What is an oculoplastic surgeon? This specialty combines the knowledge and precision of an eye surgeon with the finesse and artistry of plastic surgery. The extensive training and highly specialized skill of our oculoplastic surgeons allows them to perform complex eyelid and facial plastic surgery, as well as injectable treatments, with exceptional attention to detail and function while also delivering beautiful and natural-looking results.

Eye and Eyelid Rejuvenation

The eyes are the focal point of the face and the effects of aging can cause eyes to have a tired or angry look. Lax, droopy skin on the upper eyelids, under-eye bags, and low or saggy eyebrows can make eyes look tired and older. These issues can present both cosmetic and functional consequences—all of which can be remedied by our experienced Oculoplastic and Reconstructive Surgeons for a more youthful, alert, and positive appearance. Learn more about how we can help you look as young as you feel by addressing the delicate and fragile tissues in the eye area to:

  • Make the eyes appear younger, more open, and more alert
  • Reduce the fullness between the eyebrow and eyelid margin
  • Reduce under-eye bags
  • Eliminate excess skin and tightening the upper and lower eyelids
  • Raise the eyelid margin to reduce or eliminate drooping
  • Rejuvenate the shape and height of the eyebrows

Eyelid Surgery (Blepharoplasty)

As the skin loses elasticity, upper eyelids can droop or sag while lower eyelids can become puffy. Eyelid surgery, also called blepharoplasty, can lift drooping lids, smooth away wrinkles, and refresh the eyes for a youthful and bright-eyed look. Our blepharoplasty specialists offer upper and lower blepharoplasty, which may be performed on their own or together, depending on your needs.

Brow Lift

As we age, the brow can sometimes descend, creating a sad or angry look. Brow lift surgery lifts a drooping brow and can also smooth away deep forehead wrinkles for a happier and more youthful look. This procedure is often combined with blepharoplasty or injectables for a comprehensive facial rejuvenation.

Ptosis Surgery

Ptosis is a condition in which the eyelid droops due to a weakness or separation of muscles deep within the eyelid. This can cause both aesthetic and functional issues, but a brief surgical procedure can eliminate the drooping.

Oculoplastic Surgeons – Top Specialists in Aesthetic Facial Surgery

We realize that you have choices when it comes to cosmetic procedures, but we also know that your vision is precious. Oculoplastic surgeons are doctors with specialized training in both the function and aesthetics of the eye area; our experts are uniquely qualified to perform eye surgery and provide non-surgical treatments such as BOTOX®, dermal fillers, and laser resurfacing. Oculoplastic surgeons who are members of the American Society of Ophthalmic Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery (ASOPRS) must prove a high standard of skill and pass stringent exams in order to qualify for this specialty.

One thing that sets oculoplastic surgeons apart from other aesthetic providers is the type of education and training they have completed; our oculoplastic specialists earned their medical degrees and went on to several years of internship and residency in ophthalmology before undertaking additional fellowship training in plastic, reconstructive, and orbital surgery. The oculoplastic surgeons at Cincinnati Eye Institute have a deep understanding of the underlying muscles and tissues of the eyes and face which allows them to deliver the results you want while also protecting your eye health.

BOTOX® Cosmetic and Dysport®

BOTOX and Dysport are popular wrinkle reducing injectables that have revolutionized anti-aging regimens. These non-surgical treatments are the secret to effective and long-lasting results to counteract visible signs of aging, such as crow’s feet, forehead lines, laugh lines, smile lines, and more. BOTOX® and Dysport® treatments are quick with no need for downtime. When administered by one of our cosmetic experts, you can expect to look like a more youthful version of yourself with natural results. We also offer BOTOX® injections for medical purposes like blepharospasm.

Injectable Dermal Fillers

Dermal fillers can meet a number of cosmetic and anti-aging needs without surgery, and they can also be used to complement a surgical procedure as part of a personalized rejuvenation plan. Dermal fillers can be used to plump lips, contour cheekbones, fill deep wrinkles, and more.
