Oculo-plastic Surgery

Aesthetic eye surgery

This is very much a multi specialty domain. In the USA most of this type of surgery is done by Dermatologists, Ophthalmologists, ENT and Maxillofacial surgeons. Very few by Plastic Surgeons. In South Africa, it is the other way round and Europe is somewhere in between.

This can be a very satisfying field of surgery, if you are well trained and know what you are doing. In Ophthalmology we tend to stick to area around the eyes. So, for an Ophthalmologist, this would mainly include things like, Botox, Blepharoplasty, Ptosis, Bags under the eyes and skin resurfacing of the face. Various kinds of injuries and disfigurements of the orbit, lids, skin and face also fall into this category.
