Why India is now considered the Best Location for Orbitotomy Surgery

Posted by Oculoplastic Eyelid Orbit Surgery on April 1st, 2016

For the past five years, India has been included in the top 10 surgery hot spots in the world. Plastic surgery here is not all about breast augmentation and liposuction. In India, eyelid surgery and orbitotomy are also very popular. Orbitotomy is the surgical incision of the eye or orbit. There are many reasons why patients undergo orbitotomy procedures, one of which is to treat orbital diseases. This can include orbital pseudotumor, thyroid eye diseases, and proptosis. There are general four types of orbital surgery:

  1. Lateral orbitotomy – Cuts are sawed through the lateral orbit and the bone is either removed or rewired.
  2. Anterior orbitotomy – This approach does not require any bone removal.
  3. Medial orbitotomy – This is usually used when a sinus procedure is involved.
  4. Complex orbitotomy – This is a combination of two or more of the other orbital surgery procedures.

Surgery may also be necessary for people who have experienced traumas or met with accidents that caused their orbital fractures to change (either orbital floor fracture or zygomaticomaxillary fracture). Of course, you can also go to the surgeon to simply reshape your eyes. It is common in India to have big or what they call ‘bugged out’ eyes. A surgeon can restructure or rewire the bon around the eyes so that they will look more proportional to the face.

If you are looking to have an Orbitotomy surgery, it’s best to go to an Indian clinic because:

  • The surgeon has plenty of experience – Orbitotomy surgery is very popular in India and surgeons should have plenty of background and experience from handling dozens, if not hundreds, of patients.
  • Modern equipment – Since Orbitotomy is in high demand in India, so surgeons here use the latest equipment and techniques for this type of surgery.
  • The clinic is ready – When it comes to Orbitotomy surgery, clinics and hospitals are ready to assist patients. Aside from offering pre-surgery advice, post-surgery support is also offered.

With the increase in demand for orbitotomy and other plastic surgery procedures in India, you should be careful in choosing your surgeon or clinic. It is important that the surgeon has a solid educational background in relevant surgery for orbitotomy. Of course, you will feel more at ease knowing your surgeon has done orbitotomy surgery procedures before. Ask if he or she has a portfolio. This way, you can check on previous or current patients and their before and after photos. Inquire about the surgeon’s expertise. Not all plastic surgeons have relevant experience for orbitotomy procedures.
