Oculo What? Understanding Oculofacial Plastic Surgery
- Posted on: Feb 28 2018
Dr. 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
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.
