What are the different types of aesthetic and ophthalmic plastic surgeries?
Bascom Palmer’s ophthalmic plastic and reconstructive surgeons repair many problems that interfere with the normal function of the eyes. These surgeries are referred to as “functional,” because they are necessary to restore the normal protective function of the eyelids and restore a full field of vision. However, some patients elect to have similar procedures, known as cosmetic surgeries, performed to enhance appearance and sense of well-being. In most cases, elective cosmetic procedures are performed on an out-patient basis.

Physicians with combined training in ophthalmic plastic surgery and ophthalmology have unique abilities to perform a host of delicate procedures around the eyes while taking advantage of opportunities to cosmetically enhance a patient’s appearance. Learn more about Oculofacial Plastic Surgery
