Why Choose an Oculoplastic Surgeon?

Why Choose an Ophthalmologist Accredited by ABOto?
Patients who are in need of complex or sensitive cosmetic eye care procedures should carefully determine whether the ophthalmologist is board certified by the ABOto, which is the foremost certification authority in its field. An ABOto certification will ensure that the ophthalmologist has undergone advanced training and has proven capabilities to perform various eye care procedures, including surgery.
While complications in eye surgery will be rare when it is performed by a top eye surgeon, it is still better to choose a surgeon who has hospital privileges. This ensures hospital access to the patient in the event of an emergency. Hospitals follow highly rigorous selection standards and conduct detailed background checks before granting staff privileges to eye surgeons.
A cosmetic eye surgery is a highly personalized procedure from the first consultation to recovery. Success in this procedure can be ensured when there is an instinctive trust and free and frank engagement between the patient and the surgeon. The highest patient satisfaction levels are typically achieved where the personal rapport between the surgeon and the patient is excellent and cordial.
