Welcome to Rocky Mountain Eye Center Cosmetics
Our goal is to provide high quality cosmetic and reconstructive surgery of the eyelids and face. Each patient is unique, and our treatment plans are tailored to the individual patient. Dr Hellman’s philosophy is to create a more youthful, refreshed appearance without looking “overdone”. He is a board certified ophthalmologist who underwent fellowship training in oculoplastic surgery. He performs cosmetic and reconstructive surgeries on the eyelids, forehead, and tear drainage system. He also provides less invasive cosmetic enhancements through the use of injectable Botox and dermal fillers.
What is an Ocuplastic Surgeon?
Oculoplastic surgeons are highly skilled, precision-based plastic surgeons who focus on the area around the eyes. Following medical school they receive extensive training in microsurgery of the eye during ophthalmology residency. This is followed by a fellowship in the highly specialized field of oculoplastic surgery. They are the most qualified surgeons to perform cosmetic or functional surgery in the area around the eyes. Some types of oculoplastic surgery can be considered medically necessary and are covered by insurance. For instance, certain eyelid and periocular (area around the eye) issues can affect vision, eye comfort, and eye health.
