Oculoplastic eye surgery consists of constructive and reconstructive surgery of the eyelids, tear ducts and orbit, the bony socket surrounding the eye. What is the difference between an oculoplastic surgeon and a plastic surgeon? Well, oculoplastic surgeons are experienced ophthalmologists who have also received training in plastic surgery of tissues around the eye, and understand the balance of performing cosmetic or reconstructive surgery while maintaining the function of the eyes.

Conditions such as drooping upper eyelids, sagging lower eyelids that turn out, eyelid growths, tear duct blockage and disfigurement from injuries, burns and birth defects can affect not only appearance but are often conditions for which cosmetic surgery may be medically necessary. Surgery to treat conditions which cause the eyebrows to sag or cause excess skin on the upper or lower eyelids are sometimes considered purely cosmetic, but may also be considered medically necessary. Key-Whitman cosmetic and reconstructive surgeons are experienced in treating each of these conditions.n addition to LASIK and cataract eye surgery, Key-Whitman specializes in oculoplastic eye surgery andBOTOX cosmetic injections.

The doctors at Key-Whitman can also treat and prevent moderate to severe wrinkles with BOTOX cosmetic injections. When injected into selected muscles, BOTOX weakens or paralyzes these muscles, effectively eliminating crow’s feet, frown lines, and forehead lines. Results last from three to six with the first BOTOX treatment. BOTOX is a nonsurgical procedure that usually takes approximately 10 minutes to administer. Discomfort from the procedure is minimal, and no recovery time is needed.
