How to Choose a Reconstructive Plastic Surgeon

Facial Plastic Surgery in Philadelphia and Maryland

If you are looking for a plastic surgeon to perform reconstructive eyelid surgery or another type of facial reconstruction, be sure you carefully examine the credentials and experience of the surgeon you are considering. Your face and eyes are essential parts of your identity that shouldn’t be trusted to anyone less than a board-certified plastic surgeon who focuses exclusively on surgery of the face and eyelids.

Background and Certification

In order to become board-certified, plastic surgeons must go through several years of intensive study and training. Board certification indicates that a surgeon has the intelligence, training, study, and experience to perform plastic surgery at the highest level. A board-certified plastic surgeon is also committed to maintaining:
  • Continuing education
  • Clinical excellence
  • Continual re-certification in their specialty
Dr. John Lee is a board-certified ophthalmologist, a member surgeon of the American Society of Ophthalmic Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery (ASOPRS), and a fellowship-trained oculoplastic surgeon from one of the most renowned programs in the nation. He has extensive hands-on experience with facial plastic surgery, particularly the area around the eyes. These delicate areas require immense precision, care, and skill to produce the best and most natural-looking results.

Dedicated to Patients as Individuals

Every face is unique, which is why it’s so important to approach facial surgery with an understanding of how your individual features combine to create the greatest amount of balance in your facial appearance. The aim is always to make you look more like yourself – not like anyone else. The approach that works best for one patient may not work for the next, which is why Dr. Lee is dedicated to listening to and understanding the goals of each patient. Dr. Lee performs over a thousand eyelid and brow surgeries each year.
