Oculofacial Plastic and Orbital Surgery Clinic
UCSF's Oculofacial Plastic and Orbital Surgery Clinic provides advanced specialty care to meet all of our patients' medical, surgical and aesthetic needs in a state-of-the-art facility. Our expertise includes plastic and reconstructive surgery for the eye area or other parts of the face following injury, illness or cancer treatment. For patients with cosmetic concerns, we offer facial rejuvenation using minimally invasive methods, including Botox injections and soft tissue fillers, as well as surgical procedures, such as forehead and midface lifting to address drooping and furrows, and surgical repair for heavy upper eyelids or lower eyelid bags.
We also specialize in addressing eyelid disorders, such as droopy upper lids, or poorly positioned lower lids as well as problems with the tear drainage system that commonly result in a weepy eye. For patients with orbital disorders (involving the eye socket bones), such as those caused by injuries, tumors, and thyroid eye disease, we offer ultra-specialized surgical options.
Our nationally recognized oculofacial and orbital surgeons are fellowship-trained and members of the American Society of Ophthalmic Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery.
