Oculoplastics / Orbit Surgery

Ophthalmic Plastic Surgery, known as Oculoplastic surgery, is the cosmetic, corrective, and reconstructive surgery of the tissues around the eye.

An oculoplastic surgeon manages and repairs problems primarily related to the tissues or structures surrounding the eye, rather than the eyeball itself. These structures include the eyelids, the tear ducts, and the orbit.

Oculoplastic surgeons are board-certified ophthalmologists who have completed several years of additional, highly specialized training in Ophthalmic Plastic Surgery.

Orbit Surgery, on the other hand, requires an exquisite understanding of microneurosurgical techniques as well as microanatomic knowledge to safely perform surgery in and around the orbit.

Doctor Piva’s patients’ profit from his acquired expertise and surgical skills patiently and dedicatedly developed over years of formal training not only in Ophthalmology, neuro-ophthalmology and eyelid/orbit surgery but also in Neurosurgery as well.

Though most oculoplastic surgery specialists would have extensive experience performing eyelid surgery, Orbit surgery specialists, in particular, require of a dedicated well-established practice with a vast number of cases per year in order to obtain and maintain the necessary skills to reassure patient’s safety and adequate surgical result.

Dr. Piva offers a years long carrier caring for orbit and eyelid surgery patients and proudly acknowledges his affiliation and full time dedication to academic medicine, as professor of medicine and surgery at the University of Costa Rica School of Medicine.
