Oculoplastic Surgery in Anderson, South Carolina
Some may hear the words “plastic surgery” and think that those procedures can only be used to improve looks. While they often are used that way, there are functional plastic surgery procedures as well! Our physicians perform both functional and cosmetic oculoplastic surgery which can help our patients see better, look better and enjoy more comfort. Our oculoplastic services offered here at Medicus include:
Blepharoplasty. This procedure is performed for patients that have excessive upper eyelid skin/drooping. This procedure may be done for functional reasons, cosmetic reasons, or both.
Ptosis (droopy eyelid) repair. This procedure aims to strengthen weak muscles around the eye, which cause the eye to droop.
Lid malposition correction. This procedure can correct lid problems such as entropion or ectropion, which cause the eyelid to turn inward or outward.
We have been using Botox at Medicus eye group since 1986, much longer than almost any other practice in South Carolina. Originally developed for use in children with crossed eyes, Botox now has many medical and cosmetic uses. It is effective for reducing and preventing wrinkles on the face and this is the most common way we use it. We also use it to treat medical conditions, such as eyelid and facial spasms.
