Do you want to know more about Botox treatments both cosmetic and functional or Injectables and Fillers (Juvederm, etc.)? Are you considering Oculoplastic, Orbital, and Cosmetic surgery?

Here are 3 fundamental questions to consider when selecting your eye surgeon:

Is your Surgeon qualified?

What are your surgeon’s specialty and experience?

Go with the best when getting surgery. You want to make sure the operation does not cause extenuating issues beyond your initial problem.

Choosing a specialist can avoid any long-term negative consequences that often occur when going with a generalist.
