Dr. Susan :

Depends on the size and the location. If it is on the eyelid margin (where the lashes are) an ophthalmologist should do it. If it does not involve the lashes a plastic surgeon or dermatologist is fine.

Customer:

an eye surgeon. or an ophthamologist that does eye exams?

Dr. Susan :

ophthalmologist are all eye surgeons. If you can see an oculoplastic surgeon- that is even better!

Dr. Susan :

They are ophthalmologists whom trained for 2 additional years in plastic surgery

Customer:

i did not know that all ophthalmologist are eye surgeons. thank you for the information
