Dr. Javier Fernández is responsible of this Unit. Reconstruction surgery and / or beautification of the periocular area, given its direct relationship with the organ of vision, must be performed by an ophthalmologist, specialized in Oculoplastic Surgery. Here, reconstructive surgeries are performed to correct eyelid positions such as drooping eyelids, ectropion (eyelid turns outwards) and entropion (eyelid turns inwards). Treatment and reconstruction of eyelid tumours of any kind are also performed.
We specialize in cosmetic surgery of the eyelids, known as blepharoplasty. This intervention is always done on an outpatient basis under local anesthesia and gives a rejuvenated natural appearance to the surrounding area of the eye. Thus, we remove the excess skin that forms on the upper eyelids due to aging. Then, we reconstruct the eyelid crease by using micro incisions that are hidden in natural skin folds. At the level of the lower lids, we eliminate the so- called bags by transconjunctival approach using the most modern techniques of fat redistribution to avoid a sunken appearance of the eyes after surgery.
We are pioneers in the Brow Lift. This surgery is performed by means of an endoscopic system with a micro camera through small incisions in the scalp that leave no visible scar. This surgery achieves very natural results, raising eyebrows and removing forehead wrinkles. We often perform both brow lift and blepharoplasty simultaneously.
One of the innovations that, we have added recently, is the treatment of blocked drainage tear duct (dacryocystorhinostomy) using endonasal techniques. This prevents any cut in the skin and the recovery period is shortened dramatically with regard to external classical approach.
We are also experts in the treatment of thyroid ophthalmopathy. Thanks to our collaboration with Dr. Silvia Wengrowicz, a national reference in the treatment of hyperthyroidism, our patients benefit from a comprehensive treatment of their hyperthyroid state and their ophthalmopathy.
