Oculoplastic surgery, also known as Ophthalmic Plastic and Reconstructive, Oculofacial, or Eye Plastic Surgery, is a surgical subspecialty of Ophthalmology that deals with the medical and surgical management of deformities and abnormalities of the eyelids, lacrimal (tear) system, orbit (bony socket) and the adjacent face.
An oculoplastic surgeon is an ophthalmologist, medical doctor, and eye surgeon, who has completed additional advanced training in plastic surgery as it relates to the eyes and surrounding structures.
Board certification by the American Board of Ophthalmology is required to complete a two-year advanced fellowship training in Ophthalmic Plastic, Orbit and Reconstructive Surgery. This gives the oculoplastic surgeon an unparalleled level of training and experience to deal with the complex issues involved in plastic surgery around the eye.
