Eyelid surgeon in Boston

You have many good choices in the Boston area. I would personally recommend my colleagues and friends Frank Fechner in Worcester and Jeannie Chung. Dr. Gliklich at the Mass Eye and Ear would also do a great job.

Boston has many great eyelid surgeons.

Boston has many great eyelid surgeons. Go to and find the docs who are in this group and who are Board Certified Plastic surgeons. Visit several oflfices and choose the one you like. You can't go wrong.

Plastic surgeons do more eyelid surgery than other docs, so look for one. Talk to some post op patients.

But most importantly, talk to the Plasstic Surgeon. You will realize who is the right one for you.

Lower eyelid surgeon

Dear Sophia,

I recommend you get a consultation with someone who is an expert at cosmetic eyelid surgery.  While there are many oculoplastic surgeons in Boston (you can search for them on or the websites), only one or two have a true focus on cosmetic procedures.  There are also many other qualified facial plastic and general plastic surgeons.  I would also recommend asking your family doctor, friends, hairdressers/aestheticians.  Hopefully you will find the same name coming up from multiple sources.  

Good Luck,

Finding Best Eyelid Surgeon Nearby

These are all great questions. The key is to find the most experienced plastic surgeon to examine you and answer them rather then relying on random opinions in this forum. Expert Eyelid surgeons include Board Certified Plastic Surgeons, Facial Plastic Surgeons (ENT), and ophthalmology. There is no such thing as a "eyelid fellowship". The most critical decision to be made in achieving the best plastic surgical result is picking the most experienced and talented, that is the best, plastic surgeon possible. Too often, patients choose a physician based on a catchy ad, the brand name of a technique, the basis of one or two before and after photos, or their web site’s search engine ranking. These criteria will not find the most experienced and talented plastic surgeon. See the below link on how I would research the identity of the best plastic surgeon for your eyelid surgery.

Eyelid Surgeon in Boston


There are many well qualified eye plastic surgeons in Boston.  I recommend you find a member of the American Society of Ophthalmic Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery and ask to see photographs of their surgeries.  The website is ASOPRS(dot)org.
