Wilmington Eye recently announced the addition of Dr. Molly Orban, a fellowship-trained surgeon in ophthalmic plastic, reconstructive and orbital surgery.

Orban will be joining Wilmington Eye's oculoplastic team, comprised of Dr. Alan Oester Jr., Dr. George Escaravage and Tracey McKinzie, PA-C, to provide care that includes cancer reconstructive surgery, upper and lower eyelid lifts, eyelid malposition repair and an emphasis on aesthetic services, according to a news release.

The release stated the market in the U.S. for noninvasive and invasive cosmetic procedures reached $18.8 billion in 2021 and is expected to grow at a rate of 4.3% from 2021 to 2030. With the addition of Orban, Wilmington Eye "will be more poised to meet the growing demand for aesthetic services that the practice has seen at their oculoplastic center in the midtown area. Dr. Orban's training in oculoplastic surgery uniquely positions her to provide high-level aesthetic assessments and procedures that make up the fastest growing segments in non-invasive cosmetic procedures."

Orban is originally from Jupiter, Florida, and attended the University of Florida in Gainesville where she earned a bachelor's degree in human nutrition. She received her medical degree from the University of Central Florida College of Medicine and went on to complete a one-year transitional year internship at the University of Central Florida and Osceola Regional Medical Center.

She completed her ophthalmology residency at Storm Eye Institute in Charleston, South Carolina, where she served as the chief resident during her senior year. Orban then went on to complete her fellowship training in ophthalmic plastic, reconstructive, and orbital surgery with Oester at Wilmington Eye, the release stated.

"Not only will she enhance our oculoplastic department to serve patients more efficiently, she will also lead and expand our cosmetic services with her unique aesthetic perspective," said Escaravage, partner, oculoplastic surgeon and fellowship instructor at Wilmington Eye, in the release.

Orban said in the release, "I love the aesthetic side of oculoplastic surgery and applying the latest technologies and products to my practice to offer my patients the best in facial rejuvenation and eye care."

Orban is accepting new patients at Wilmington Eye's Oculoplastic Center, 1025 Medical Center Drive, suite 201.
