Mr. Sri Kamalarajah

Mr. Sri Kamalarajah is a Consultant Ophthalmic and Oculoplastic Surgeon with a specialist interest in oculoplastic, lacrimal and orbital disorders. He is based at the Royal Victoria Hospital and also has sessions in the Mater and Downpatrick Hospitals.

He is a Fellow of The Royal College of Ophthalmologists (RCOphth), member of The British Medical Association (BMA) and British Oculoplastic Surgeons Society (BOPSS).

Mr. Kamalarajah graduated in Medicine and Surgery from the University of Dundee. He completed his basic Ophthalmic training in the Royal Victoria Hospital, Belfast. During this time he also undertook a period of ophthalmic research towards a Doctor of Medicine at Queen’s University Belfast.

Mr. Kamalarajah became a Fellow in Oculoplastic, Orbital and Lacrimal surgery at Moorfields Eye Hospital, London in 2002. This was followed by his appointment to Altnagelvin Hospital as a Consultant Ophthalmic and Oculoplastic Surgeon in 2003. He moved to the Belfast Trust in June 2011, where he is currently based.

An oculoplastic surgeon is a surgeon who has first been trained as an ophthalmologist (eye surgeon). In addition to the basic ophthalmic surgical training the oculoplastic surgeon has then received additional highly specialized training in oculoplastic surgery which provides the skills required to perform both cosmetic eyelid surgery and functional/rehabilitative surgery around the eyes. This specialist knowledge and training is essential when performing very delicate surgery relating to the upper and lower eyelids and other structures around the eyes e.g. the tear drainage pathway.

Mr Kamalarajah is a fellowship-trained ophthalmic plastic surgeon who has a vast amount of experience with the use of facial botulinum toxin injections. He was trained in the use of these injections during his fellowship in Moorfields Eye Hospital, London. He has over 15 years of experience of these injections, has given thousands of such injections, and uses these treatments regularly in his practice.

Why Seek the Skills of an Oculoplastic Surgeon?

The eyelid and other areas around the eye are delicate structures that need special understanding and care. Very often the problem at issue is not just cosmetic but interferes with visual function, comfort and well-being. It therefore makes sense to entrust such work to a specialist who has completed years of additional training in oculoplastic surgery as it relates to the eyes and their surrounding facial structures.

The following operations involve oculoplastic surgery:

  • Cosmetic Eyelid Surgery (blepharoplasty)
  • Eyebrow Lift (for droopy/heavy eyebrows)
  • Eyelid Ptosis Surgery (for droopy eyelids)
  • Eyelid Reconstruction following Tumour Excision or Trauma
  • Epiphora – Dacryocystorhinostomy (DCR), Lester Jones Tubes, Lacrimal Stents
  • Enucleation and evisceration (orbital implants)
  • Socket Reconstruction – orbital implants, dermis fat grafts, mucous membrane grafts
  • Eyelid Gold Weights for facial palsy

Non-surgical cosmetic treatments would also include ‘anti-wrinkle injections’ (BOTOX) and facial fillers.
