Our Cosmetic and Oculoplastics Center is a full-service center for cosmetic, aesthetics, reconstructive, and corrective procedures of the eye and the surrounding structures, such as the eyelids, tear ducts, and orbital socket.
Whether your concerns are caused by aging, facial trauma, eyelid abnormalities, or symptoms of a disease or underlying condition, Milan Eye Center offers the latest treatment options to help keep your eyes as beautiful and healthy as possible.
Having surgery is always a big decision- along with research about the procedure, you also look at the recovery times and physician’s surgical experience. When looking at oculoplastics particularly, these types of procedures can sometimes overlap with the same procedures offered at a plastic surgeon’s office.
Oculoplastic surgeons and plastic surgeons are similar in a sense that they both perform reconstructive surgeries and cosmetic procedures on the face, however, there are notable differences you should take under consideration when choosing the physician and surgery.
Unlike plastic surgeons, an oculoplastic surgeon’s training begins after medical school when they do an internship with a residency in ophthalmology or eye surgery. This allows the physician to understand the eye and surrounding areas, including muscles, in full detail. Once the physician completes this residency, they continue on to a fellowship which involves fine-tuning their skills, knowledge and suturing techniques in order to perform precise eyelid and facial plastic surgery. This type of training can easily translate with a careful touch of detail when dealing with the bodies’ most delicate area of skin.
Just like learning more about the surgeon, you can learn more about the procedure itself and the ongoing list of benefits it has to offer. For some, eyelid surgery is strictly cosmetic. We want to get rid of the puffy undereye area or lighten up our dark circles, however, for others, it is more about the functional outcome of increasing our visual field and ability to see the world as we age. Imagine waking up and feeling like you had stayed up all night without any sleep, your eyes feel heavy and you have to concentrate to constantly keep your lids open. For some, this is an everyday occurrence even with adequate sleep. As we age, our skin loses elasticity and it can become less firm and supple. The constant pull of gravity can cause eyelids to droop and show signs of wrinkles and fine lines – all of which can make you feel and look older and less vibrant.

Oculoplastic surgery is a general term used to describe a variety of surgical procedures that involve the face, eyelids, tear ducts, and orbit. Here at Milan Eye Center, we offer a variety of surgical and non-surgical options that can be considered medically necessary or strictly cosmetic. When you are seen by our board-certified oculofacial surgeon, they will determine if the procedure is deemed functional or not. If it is functional, there is a chance it can be submitted for insurance coverage.
Our ophthalmic plastic surgeons offer a number of surgical and non-surgical treatments (i.e. brow lifts and eyelid surgeries) for patients who want to fight the signs of aging and achieve a more youthful, refreshed appearance. We also offer laser skin treatments to reverse damage and make your skin glow with little to no downtime.
Many factors such as trauma, diseases, genetic predispositions, and other causes can make reconstructive or corrective surgery or treatments of the eyelids necessary for better health and improved quality of life. We offer a number of surgical and non-surgical treatment options for people who have eyelid deformities, lesions around the eyelids, issues with eyelid closing or blinking, and other issues that require corrective or reconstructive work.
We also offer comprehensive treatment options that can help people who suffer from watery eyes, orbital tumors, facial paralysis, and other diseases and conditions that can negatively affect the natural function of the eyes.
Wrinkles, frown lines, and loss of fullness in the face can make you look tired and less alert. We offer a number of minimally invasive injectable and filler solutions to patients looking for a non-surgical solution to these common age-related eye and face concerns. From Botox for wrinkles in the brow to Latisse for thicker, longer eyelashes that you have always wanted, our vast selection of cosmetic injectables and fillers give patients a wealth of options to help them achieve their beauty and anti-aging goals.
