Oculoplasty is an art & science of plastic surgery around the eyes. It deals with all the structures surrounding the eyeball. i.e.: Eyelids, Bony socket.
1. Blepharoplasty : It is the commonest type of aesthetic eyelid surgery. In this excessive skin or fat of the eyelid is removed and repositioned to improve the appearance.
2. Droopy Eyelids & Eyebrows : Due to laxity or weakness of muscles that lift the upper eyelid in normal course, if impaired than it is called as droopy eyelids (Ptosis). Droopy eyelids and droopy eyebrows both are corrected by elevating surgeries.
3. Face lift : is a type of cosmetic surgery procedure used to give a more youthful facial appearance. There are multiple surgical techniques. It usually involves the removal of excess facial skin, with or without the tightening of underlying tissues, and the redraping of the skin on the patient’s face and neck. Facelifts are effectively combined with eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty) and other facial procedures.
4. Botox Fillers : Injectable fillers that relax the muscle under a wrinkle, fill the line, crease, or area with one of several different substances. Wrinkle fillers can also be used as "volumizers," plumping and lifting cheeks, jawlines, and temples; filling out thin lips, and plumping sagging hands.The most widely used is Hyaluronic Acid filler which relaxes subcutaneous skin folds and prolonging the rejuvenating result.
5. Ectropion/ Entropion : When the lower lid is turned outwards is called Ectropion. When the lower lid is turned inwards is called Entropion. Lid and lashes rub against eye, leading to excessive tearing and general discomfort. Surgery is performed to correct malposition & cosmetic appearance as well.
6. Blepharospasm : An increased involuntary movement (blinks) is called blepharospasm.
7. Eyelid/Ocular injuries : Lids and bones of the orbit can get damaged by many injuries including accident (road), sports injury etc. Proper repair of eyelid & orbit restores protective function and cosmetic appearance.
8. Enucleation : It is the surgery of removal of the eye. Performed for several reasons such as malignant tumors of the eye, Very painful blind eye or in some cases of perforated eye.
9. Orbital implants & Prosthesis : These are the implants those are used following enucleation surgery. Eye is replaced with Orbital Implant to fill up the empty socket. It also improves the cosmetic appearance.
10. Defects of Lacrimal system : If there is any blockage or narrowing of the any part of lacrimal system including puncta, canaliculus, nasolacrimal sac, nasolacrimal duct; it leads to excessive watering that interferes with activities of daily activity. There can also be an infection in the lacrimal sac (acute dacryocystitis) as a result of the blocked tear duct which causes red, painful swelling at the corner of the eye. These problems are treated by a procedure called Dacryocystorhinostomy (DCR). In this a new passage is made between the lacrimal sac and the nose and this bypasses any blockage below the lacrimal sac and allows tears to drain normally again.
11. Maxillo-facial deformities : These are irregularities or malformations in the bones or soft tissues of the jaw and lower part of the face. They can arise from various conditions like cleft lip, cleft palate, trauma related to road accident or diseases such as cancer. They are ranged from mild to severe. Surgical correction of these deformities can improve the functional & aesthetic aspect.

Ptosis: Low or drooping upper lids :Ptosis is a condition whereby the natural position of the upper eyelid is droopy or sagging and limits a person's field of vision. Ptosis caused by injury to the muscle, congenital defect, muscle disorders, nerve disorders, or aging can obstruct vision and/or create a tired or aged appearance. Correcting this problem involves surgery to repair the muscle and support the eyelid
Ectropion or Outward turning of lids :Ectropion is the medical term used to describe sagging and outward turning of the lower eyelid and eyelashes. The margin of the eyelid and the eyelashes revert (turn out) . This rubbing can lead to excessive tearing, crusting of the eyelid, mucous discharge and irritation of the eye.

The margin of the eyelid and the eyelashes invert (turn in). This rubbing can lead to excessive tearing, crusting of the eyelid, mucous discharge and irritation of the eye.
