- Plastic Surgery
A plastic surgery specialist is a physician with extensive training in the execution of plastic surgery procedures.
Plastic surgery is the use of surgical procedures to rebuild or reshape injured or misshapen body parts. Congenital defects, such as a cleft lip or palate, can be corrected by a plastic surgery specialist. Injuries sustained during auto accidents also may require the services of a plastic surgery specialist. These procedures fall under the category of reconstructive plastic surgery.
The other category of plastic surgery is cosmetic plastic surgery. Plastic surgery specialists often perform procedures like breast augmentation, face lifts, tummy tucks, liposuction, and lip injection as elective surgeries for patients who wish to make aesthetic improvements.
An ophthalmologist has the training to do much more than just prescribe glasses. They are physicians specially trained to diagnose and treat disorders of the eyes and vision. These doctors are experts on the complicated anatomy of the eye and are trained to treat eye diseases through both medical and surgical methods.
Some common conditions that ophthalmologists treat are cataracts, glaucoma, strabismus, diabetic retinopathy, macular degeneration and amblyopia. In addition, ophthalmologists can provide prescriptions for eye glasses and contact lenses and perform LASIK surgery and other corrective surgeries for refractive errors like myopia (near-sightedness), hyperopia (far-sightedness), astigmatism and presbyopia.

Dr. Perman is highly skilled and did a wonderful job on the removal of the growth on my lower eye-lid. He was calm and assuring at my evaluation and made small talk which made me feel more comfortable. I had 100% confidence in his abilities. His surgical coordinator Susan is FABULOUS. The surgery date was tough for me to set up b/c Dr. Perman has a very limited VA schedule and I had to have it in VA so my people could support me. Susan was awesome from the very beginning. My only critique was that Dr. Perman seemed a little short and condescending with me at the follow up. Anyone can have days like that so I'm fine about it now but at the time I would have enjoyed a little more compassion. Removing the stitches HURT. Surgeons aren't always the warmest though and I have learned this over many surgeries. Overall I would highly recommend Dr. Perman. Great skill.
Was told that I would receive pricesin the mail within one week for the procedures discussed during my office visit. Called at 1 month, 2 month, and 3 month intervals - office chose not to send the prices. Indicates the physician does not need the business and/or has totally incompetent and/overwhelmed staff. Too bad, physician came highly recomended and I was ready to go!
I was looking for Dr Perman's address to recommend him to someone and just had to make a comment when I saw this rating.I am 50 and had basal cell removed from my lower lid by via MOHs surgery. That left me with half a lower lid and only a partial tear duct. Dr Perman repaired this area and rebuilt my tear duct using upper eyelid skin. It is virtually unnoticeable (except that I lost half my lashes during MOHs)- I have to point out the scar to my dermatologists. I have NO leaking or dry eye which shows how skilled he is. He also repaired a crappy upper bleph that I had a few years before.I would go back to him without hesitation.
I picked Dr. Kevin Perman to do my Botox because he is an ophthalmologist and has many years of experience. The first two times I went, he gave me fair prices for Botox and I was satisfied with the results. When I went back today, he charged me approx. $100 more than the going rate for one area of Botox should be. I understand that you pay a little more for skill, but this was too much. He also doesn't have any set, readily available pricing guide for Botox, which I find annoying. Why is it such a secret? His demeanor was slightly condescending, but he was not rude. Anyway, he may be a very good doctor and surgeon, but I would not go back to him for Botox due to his unfairly high prices.
