Oculoplasty, one of the oldest branches of ophthalmology, attempts to address the ills of the orbit, eyelids and the lacrimal system.
However, there are a lot of myths about this cosmetic, corrective and reconstructive procedure especially since it concerns the eyes, one of the most sensitive organs of the human body
Botulinum toxin isn’t a surgical option
It most certainly is and the good news is that apart from reducing wrinkles, it can treat migraine too
Oculoplastic procedures are exclusively cosmetic in nature
Oculoplastic treatments cover the most complex part of the face, the area around the eyes. They are essential for visual relief, but critical for vision
Installation of grafts or flaps for eyelids is superfluous
On the contrary, several kinds of skin cancers and malignant melanomas are treated using flaps, grafts and other reconstructive surgeries
Eyelift surgery (Blepharoplasty) is ornamental
This myth is all thanks to its nomenclature. Apart from ‘lifting’ excess fat or skin, the procedure is corrective for various problems like entropion, droopy eyelids (ptosis), eyelid tumors and ectropion
Oculoplasty is painful
No. Performed under the influence of local anaesthesia, though there may be small snags due to the prick of the anaesthetic injection, there’s hardly any hurt in the procedure itself. For extra panicky patients, an anesthesiologist may be ushered in to provide comfort
