Oculoplastic Surgery : Denver, Colorado
Oculoplastic surgery is the cosmetic, corrective, and reconstructive surgery of the eye. It 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 (bony socket surrounding the eye). Ophthalmic plastic surgeons , also known as Oculofacial plastic surgeons, are board-certified ophthalmologists who have completed several years of additional, highly specialized training in plastic surgery.
Dr. Michelle White’s attention to detail and her “small town” approach to patient care sets Elite OculoPlastic Surgery apart from other OculoPlastic practices.

We will provide you with the knowledge and expertise that you deserve. Our goal is to make sure that you understand all of your options and everything our practice has to offer – from Botox to orbital reconstruction.
