Why Choose an ASOPRS Oculofacial Plastic Surgeon for your Eyelid Surgery?

Updated: Sep 29, 2023

When it comes to eyelid surgery, choosing the right surgeon is crucial for ensuring the best possible results. While there are many qualified surgeons out there, one group of specialists that stands out is the surgeons of the American Society of Ophthalmic Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery (ASOPRS).

ASOPRS is a professional society of oculofacial plastic surgeons who have met the highest standards of education, training, and experience in the field of eyelid and periocular surgery. ASOPRS surgeons are board-certified ophthalmologists who have completed additional fellowship training in plastic and reconstructive surgery of the eyelids, orbit (eye socket), and lacrimal (tear) system. They are committed to providing the highest quality of care to their patients. The society's mission is to advance the art and science of oculoplastic and reconstructive surgery, educate physicians and the public, and promote high standards of ethical conduct.

ASOPRS surgeons' training in both ophthalmology and plastic surgery makes them particularly well-suited for eyelid surgery. They have in-depth knowledge of the anatomy and function of the eyes, as well as the skills and experience to work in this delicate area safely and effectively. They are also experts in dealing with the unique challenges that come with eyelid surgery, such as incision placement, fat removal and (most-importantly) preserving the function of the eyelid.

Another reason to choose an ASOPRS surgeon for your eyelid surgery is that they are committed to staying up-to-date with the latest techniques and technologies. ASOPRS surgeons must participate in ongoing education and training, and must pass oral and written examinations to maintain their certification. This ensures that they are always aware of the most advanced techniques and technologies, and are able to offer their patients the best possible care.

Always trust your eyelids to an ASOPRS oculofacial plastic surgeon.
