Super-specialization in oculoplastic surgery

The oculoplastic surgeon (superspecialized ophthalmologist) is the one who deals specifically with the eyelids, tear ducts and orbit. These delicate structures around the eye need the understanding and experience of an ophthalmologist and the treatment of a plastic surgeon.

Therefore, it is ideal to entrust such work to an eye specialist who has completed years of additional training in eye plastic surgery.

Aesthetic but also functional

Very often, problems in the field of oculoplastics are not only cosmetic, but also interfere with the visual function, comfort and well-being of the patient. During the consultation, the oculoplastic surgeon will establish the diagnosis and the treatment options and present you with the advantages and disadvantages of each.

Your doctor will balance all the details and measurements so that the result is aesthetically pleasing but without affecting the functions of the eye.

No scalpel: Advanced radiofrequency technology – radiosurgery

An indisputable novelty on the medical market is the performance of surgical interventions using diathermy with radio waves (with a frequency of 4.0 MHz) as an alternative to the scalpel.
The Clario Clinic has the patented Ellman Surgitron Dual surgical platform, which uses this technology.
Recent clinical studies have shown that Ellman produces 73% less thermal damage than electrosurgery or laser technologies.

What are the advantages of radiosurgery?
– Accuracy
– Fast healing – thanks to precise cutting, wounds heal much faster and are hardly visible
– Less risk of swelling after the procedure
– Less postoperative pain – minimal tissue destruction
– Excellent cosmetic effect


Frequent questions

What is the difference between oculoplastic and plastic surgery?

Oculoplastic surgery is a subspecialty of ophthalmology that focuses on surgery around the eyes and face. After medical school, oculoplastic surgeons complete their residency in ophthalmology, where they delve into the intricate details of the eye, eyelids, and tissue surrounding the facial region. After residency in ophthalmology, these doctors complete a super-specialization in oculoplastic surgery.

Plastic surgery is a subspecialty of general surgery. After medical school, a doctor who wants to become a plastic surgeon will complete his residency in plastic and reconstructive surgery covering every area of the body (breasts, abdomen, arms, face, legs, etc.).

Similar to oculoplastic surgery, plastic surgery can be used to achieve a younger appearance but is also used for medical purposes. Plastic surgery helps trauma survivors, burn victims, and other patients with complex medical challenges regain lost functionality and live better lives.

What’s the difference?
While plastic surgeons are well trained in the reconstruction of the entire body, oculoplastic surgeons are specialists in the functioning of the eye and the facial regions around the eye. This expertise in ophthalmology and training in complex eye surgery is key to ensuring patients achieve optimal aesthetic and functional outcomes.

What is blepharoplasty?

Blepharoplasty, also known as an eyelid lift, is a surgical procedure that removes excess skin, fat and muscle from the eyelids. This is a common procedure that is performed to improve the appearance of the eyelids, improve vision and reduce the signs of aging.

As we age, the skin on our eyelids begins to lose its elasticity and stretch. This can lead to wrinkles, bags under the eyes and droopy eyelids. Blepharoplasty can eliminate these problems and make the eyes look younger and more alert.

Blepharoplasty can be performed on the upper eyelids, lower eyelids or both. The surgery usually takes about an hour and is usually performed under local anesthesia, but can also be performed under general anesthesia.
