Oculofacial surgery is an ophthalmic subspecialty that addresses cosmetic and reconstructive concerns of the eyelids, the lacrimal (tear) system, the socket and the orbit (the region surrounding the eyeball), all of which are critical for vision. Injuries, congenital defects, infections, tumors, diseases and aging can greatly affect the eyelids and the surrounding tissues, thus causing pain, eye damage, disfigurement and vision loss.
An experienced oculofacial surgeon has undergone special fellowship training and offers a variety of both functional and aesthetic procedures. Our oculofacial surgeon can reconstruct the eyelids, correct eyelid malpositions, remove growths on the face and eyelids, and rebuild the critical structures surrounding the eye.
Takle Eye Group is proud to have Leiv M. Takle Jr. MD providing oculofacial and reconstructive surgery for our patients in Griffin, GA and the surrounding communities.
Oculofacial Surgery for Reconstructive Purposes
At Takle Eye Group in Griffin, GA. We specialize in the medical and surgical treatment of a variety of eye conditions. Reconstructive oculofacial surgery can be used to repair eyelid disorders such as ptosis (droopy eyelids), sagging (ectropion) or in-turning (entropion) of the lower eyelids, orbital and facial bone fractures, blocked tear ducts, excessive tearing, and tumors around the eyes and elsewhere on the face.

Oculofacial Surgery for Cosmetic Purposes
In addition to surgeries for reconstructive issues, at Takle Eye Group we offer advanced surgical procedures and minimally invasive treatments to address aesthetic concerns. Through eyelid surgery, we can remove extra skin and fat from the upper eyelids and reduce the appearance of bags beneath the eyes. We can also correct malpositioned eyelids, such as retracted lids, and deformities that result from previous cosmetic eyelid surgery. With brow lift, we can lift droopy brows and minimize forehead creases. Facial lines and wrinkles that form as a result of aging, frowning and/or sun damage can be treated with minimally invasive cosmetic procedures offered at Takle Eye Group including Botox and dermal fillers. These products are known to temporarily induce significant wrinkle reduction.
