Why choose an Oculoplastic Surgeon?
Your face is continuously on display, for all to see. When choosing a surgeon for cosmetic eyelid and face surgery, it is important to consider the physician’s training. Oculoplastic Surgery (also known as Ophthalmic Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, Oculofacial Plastic Surgery) is a subspecialty that focuses on cosmetic and reconstructive aspects of the eyelids, lacrimal (tear) system, the orbit (the bony cavity surrounding the eye), and the adjacent face. An oculoplastic surgeon spends the first 4 years after medical school mastering care of the delicate eye and surrounding tissues, gaining certification as an ophthalmologist. After this already specialized training, an oculoplastic surgeon with membership in the American Society of Ophthalmic Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery completes an additional 2 years of specialized plastic surgery training. This is more specialized eyelid and upper face surgical training than any other type of cosmetic surgeon. Combining knowledge of how to manage the delicate eye with detailed plastic surgery knowledge for the eyelids, an oculoplastic surgeon offers the very best experience to ensure the safest and most cosmetically appealing results after surgery. When you consult with an Oculoplastic Surgeon, you a consulting with a true surgical eyelid expert. Why trust your eyes to anyone else?
