Surgery involving the delicate structures around the eyes is not to be taken lightly. The results could not only impact how you look but also how you see and feel. These procedures include blepharoplasty, ptosis repair, tear duct repair, orbital surgery, skin cancer reconstruction, and others. While plastic surgeons excel in many areas of cosmetic surgery, an oculoplastic surgeon can offer numerous advantages when the problem specifically relates to the eyes. That’s why Key-Whitman Cosmetic Center offers patients a board-certified team of oculoplastic surgeons: Dr. Leslie Pfeiffer, MD and Dr. Lauren May, MD.
Specialized Training and Expertise:
Oculoplastic surgeons have earned a unique position within the medical field, as experts in plastic surgery around the eyes. They spend two years after ophthalmology residency in highly competitive training to perform these delicate procedures. This comprehensive training equips them with a deep understanding of the complex anatomy of the eyelids and their surrounding structures. Consequently, they become adept at addressing both cosmetic and functional concerns, ensuring not only aesthetic enhancements but also preserving optimal eye health.
One of the key advantages of choosing an oculoplastic surgeon is their ability to treat a wide range of functional issues related to the eyes. Their specialized knowledge allows them to address conditions such as ptosis (droopy eyelids), blocked tear ducts, and eyelid malposition, all of which may affect both vision and eye comfort. Additionally, their expertise extends to more complex challenges, including the reconstruction of damaged eyelids following trauma or the removal of orbital tumors.
Experience and Continual Advancements:
Oculoplastic surgeons dedicate their entire professional practice to the areas around the eyelid, enabling them to accumulate vast experience in the field. Their specialization ensures they remain up to date with the latest advancements and techniques, incorporating them into their practice to deliver the highest standard of care.
The delicate nature of eye-related aesthetic concerns necessitates specific proficiency in the field. Key-Whitman Cosmetic Center’s oculoplastic surgeons have specialized skills and daily experience working on areas around the eye that is often unmatched by general plastic surgeons. Their specialized training, comprehensive care approach and ongoing commitment to professional development leads to outstanding results for our patients.
