blepharoptosis repair and who accept Medicare (1)?
Blepharoptosis repair is surgery to repair drooping eyelids. In some people, due to stretching or aging of the muscles around the eye, one or both eyelids become harder and harder to open fully. The upper eyelid droops down and may cover part of the eye. This gives a permanently sleepy appearance and may affect vision.
During the surgery, the doctor makes a tiny incision in a tendon near the eye. This tightens and strengthens the muscle that controls the upper eyelid. If needed, a blepharoptosis repair may be done along with blepharoplasty, or the removal of excess tissue that is making the eyelid puffy or saggy.
In certain rare, more severe cases the drooping eyelid is caused by damage to the nerves around the eye. In these cases a surgeon can create a type of sling to attach the upper eyelid to the muscles around the eyebrow, allowing the patient to open and close their eye.
In most cases, the surgery and recovery are both quick and easy. The entire procedure takes only about 15 minutes, is done under local anesthesia, and has a short recovery time.
plastic surgeons who accept Medicare (5)?
- Cosmetic surgery, intended to enhance the appearance. These procedures are usually considered elective, although they can be psychologically very important to patients. Cosmetic procedures seek to increase physical beauty, and can include facelifts, liposuction, and nose jobs.
- Reconstructive surgery, to correct the appearance. Often these procedures are considered medically necessary and treat patients who are experiencing negative effects due to an aspect of their appearance. Procedures that can be considered reconstructive may include the removal of birthmarks and scars, repairs after serious accidents, and the correction of problems such as cleft palate.
- Medical treatments that do not involve surgery. This category of procedures includes Botox, wrinkle treatments, injectable fillers, or medical skin products.
- see patients for routine eye care
- diagnose eye problems
- prescribe glasses, contact lenses, and medications
- provide refractive therapies to correct vision, such as LASIK
- perform surgery on the eye
Otolaryngologists are also called 'ENTs' because their area of specialty is the ears, nose, and throat. Otolaryngologists treat most of the diseases and disorders that affect the head or neck. They can provide routine medical care, such as giving hearing tests or treating chronic conditions such as allergies. Otolaryngologists also perform a number of surgeries on the head and neck. Some of the illnesses and issues that otolaryngologists treat include:
- Ear problems - hearing loss, infections, tinnitus or ringing on the ears, balance disorders, trauma or fracture of the temporal bone, prominent or large ears (using 'ear pinning' plastic surgery)
- Nose issues - sinus infections, allergies, nasal polyps, smell disorders
- Throat issues - voice and swallowing problems, infections or trauma to the larynx or esophagus, sleep disorders (such as sleep apnea)
- Head and neck problems - infections, trauma, tumors, conditions requiring plastic surgery
Because they perform so many delicate surgeries of the face, otolaryngologists are often sought out as plastic surgeons when facial surgery is required. Their specialized knowledge of the anatomy of the head and face can make a real difference in the outcome of a surgery, from a brow lift to a total facial reconstruction after trauma.
