Oculofacial Plastic and Orbital Surgery

Oculofacial Plastic and Orbital Surgery deals primarily with problems related to the eyelids, tear ducts, orbits and cosmetic surgery of the eyelids and face. Oculofacial Plastic and Orbital Surgeons are board certified ophthalmologists who have completed several years of additional, highly specialized training in plastic surgery.

There are many reasons to pursue surgical intervention of the face and eyes, such as: facial trauma, tumors, eyelid abnormalities, drooping eyelids, anophthalmic sockets, ophthalmic Graves' disease and other orbital issues. A cosmetic procedure may be desired to enhance or restore a facial appearance. These procedures may include blepharoplasty, brow lift, forehead lift, eyelid procedures or facelift. Our team works closely with other specialties at the University of Kansas Medical Center such as neurosurgery, head and neck surgery, plastic surgery and radiology.
