Eyes are a vital part of the face, not just from a functional perspective, but also from the point of view of aesthetics. An experienced and qualified cosmetic eye surgeon will be able to achieve the desired aesthetic results with eyelid surgery in a safe and effective manner. Dr. Jennifer Hui is a leading cosmetic eye surgeon providing a wide range of eyelid surgery as well as non-surgical procedures to patients in Palm Springs, Palm Desert, and surrounding communities.
What differentiates Dr. Hui from many other eye surgeons is that she is not only a cosmetic surgeon, but also a qualified oculoplastic surgeon. Her expertise in oculoplasty places her in a fantastic position to perform delicate and complex eyelid surgery procedures.
Who is an Oculoplastic Surgeon?
Many first-time patients who are seeking eyelid surgery may be unaware of the distinction between a cosmetic eye surgeon and an ocuplastic surgeon. An ocuplastic surgeon is an eye care professional who has completed three years of residency training in Ophthalmology, followed by a further two years of fellowship training in Ophthalmic Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery (Oculoplastics).
This extensive training and highly specialized skill set helps the surgeon optimize the functional and aesthetic outcomes for the patients. An oculoplastic surgeon has an intimate understanding of the delicate anatomy of the eyelids and the complexities of eyelid surgery. This surgeon also understands the relationship of the eyelid anatomy with the ocular function and facial expression. With this in-depth knowledge and expertise, the surgeon is in the right position to perform safe and effective surgeries around the eyes.
