Or, if you have eye problems caused by injury, trauma or medical condition and treatment, we can repair the eye area or restore a range of facial movements with very intricate surgeries or some nonsurgical options.

This means we can go beyond the surface to help you look your very best. Contact us today to find a customized treatment plan that works best for you.

Eye conditions

  • Droopy eyelids  Also called ptosis, droopy eyelids can affect only one or both eyes. If the upper eyelid falls enough, the drooping eyelid can interfere with vision.
  • Dermatochalasis  Slightly different than droopy eyelids, this condition is often referred to as “baggy eyes.” An excess of skin in either the upper or lower eyelid can impact appearance and make one look tired or older than they are. Whether you have droopy or baggy eyelids or are unhappy with the appearance of your eyelids for another reason, a blepharoplasty (or eye bag removal) can be done to upper lids, lower lids or both. This can restore a more youthful appearance and may also improve vision by removing excess skin. 
  • Orbital fracture  This includes any break to the bones around the eye socket. These delicate bones require careful repair to restore appearance and protect vision. When the facial bones around the eye are broken, treatment requires careful planning and delicate technique. The facial plastic surgeons at Ohio State have specialized training and certification in facial plastic and reconstructive surgery. 
  • Thinning eyelashes  The eyelashes serve as a frame to your eyes. As they thin with aging or due to illness, it can affect your looks. We can prescribe Latisse® to improve the strength, length and fullness of your eyelashes. Latisse® is a topical solution applied daily to improve strength, length and fullness of eyelashes.

How much does cosmetic eye surgery cost?

The cost of eye plastic surgery varies by procedure. Because they're considered cosmetic, most insurance companies also do not cover eye treatments or procedures. Please call 614-366-3687 to schedule an appointment with a facial plastic surgeon near you to discuss treatment options and costs.
