Eyes are a delicate part of the body, and any cosmetic surgery procedure related to the eyelids should only be performed by a trained and experienced surgeon.
Oculoplastics deals with cosmetic plastic surgery in the area around the eyes. Patients should carefully choose a surgeon with expertise in oculoplastics to receive procedures such as lower or upper eyelid surgery.
Dr. Susie Rhee, who works with board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Thomas Fiala, provides eyelid surgery cosmetic procedures in a state of the art treatment environment. Dr. Rhee provides blepharoplasty to patients in Orlando, Altamonte Springs, FL, and surrounding communities.
Dr. Susie Rhee holds the unique distinction of being the first female plastic surgeon based full-time in Seminole County, Florida. Dr. Rhee is a strong advocate of patient safety, and strives to achieve the patient’s cosmetic goals in a conservative yet aesthetically desirable manner. As a result, she enjoys high patient satisfaction levels in sensitive procedures such as eyelid lift and brow lift.
A thoroughly trained plastic surgeon, Dr. Rhee completed her plastic surgery residency at the Medical College of Georgia, followed by a prestigious aesthetic surgery fellowship. In addition to cosmetic surgery, she is also fully trained in general surgery. She was honored with the “Kenna S. Given, M.D., Plastic Surgery Clinical Award” at the Medical College of Georgia while she was an administrative Chief Resident. She has also presented several research papers at regional and national meetings.
Personalized and Compassionate Care
Dr. Rhee received deep values of compassion and personalized patient care quite early when her own father lost his battle with leukemia. She carefully listens to the patient’s innate cosmetic requirements and performs an objection examination of their eye anatomy. Based on this evaluation, she will create a customized eyelid surgery plan for them.
Dr. Rhee will not adopt an off the rack or cookie cutter approach to eyelid surgery. She encourages her patients to ask questions and addresses all their concerns at every step. She fosters a relationship of trust and open communication with every patient, and gains their cooperation and compliance for their own sake.
Combining Art and Science
Dr. Rhee believes that best outcomes in a cosmetic procedure such as eyelid surgery can be achieved when the surgeon maintains a careful balance between the principles of science and art. This approach allows the surgeon to achieve results that are not only aesthetically superior, but also healthy, sustainable and natural looking.
In addition to her plastic surgery skills, Dr. Rhee is also an artist with considerable talents in both medical illustration and music. Prior to medical school, she received a scholarship to the Royal College of Music in London for classical violin performance. Her medical illustrations have been used by other surgeons when explaining new procedures.
Her training in classical violin enabled her to cultivate precise hand-eye coordination, and her fine arts background allowed her to have an intimate understanding of the eye and facial anatomy. Experienced plastic surgeon Dr. Rhee receives patients from Orlando, Altamonte Springs, FL, and nearby areas for eyelid lift and other procedures.
