An oculoplastic surgeon is a board certified ophthalmologist who has received an additional two years of training focused on plastic surgery of the eyelids and surrounding structures.
At Inland Eye Specialists, we are fortunate to have Jeffrey Joseph, MD, as part of our team. Whether you have a cosmetic, functional or reconstructive concern, we will custom tailor your evaluation and treatment plan.
For those looking for a minimally invasive answer to cosmetic concerns, we offer Botox for wrinkles and fine lines, soft tissue fillers – Restylane and Juvederm- to restore facial volume, skin care treatments, and Latisse for eyelash growth.
Dr. Joseph will tailor your cosmetic surgery to naturally address any concerns you may have. He performs blepharoplasty of the upper eyelids for droopy and sagging skin. In the lower eyelids, he treats puffy eyelid bags with lower eyelid blepharoplasty through a hidden scar approach. He also has a particular interest in blepharoplasty in Asian patients who desire a natural appearing double eyelid crease. For patients with sagging eyebrows, endoscopic forehead rejuvenation may be considered, which avoids any visible scar. During your consultation, he will discuss his findings and present you with the best combination of treatment options to rejuvenate your appearance.
Dr. Joseph also performs the full array of functional oculoplastic surgery. Common eyelid malpositions such as drooping of the upper eyelids (ptosis) in both adults and in children are treated in our practice. Eyelids that are turned in (entropion) or turn out (ectropion) are also treated by restoring normal anatomy and physiology of the eyelids. He also performs revision eyelid surgery to fix complications of cosmetic surgery. We also specialize in reconstructive treatment for eyelid and orbital cancers. Patients with thyroid eye disease (bulging eyes) are also successfully treated in our center.
Our oculoplastic surgeon also specializes in tear duct reconstruction to treat clogged or blocked tear ducts, a common cause of chronic tearing. This can sometimes be performed through the nose using a small camera and avoids creating scar on the skin.
Cosmetic and reconstructive eyelid surgery is an outpatient procedure with a relatively short recovery time. A variety of safe and effective procedures are available to patients troubled with drooping eyelids and unwanted wrinkles.
At Inland Eye Specialist our oculoplastic surgeon has specialized training in reconstructive surgery of the eye region.
