What is Oculoplastics?
Oculoplastics is a sub-specialty of ophthalmology and a specialized field of plastic surgery that focuses on the eyes, orbits (eye sockets), lacrimal system (tear ducts), and face. Dr. Dominick I. Golio is a highly trained oculoplastic surgeon who specializes in a variety of procedures. He provides treatments for eyelid and periocular issues that can affect patients’ vision, health, and appearance. Dr. Golio also performs facial plastic and reconstructive procedures, as well as injectable and filler services.
Oculoplastic surgery includes a wide range of procedures that can be surgical or non-surgical, and performed for medical or cosmetic purposes. At Giliberti Eye and Laser Center, we are proud to offer the following types of services:
Excisions and/or Biopsies
This includes tumors or cysts around the eyelids and orbital region.
Eyelid surgery encompasses many types of operations, including:
Blepharoplasty, which is performed to improve the appearance of the eyelids. This type of procedure can be done on both the upper and lower lids to repair loose or sagging skin.
Entropion Eyelid Repair, which is done to fix an eyelid that folds inward and causes the eyelashes to constantly rub against the cornea.
Ectropion Eyelid Repair, which is done to fix an eyelid that turns outward and exposes the inner surface to irritation.
Orbital surgeries consist of a range of treatments for problems brought upon by thyroid-related orbitopathy (as seen in patients with Graves’ Disease), orbital inflammatory syndromes, traumatic injuries, etc.
Lacrimal System Surgery
Lacrimal System surgeries are performed to improve tearing.
Reconstructive surgery is performed to improve the aesthetics and functionality of the eyelids and face.
Brow and Forehead Lift
This type of procedure can be performed to raise sagging brows that are hooding the upper eyelids, or to reduce fine lines and wrinkles.
Injectables and Fillers
BOTOX®, Restylane®, Radiesse®, Perlane®, etc for specific concerns.
Due to the cosmetic nature of oculoplastics procedures, they are frequently considered elective surgeries and therefore not covered by health insurances. However, some procedures may be covered as medically necessary if associated symptoms are affecting patients’ vision and health.
