Oculoplastic & Facial Plastic Surgery

Our Oculoplasitc and Facial Plastic Surgery team specializes in the evaluation and treatment of both cosmetic and functional abnormalities that affect the eyelids, eyebrows, cheeks, orbital tissues, bones and tear drainage system.

We specialize in both functional facial reconstructive surgery and cosmetic facial plastic surgery.  Functional oculoplastic and facial reconstructive surgery involve repairing areas that are causing visual imparities.  Congenital defects, eye/facial disorders, aging, burns, tumors, and other trauma injuries may require functional reconstructive and plastic surgery on and around the eye or eyelids.  With Cosmetic facial plastic surgery, we understand that although surgery is not need to improve your vision, you may elect to have surgery to help improve your self image by enhancing facial features such as the eyelids.   We can discuss your vision with you and work towards helping you look your best. 

Because we are a part of University of Utah Health Care, we have an extensive team that includes, Otolaryngology, Neuro-Radiology, Neurosurgery, Dermatology, and the Craniofacial team.

Ophthalmic plastic and reconstructive surgeons at the Moran Eye Center are board certified ophthalmologists who have completed additional and very specialized training in plastic surgery of the eyes and their surrounding structures.
