Oculofacial Plastic Surgery

Plastic surgeons at Wake Forest Baptist Health Eye Center help restore the appearance and function of patients’ eyes with a variety of reconstructive and cosmetic specialty eye care procedures. 

Whether caused by injury, disease or natural aging, changes in or around the eye are best cared for by trained ophthalmologists, who understand eye function as well as eye appearance.

Wake Forest Baptist Health Eye Center ophthalmologists can help relieve pain and correct damage, vision loss and disfigurement caused by eyelid problems, orbital fractures, orbital tumors, tear duct abnormalities and other conditions. 

Even for elective procedures, such as BOTOX® injections and brow lifts, Wake Forest Baptist Health Eye Center ophthalmologists have the training and experience to ensure patients’ eyes and adjacent areas are protected while being enhanced. They provide personalized care for children and adults. And they coordinate treatment, as needed, with specialists in Neurosurgery, Otolaryngology and other areas of Wake Forest Baptist Health. 

Our specialists also help fix adverse effects of other surgeries in and around the eye — even complications from previous cosmetic treatments.
