Why Choose an ASOPRS Surgeon?

Scholars have long recognized that eyes are the center of facial expression. They provide critical cues in gauging emotions and shaping social behavior. Choosing a surgeon to treat problems in this delicate area is an important decision. The American Society of Ophthalmic Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, established in 1969, is the world’s largest organization of surgeons dedicated exclusively to the health and beauty of the eyes and face. All members are board-certified medical doctors who have trained 4 years as interns and residents in ophthalmology followed by fellowship training in aesthetic and reconstructive procedures of the eyelids, eye sockets, tear ducts and face. Most ASOPRS surgeons have trained 6 years or more and before becoming members, all candidates must submit scientific research and pass rigorous oral and written examinations.

An individual may be a candidate for blepharoplasty if they experience these symptoms, or if they are simply unhappy with the appearance of their eyelids.
