Oculoplastic Surgery Options

We’ve all noticed it: With aging, or due to heredity, the eyelids may undergo changes which can make an otherwise youthful individual appear tired, sad, and yes, old. Through cosmetic eyelid surgery, fatty bags under the eyes, excess skin and fat of the upper eyelids, and drooping eyebrows can be dramatically improved. That type of surgery is called Oculoplastic Surgery, the subspecialty of ophthalmology that deals with the diseases and surgery of the eyelids, the tear system, and the orbit (the bones around the eyes). And it’s one of the most Googled terms in eye care. Join Dr. David Goldberg from Eye Consultants of Pennsylvania to learn more about all the different types of oculoplastic surgery options, why they are necessary and more.
