Why You Need an Oculoplastic Surgeon for Your Eyelid Surgery
Blepharoplasty and other types of eyelid surgeries can create more alluring, youthful eyes. Most plastic surgeons offer eyelid lifts and eye rejuvenation procedures, but these procedures are not their specialty. Your eyes are a vital part of your appearance, but they are more importantly your source of vision. If you are considering eyelid plastic surgery, it is important to choose an oculoplastic surgeon for your procedure.
Plastic vs Oculoplastic Surgeons
Oculoplastic and plastic surgeons receive the same basic education and training for performing general plastic surgery. An oculoplastic surgeon can perform any of the same procedures as a plastic surgeon, but they specialize in plastic surgery performed around the eyes and orbital bones in the face. General plastic surgeons do not have specific training in oculoplastic surgery, but oculoplastic surgeons receive extensive training and education in this specialized area.
An oculoplastic surgeon has an additional two years or more of training in oculoplastic surgery after their general plastic surgery training. They also perform a residency in ophthalmology to understand the intricacies of the eyes.
Improved Aesthetic and Functional Results
Whether you just want to tighten the eyelids for a rejuvenated appearance or you have ptosis or other eyelid functional issues, you want an expert to perform your eyelid surgery. An oculoplastic surgeon is not dividing their time between breast augmentations, tummy tucks and many other cosmetic surgeries – they focus on the eyes and surrounding features. This means more experience and expertise performing these delicate eyelid surgeries for better cosmetic and functional outcomes.
Dr. Kami Parsa is a highly respected oculoplastic surgeon that focuses solely on the eyes and some surrounding facial features. He does not perform body contouring, breast augmentation or butt lifts – his practice is specialized in plastic and reconstructive eye surgery, as well as some facial surgical and non-surgical rejuvenation.
