Oculoplasty is an art and science of plastic surgery around the eye. As the eye is a very delicate organ, well protected in a bony socket. Hence, the surgery involving the eye is very technique sensitive. Occuloplasty surgery involves surgeries associated with orbits, eyelids, tear ducts and also involves reconstruction of the eye and nearby structures.
A patient with sagging of the right lower eyelid came to our OPD. She wanted her eyes to be corrected so that she could look normal. The team of doctors headed by Dr Sunil Richardson examined the case, necessary scans were done to see the bony deformities if associated. The eye surgery for the patient was scheduled .
The Occuloplasty surgery was done and the lower eyelid was corrected in its right shape and symmetry. There were no complications and post op phase was also pain-free for the patient. The deformity in eye was corrected; patient and her parents are very satisfied with her looks now postoperatively.
Patients with any tumours of the eyelids, ectropion , entropion or drooping eyelids, or lids that don’t shut properly can be fixed here at Richardsons Dental and Craniofacial Hospital.
