"I have been considering cosmetic eye surgery to kick off the new year. What should I consider?”

 
 
by Dr. John W. Collins, Lexington Clinic Ophthalmologist
 
 
Any time a patient has a procedure, no matter how minor, there are certain risks associated with it - cosmetic eye surgery is no different.  For this reason, it is important, when considering ophthalmic plastic surgery, to find a physician who not only has adequate credentials, but also has the expertise and precision of a trained eye surgeon.

I am fortunate to have completed fellowship training in ophthalmic plastic surgery while serving as an instructor of ophthalmology, giving me advanced skills and knowledge to perform cosmetic eye procedures. I perform each procedure and injection personally, giving patients the assurance that they are receiving the highest quality care when it comes to their cosmetic eye and facial procedures.  

I am pleased to offer a wide range of in-office cosmetic procedures, including:
• Cosmetic eyelid surgery
• Brow lift
• Eyelid tucks
• Cosmetic laser surgery
• Cosmetic and facial injections (including Botox®, Xeomin® and Juvèderm®)

If considering cosmetic eye surgery to start your new year, call (859) 258-5310 to schedule a consultation today to discuss your options and determine which options are best for you.
