What is an Oculoplastic Surgeon

An Oculoplastic surgeon (eye surgeon) has completed 3 years of residency training in Ophthalmology and an additional 2 years of fellowship training in Ophthalmic Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery (Oculoplastics).  This skill set optimizes the functional and cosmetic outcome for patients.  Oculoplastic surgeons understand the subtle anatomy of the eyelids and the intricacies of surgery in this area.  Oculoplastic surgeons have a unique and focused understanding of eyelid anatomy and its relationship to ocular function and facial expression. This knowledge is the key to achieving optimum results when performing surgery around the eyes.
