What is oculoplastic surgery?
Oculofacial plastic surgery, also known as "ophthalmic plastic surgery," is an area of medicine that combines orbital, eyelid, lacrimal, and periorbital surgery with facial plastic surgery, including aesthetic (cosmetic) procedures. This includes areas of overlap between ophthalmology and plastic surgery, neurosurgery, neurology, ENT, and dermatology.
There are currently only about 400 such surgeons in the United States and Canada recognized with Fellowship in the American Society of Ophthalmic Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery (ASOPRS). This organization establishes training criteria for oculofacial plastic surgeons, accredits training programs, and recognizes the successful completion of training programs by fellows (the training level for physicians after completing a residency). ASOPRS is also the current physician credentialing agency for this specialty. The surgeons of Pacific Oculofacial Plastic Surgery have received training in ASOPRS accredited programs.
