It is important to select a surgeon who has performed your particular surgery or procedure with years of experience with successful results for the patients. When investigating physicians, make sure you know the amount of years he/she has been in practice and their experience in performing cosmetic and reconstructive operations. Dr. Ahmad has been performing opthalmic surgery and nothing else for over 10 years.
Training and Commitment
Because of the increased interest in cosmetic surgery these days, many physicians who may not have had specific experience are promoting and marketing their business as experts in the industry. Be sure to carefully evaluate the training and commitment of the physicians you are considering. Have they completed special training or fellowships in eyelid and ophthalmic plastic surgery? Is eyelid and facial plastic surgery their main focus? Dr. Ahmad is fellowship trained in Opthalmic Plastic Surgery and has also been a physician trainer in Oculoplastic surgery.
Educated and informed patients recognize from their own experience that a surgeon focused on one area is more likely to be skilled, up to date, and knowledgeable in that area. How much training does the physician have in the specific area you are contemplating surgery for? Dr. Ahmad specializes exclusively on the eyes and face.
In Dr. Ahmad’s office, it is unlikely that any two patients would receive the exact same treatment. Each patient is unique and their needs are as well. Some of the issues we consider are: Should the position of your eyebrows and forehead be modified, and if so, how? (For example, endoscopic browlift, temporal subcutaneous lift, mid-forehead, pre-trichial, or direct browlifts) What is the most advantageous approach to performing your upper blepharoplasty ? (For example, removal of skin only, skin muscle, skin and fat, fat only, and whether and how to reform your eyelid crease). What is the most effective method to smooth out your lower eyelids and cheeks? (For example, removal of fat only, removal of fat and skin, removal of fat with suspension of your muscle or cheek, laser skin treatments).
