When you require surgery in or around your delicate eye area, you want only the best surgeon that you can find. As such, you owe it to yourself to have your procedure performed by our oculoplastic and reconstructive surgeon in Dallas rather than a generic cosmetic surgeon.
Your eyes are vital to your sense of vision and to your sense of self. They are also one of the first features that many people will notice about you when meeting you for the first time. One mistake could cost you your beauty in this fragile area or could even cost you your sight.
Dr. Syed Ahmad, who practices in the Dallas area, has dedicated his professional life to learning more about the physical makeup of the eyes and their surrounding structures. He is one of the few oculoplastic surgeons in the United States, a specialty that is sadly lacking in this country. As part of his education and training, he has spent years learning plastic surgery and reconstructive techniques to improve the eyelids, tear ducts and orbital areas. He provides surgeries both for those who want to improve the look of their eyes, as well as for those who have faced a disease or a surgery that has left their eyes in need of reconstructive surgery.
If you need eyelid or orbital surgery, you may be wondering why it is so important that you see Dr. Ahmad over a cosmetic surgeon. A quick search online will show you that there are plenty of cosmetic surgeons throughout the Dallas area who perform eyelid surgeries. However, you should know that there are several major differences between a cosmetic surgeon and an oculoplastic and reconstructive surgeon like Dr. Ahmad.
There are quite literally thousands of cosmetic surgeons across the United States. These surgeons perform everything from non-invasive aesthetic treatments to breast augmentations and tummy tucks. While many of them are highly-qualified surgeons with plenty of experience, they do not have the same qualifications that Dr. Ahmad has.
Oculoplastic surgery is a further sub-category within the specialized plastic surgery field. To become this type of surgeon, one must go through a lot of training and many certifications. These surgeons will know what to do should a complication arise during surgery and will have increased competence with all treatments that are offered.
Indeed, Dr. Ahmad mirrors this high level of excellence expected of an oculoplastic and reconstructive surgeon. He is a diplomate of the American Board of Ophthalmology and holds fellowships at the New York Eye and Ear Infirmary and MD Anderson Cancer Center. He is affiliated with the American Academy of Ophthalmology, the American Academy of Cosmetic Surgery, the Dallas Academy of Ophthalmology and the Texas Medical Association.
As you can see, Dr. Syed Ahmad is the clear choice when it comes to plastic surgery or reconstructive surgery around the eyes. With plenty of experience and knowledge in this field, he can be trusted with even the most intricate eye surgeries, placing him steps above a general cosmetic surgeon in Dallas.
