Dr. Burroughs completed a highly competitive American Society of Ophthalmic Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery (ASOPRS) two-year fellowship.  Membership in ASOPRS is restricted to ophthalmologists who have been board certified by the American Board of Ophthalmology and who have also passed rigorous oral and written examinations in this highly specialized field.

Ophthalmic plastic and reconstructive surgeons start as an ophthalmologist (medical doctor and eye surgeon) who then complete additional training in plastic surgery as it relates to the eyes,  surrounding structures, and face.  The word plastic is derived from a Greek word that means to mold or to give form. Plastic surgery is surgery that molds or reconstructs parts of the human body. Ophthalmic plastic surgery is plastic surgery that is limited to the structures surrounding the eye. Since such surgery can affect one’s ability to see, ophthalmic plastic surgeons are the most qualified to perform this delicate surgery and also provide any care that the eye itself may need during healing or prior to surgery.

Dr. Burroughs’ oculo-facial plastic surgery practice primarily covers Colorado Springs and the Southern Colorado region (Pueblo, Canon City), but he receives patients from surrounding states and farther.  His practice covers the gamut of medical and surgical problems of the eyes, eyelids, orbital bones, and surrounding facial areas.  Besides cosmetic eyelid and facial surgery, Dr. Burroughs’ expertise includes: dry eyes; tearing disorders; droopy and other eyelid malpositions; tumors; cancers of the eye, eyelids, orbits, and facial skin; traumatic injury and deformity repairs of the eyelids, orbital bones, and facial skin.


Dr. Burroughs is a highly sought after cosmetic eyelid surgeon, and he also provides non-surgical eyelid and facial rejuvenation (e.g., botulinum toxin-“botox”, fillers, peels).  A considerable portion of his practice is managing suboptimal results and complications from surgery performed by other specialists and subspecialists.  Given his training, accrued expertise, and gentle bed-side manner he often sees other doctors as patients as well as receiving doctor referrals of their own family and staff members, performs many second opinion consults, and often is asked to manage the most challenging cases.

No scars!

Sep 03, 2014 by John Cenusa

I have had warts removed from my upper, lower, and general eye area from both of my eyes twice by Dr. John Burroughs. His surgical skills were so fine that no scars were visible, and nothing has returned in 2 years. He was very patient with me, informed me what the tags were, what the process was about, removed the most delicate one on the very rim of my eyelids with care, and I healed very quickly! No one noticed a thing! I would go back to Dr. Burroughs without hesitation!

Skilled... HIGHLY Recommend

I had upper and lower eyes done by Dr. Burroughs. I can\'t say enough about
him as he was very nice, patient, and answered all my questions. I never
felt rushed in talking with him and he seemed very professional and skilled.
I am very pleased with my results and would highly recommend Dr. Burroughs.
