Oculo What? Understanding Oculofacial Plastic Surgery

Eye Procedures Chicago ILDr. Daniel S. Tresley is a board-certified ophthalmologist and one of the few oculofacial plastic surgeons in the Chicago area. His credentials, experience, and commitment to excellence are why his patients know that they will receive exceptional care in every regard. Here are a few of the other benefits of working with an oculofacial plastic surgeon.

An Eye for Medical and Cosmetic Conditions

An oculofacial plastic surgeon has received specialized training in the anatomical structures of the eye area. This includes the bone, muscles, cartilage, and skin. For patients, this translates into diagnostic, treatment and surgical services that address medical and cosmetic concerns, such as:

  • Tearing disorders
  • Orbital conditions
  • Cosmetic and functional surgery on the eyelids
  • Anti-aging treatments for the eye area
  • Skin treatments for signs of aging, abnormal growths, and other concerns

Outpatient Procedures

Most of the procedures that are performed by oculofacial plastic surgeons are done so on an outpatient basis. You return home the day of your procedure, so you do not have to stay overnight in the hospital. This aspect of working with an oculofacial plastic surgeon improves patient outcomes by minimizing costs and the time away from caretakers and loved ones.

Treatments for Adults and Children

Eye conditions affect children and adults, and an oculofacial plastic surgeon understands how to tailor treatments to the age of the patient. Children who are still in their developmental stages require special considerations before having any surgery. For older patients, the aging process should be taken into consideration. Working with an oculofacial plastic surgeon allows you to develop a lifelong relationship with your surgeon that is based on trust, open communication and in-depth understanding of your emotional and physical well-being.

Make 2018 An Eye-Opening Experience

Cosmetic Surgical Services Chicago ILThe eyes are the most extraordinary feature of the human body. They not only allow us to see the world, but the eyes also capture people’s attention and share a piece of our personal stories. The aging process makes subtle changes to the eye area that miscommunicate how we feel. We may look tired, angry or frustrated when we are feeling joyous, delighted and beyond happy. Fortunately, Dr. Daniel Tresley can help. As a board-certified ophthalmologist and oculofacial plastic surgeon, he offers cosmetic surgical procedures, as well as non-surgical eye rejuvenation treatments.

The Effects of Aging on Your Eyes

The aging process affects the eye area just as it does other parts of your face and body. The delicate skin around the eyes may lose elasticity, which causes it to sag and develops fine lines. Facial fat also shifts, and this is most obvious in the upper eyelids.

Common Signs of Aging Around the Eyes

The most common signs of aging around the eyes are:

  • Fine lines at the corners of the eyes (crow’s feet)
  • Sagging upper and lower eyelids
  • Vertical lines between the eyes
  • Horizontal creases across the forehead

Popular Eye Rejuvenation Treatments

Dr. Tresley offers several eye rejuvenation treatments.

  • Blepharoplasty: Eyelid surgery helps with sagging of the upper and lower eyelids. Performing the surgery on the lower eyelids also helps with fine lines and bags under the eyes.
  • Brow/Forehead Lift: The brow and forehead area may sag with age, and this creates horizontal lines on the forehead and may also make the eyes look tired and less alert.
  • Botox®, Dysport®, and Xeomin®: These injectable treatments provide temporary anti-aging benefits for several months and work by relaxing muscles that pinch the skin. Treatment takes less than one hour, and no downtime is required.
