What is an Oculoplastic surgeon?
An oculoplastic surgeon is a specialised ophthalmologist (eye doctor) who specialises in eyelid and facial plastic surgery relevant to the eyes. The most common aesthetic procedure performed is blepharoplasty (eye-lift).Oculoplastic surgeons can correct results from previous cosmetic surgery around the eyes,
Oculoplastic surgeons spend a minimum of seven years training in eye and eyelid surgery, and have chosen to specialise in oculoplastic surgery.
