Oculoplastia or ocular plastic surgery is responsible for all those affections around the eyes, such as eyelids or eyebrows, whether they are functional or aesthetic.

Types of oculoplasty or ocular plastic surgery

- Blepharoplasty or plastic surgery of the eyelid: It allows to eliminate the excess of skin and fat, of both the upper and lower eyelids, eliminating bags and dark circles and thus rejuvenating the face. Sometimes the eyebrows also rise, if they fall on the eyelid. It is a simple intervention in which the patient returns to the home on the same day and is quickly reincorporated into his daily life.

- Treat entropion: Entropy involves the interference of the lower eyelid with the eyelashes, which causes an irritation of the eyeball, as well as excessive tearing and loss of vision. During the procedure, the eyelid is tightened using local anesthesia.

- Treatment of ectropion: The opposite occurs as in the previous case, although with similar symptoms or consequences: tearing and irritation. Although it can be treated with medication, the definitive correction is surgical, being performed in the same way as the entropion, tightening the eyelid.

- Ptosis surgery: It is used to strengthen and lift the eyelids when they fall and make difficult the correct vision.

- Pterygium surgery using grafts: It is an intervention that seeks to prevent and control the growth of tissue in triangular form. If it stops, it avoids the sensation of foreign body and the consequent obstruction of the vision.

- Treat xanthelasmas: They are benign tumors around the eyelid. It is a common pathology in adults with diabetes, cirrhosis or hypercholesterolemia.
