Board Certified Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeon

Advances in technology have allowed individuals with face deformities caused by infectious disease, cutaneous neoplasms, congenital malformations, and other accidents to change the physical portion to make it appear more aesthetically acceptable. Most patients that undergo facial reconstructive surgery are categorized as either suffering from congenital or developmental deformities. A person’s face is generally the most visible bodily feature during encounters. Having abnormalities might cause psychological and emotional problems. The ability to alter these deformities through facial reconstructive surgery has allowed a high number of children and adults to feel confident about their appearance.

Some children are born with craniofacial anomalies, meaning a child’s skull or face has not properly formed. The discovery of a craniofacial anomaly can be very difficult for parents worried that the deformities will cause the child painful experiences. Over the years, discoveries in surgery techniques have helped make facial reconstructive surgery more exciting. Over just the past decade the advances made in surgical techniques were previously unimaginable to doctors, making major strides in the way the surgeries are performed.

Choosing a Cosmetic Surgeon: Expertise

When it comes to expertise I have a very straightforward philosophy. I believe in super specialization providing the best care possible and having the expertise to be able to do that. Now what does that mean? In my background, I first trained in surgery. After that I trained in plastic surgery of the eyelids and the face. So that field is called oculofacial plastic surgery. Many people are not aware of this and they look for a general plastic surgeon for eyelid surgery. And although general plastic surgeons get exposure for eyelid surgery many don’t get even close to that level of experience. When it comes to understanding a lot of the complexities of either surgery the reality is that. When it comes to problems or anything that would happen that is unexpected. All doctors in every specialty that does surgery of the eyelids will always look for an oculoplastic or oculofacial plastic surgeon to assist them to help them with their problems.

So in my opinion, being a super specialist is the type of doctor that other doctors would go to. And certainly in my practice I’ve been doing eyelid surgery for 20 years. I’ve definitely seen that we have had many people who are physicians. Physician spouses, physicians relatives when they do their research and they look for the best doctor for an eyelid procedure. They look specifically for the most X the highest level of expertise. In addition to that, I actually focus my practice on cosmetic eyelid surgery. And although there are many complicated procedures related to reconstructive eyelid surgery. A lot of them get incorporated into my expertise and my experience with cosmetic eyelid surgery. So there are many ways to look at this. And one way that I like to explain to people is that many plastic surgeons can do good eyelid surgery but very few can do exceptional eyelid surgery
