Oculofacial plastic surgery involves the eyes and the tissues of the surrounding face. It’s a small but deserving zone of expertise: Eyes, brows, eyelids, cheeks and mouths convey expressions integral to communication. Vision helps us appreciate our humanity.
At the UW Medicine Eye Institute, specialists focus on eye disease, disorder, and trauma. Oculofacial plastic surgeons have additional training in plastic and reconstructive surgery, so they can repair a patient’s appearance following a traumatic event or surgery to remove a tumor. They also expertly perform procedures such as a
brow lift or face lift, with the benefit of deep knowledge of the face’s layers of skin, muscle, fat and bone, and those tissues’ subtle interplay.
Every patient’s face is uniquely shaped by heredity, environment and age. Our surgeons will consult with you to understand how you would want to change your face, and to explain what procedures can achieve the potential you envision. We’ll seek to establish common goals and expectations with you. Your vision, safety and satisfaction are our priorities.
