Oculoplastic surgery is often performed to correct or treat a medical condition or an injury.
This type of surgery is also done for cosmetic purposes.
Oculoplastic and orbital surgery is concerned specifically with the eyelids, the orbit (the bone around the eye), and the lacrimal system (the tear duct system).
Dr. Bilyk can provide patients with reconstructive, as well as cosmetic, and plastic surgery of the eye and orbital regions.
Functional oculoplastic surgery (which is usually covered by insurance) can correct droopy eyelids, lowered eye brows, excessive tearing, turned out lower eyelids which cause redness and tearing, and all types of eyelid and brow abnormalities caused by aging, trauma, or tumors.
