An Expert Oculoplastic Surgeon
A medical practitioner is qualified to pursue oculoplastic surgery training only after finishing medical school and undertaking an internship with a residency in eye surgery or ophthalmology. Having undergone this extensive training, Dr. Khan thoroughly understands the anatomy of the eye, eyelids, and facial sites surrounding the eye.
A primary area of ophthalmology training is undertaking surgery on the eye itself. This is a complex procedure which requires a very delicate touch. Certain sutures used in eye surgery are so light and fine that they float in the air when the surgeon attempts to tie them.
After ophthalmology training, the next step if fellowship training. The delicate touch expertise that the surgeon has achieved during ophthalmology training now translates into a targeted and precise touch when undertaking eyelid and facial plastic surgery.
