Your Cosmetic Surgery Questions Answered

Q: I have a pre-op appointment on May 12th for Blepharoplasty. I'm a little scared about doing this. I don't want to regret it if things don't turn out good. I'm also afraid of the dry eye problem that can occur. My eye doctor says that I don't have extreme dry eyes. but I feel they are dry at times. Will they become extremely dry after surgery, for the rest of my life?

A: Every patient I see in my practice as part of their initial consultation and evaluation is tested for dry eyes. If your plastic surgeon does not routinely do this, it is because they are not familiar with these tests. That’s why it is important to make sure the surgeon operating on your eyes is an oculoplastic surgeon.


The History and Development of Reconstructive Surgery

I just wanted to share this amazing news with everyone. Surgeons' Hall Museum in Edinburgh UK is having an exhibit on the history and development of reconstructive surgery from Aug 5 2010 to April 2011. They have chosen Surgical Friends Foundation as one of the reconstructive surgery foundations to exhibit. Our Video on Elena and Andressa will be featured continuously for 8 months. It is a privilege and honor to be presented in this prestigious exhibit.

To many more beautiful possibilities in the future.

Peace & Love

What our Patient's are Saying

Dr. Parsa:
I want to say to you that not only are you a very skillful, gifted doctor in the work you perform, but you also are blessed with something extra which puts you on a higher plane than other surgeons. I believe this extra special quality which you possess is your intuitiveness and listening abilities. I mean you give wholeheartedly to each and every one of your patients to truly hear their personal concerns when sitting in your presence. I know with me, you often had to hear me babble about nonsense. Yet, you still cared. This quality truly enables you to connect with your patient’s real needs, giving a positive end result. I want to tell you that life is definitely a gift. So, I say thank you Dr. Parsa for the gift you have given me. I sincerely express my appreciation and gratitude for your professional work, care, and passion.
Thank you so much.
