I have had two surgeries for the upper and lower eyelids. Neither came out satisfactory. The shape of my eyes have changed. I would like to try one more time. The other two susgeries were with a plasticsurgeon and a facial plastic surgeon. I want to try to get this one right. I would like to see some one around the Texas, La. or southern states since this is where I am located.
Is It Better to See an Ocuplastic Surgeon Who Has ASOPRS Behind His Name
Doctor Answers (2)
ASOPRS is the certifying organization for oculofacial plastic surgeons
The letters behind a surgeons name are not nearly as important as the skill in his hands and judgment.
Eyelid surgery is commonly performed by plastic surgeons, facial plastic surgeons (ENT), or oculoplastic surgeons (ophthalmology). After 2 unsatisfactory operations, it is imperative that the third is the last. Go to someone who has lots of experience working with complications of eyelid surgery (and not his own).
