How often does Dr. Iyengar perform eyelid surgery?
We believe there is no substitute for appropriate training for surgical procedure. If you are having knee surgery or heart surgery, you want the surgeon who does that procedure regularly and has the highest level of formal training. Oculoplastic surgeons who are members of the American Society of Ophthalmic Plastic and Reconstructive (www.asoprs.org) have the highest formal training in eyelid surgery in all medical specialties. This is why oculoplastic surgeons are who other plastic surgeons look to when eyelid surgery does not go as planned or in cases of greater complexity. In our San Diego practice, Dr. Iyengar performs eyelid surgery everyday and why many of his physician colleagues choose our practice for their own eyelid surgery. This makes the whole process refined, routine, and puts patients at ease knowing they are in the most experienced hands for their blepharoplasty, cosmetic eyelid surgery, or eyelid reconstruction. We feel details matter in eyelid surgery and operating on the eyelid is different from operating on the rest of the body. Millimeters matter in measuring where the eyelid crease or incision will be made. Performing these eyelid measurements is much more accurate when your surgeon is making those measurements everyday.
