Plastic Reconstructive Surgery of the Eyelids
Ophthalmic plastic and reconstructive surgery is a subspecialty within the ophthalmology field that seeks to address the structures that immediately surround the eyes, including the eyelids, tear drainage apparatus, and orbit (eye socket).
Our oculoplastic surgeon, Dr. Beckstead, specializes in medical and surgical correction of droopy eyelids, tear drainage abnormalities, periocular trauma, and has extensive experience in the surgical treatment of periocular cancers.
The most common conditions treated by an oculoplastic surgeon include droopy upper and lower eyelids, eyelid cancers, tear drainage abnormalities, trauma around the eyes, and medical diseases or growths manifest in the orbit. Other areas of interest to an oculoplastic surgeon include periocularrejuvenation, which consists of newer medicines (Botox), synthetic materials (dermal fillers), and surgery to address aging changes.
