Colorado Springs Plastic Eye Surgery – Ophthalmologist Dr. John Burroughs, Cosmetic and Reconstructive Ophthalmic and Facial Plastic Surgery

Dr. Burroughs is a fellowship trained subspecialist in oculo-facial plastic surgery. His areas of expertise include cosmetic rejuvenation and management of complex issues of the eyelids, orbits, and face. Dr. Burroughs’ experience as an ophthalmic microsurgeon brings delicacy, precision, and safety to the cosmetic and reconstructive surgeries he performs around the eyes and face.

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 and their surrounding structures.  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 best qualified to perform this delicate surgery and also provide any care that the eye itself may need.

Dr. Burroughs’ oculoplastics practice primarily covers Colorado Springs and the Southern Colorado region, but he receives patients from the surrounding states and farther.  His practice covers the gamut of medical and surgical problems of the eyes, eyelids, orbital bones, and surrounding facial areas.  Dr. Burroughs’ oculoplastics 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.  Given his training, accrued expertise, and gentle bed-side manner he is often referred family and staff members from other doctors and medical practices, performs many second opinion consults, and often is asked to manage the most challenging cases.  Hundreds of independently verified reviews of Dr. John Burroughs can be seen at the following link: Dr. John Burroughs reviews.
