What is Oculoplasty?

Your eyes are your most noticeable feature. They are the first place people look to understand you and to gauge your feelings. Even minor changes to the areas surrounding your eyes, including the effects of aging, can impact the expression you wish to project.

Changes around your eyes (an eyelid that over the years has grown heavy, for example) can also alter the functionality of the eye and can potentially compromise your vision.

An incision on the eyelid skin may result in a scar. However, fine incision lines can usually be hidden in the lid crease for the upper lid, and under the lashes in the lower lid. Keloid or hypertrophic scarring is quite uncommon in the eyelid.
It is not painful. Local anaesthetic is injected into the eyelids before the procedure. There may be some discomfort initially due to the injection, but there is no pain during the procedure itself.
