Why You Need an Oculoplastic Surgeon for Your Eyelid Surgery Beverly Hills, CA

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.

If you are researching eyelid surgery, your first step is to find an experienced oculoplastic surgeon for your procedure. Kami Parsa, MD Oculoplastic Surgery in Beverly Hills, CA is an excellent choice for any eyelid plastic surgery. Contact our team to schedule a personal consultation with Dr. Parsa to discuss your procedure.

Words cannot express how thankful and appreciative I am to have found you. I am deeply grateful for you, for your generosity and caring nature as pertaining to my medical condition. As you know, I was apprehensive about having further surgery, but you are and have been reassuring and confident in the type of procedure you would perform in order to fix my eyelid from the beginning. The fact that you are not pushy and gave me the time and space to make the decision on my own allowed me to prepare myself mentally and emotionally, that really made a difference. Besides from that, your continuous generosity made me confident that you were the right doctor for the task at hand. You will never know how appreciative I am of that. I would also like to let you know how pleased I am with the results of the surgery. I have not felt this comfortable in years. My parents are also very grateful since this was my 14th surgery. You have a true gift. Thank you again for your patience, time, concern, and overall care. I pray that God continues to give you strength to help people who truly need life-changing medical procedures.

Dr. Parsa is an amazing doctor. Warm and very caring. I had my eyes done a couple years ago and I couldn't be happier. Dr. Parsa likes to take the conservative approach which I greatly appreciate in a doctor when it comes to cosmetic surgery. I also go to Dr. Parsa for Botox and he always knows just the right amount. The staff in Dr. Parsa's office are all terrific!
