What is Oculofacial Plastic Surgery?

Oculofacial Plastic Surgery is a subspecialty of Facial Plastic Surgery that focuses on cosmetic procedures of the eyelids and face.

Also referred to as Cosmetic Oculoplastic Surgeon, this delicate and precise surgical field requires extensive subspecialty training and years of study well beyond medical school. One aspect of this field is that it allows the surgeon special training and comfort with working in and around two of the most delicate and vital structures of the human body — the eyes! For procedures on the face and especially around the eyes many patients have understandable trepidation that only an experienced and precise surgeon work on their face — and Dr. Chandler has spent 15 years in school to become such an expert.

Procedures that Dr. Chandler specializes in include lower eyelid bag surgery, Blepharoplasty, Ptosis, Upper Eye Lifts, Face Mole Removal, Botox,  Fillers, Juvederm, Restylane, and Voluma. Dr. Chandler believes that it is crucial for any patient choosing one of these procedures that he/she select a board-certified MD with facial surgery expertise. Many patients that have conditions that were turned away by general plastic surgeons, ENT (ear, nose and throat specialists), dermatology or family medical doctors are referred to Dr. Chandler because of his particular expertise.

He does not perform any body plastic surgery as this would detract from his focus and specialization. Dr. Chandler is honored to have had all of his education and training in the field of Oculofacial Plastic Surgery at Top 10 surgical training programs within the best hospitals in the country (Duke University School of Medicine, Johns Hopkins Hospital, Harvard University / Massachusetts General Hospital, University of Pennsylvania). Because of his top ranked training and extensive experience, patients from around the country travel to Dr. Damon Chandler for world class care.
