Dr. Goodglick is among a limited number of physicians in the country who is trained in both ophthalmology and cosmetic surgery around the eye. We are proud to have Dr. Goodglick at our practice in Chevy Chase, Maryland, near Virginia and Washington DC. Cosmetic eye surgery, also called blepharoplasty, usually involves the lifting of eyelids and removal of wrinkles or excess skin around the eyes. Eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty) can reduce the aging, tired, or sad look caused by drooping eyelids. Dr. Goodglick also performs reconstructive surgery of the eye socket and orbital fractures of the facial bones, including eye prostheses, tearing problems, lid twitches, and blepharospasm.
Surgery around the eyes always requires the consideration of the eye function and ophthalmologists with dual training like Dr. Goodglick is uniquely qualified to perform such procedures. Common cosmetic and functional problems involving the eyelids and the tissues around the eye can also have underlying neurological or muscle causes and associations, and evaluation necessitates more than just a cosmetic approach. Rather, a patient with such problems often needs to be evaluated from the perspectives of an oculoplastic surgeon, an ophthalmologist, a neurologist, and a specialist experienced in diseases of the orbit (the eye socket, bones, and sinuses).
