly affects the lower eyelid and may cause irritation from eyelashes rubbing against the ocular surface, as well as corneal infection, ulceration, and even vision loss. Our team at New York Ophthalmology is here to help with uniquely customized solutions to keep your eyes healthy, and your eyelids intact!
