10 reasons for the surgery with Dr. Nieto
Dr. Nieto has specific training in this subspecialty, having completed a fellowship program from the American Society of Ophthalmic Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery (ASOPRS), which is very difficult for foreign doctors to access; in fact, very few European ophthalmologists have been able to do so. Additionally, Dr. Nieto has supplemented his training with European experts in the specialty. Sub-specialization is the only means of achieving excellence in any branch of medicine. The development of oculoplastic surgery as a distinct subspecialty has allowed for great improvement in the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the periocular area, as well as the perfection of blepharoplasty techniques enabling less invasiveness and greater safety. Nobody knows the eyelid anatomy better than a specialist in the subject.
Thanks to Dr. Nieto’s training as an ophthalmologist, your ocular health is in good hands. We believe that an ophthalmologist is the best specialist to perform surgeries around the eyes. Dr. Nieto received his medical training as an ophthalmologist at Hospital Vall d’Hebrón, the largest university hospital in Catalonia. This hospital also has a long ophthalmological tradition and has produced excellent, world-renowned ophthalmologists.
Dr. Nieto is exclusively dedicated to oculoplastic surgery. He combines his work in reconstructive surgery in public medicine with his private reconstructive and cosmetic practice. His exclusive dedication allows him to treat a large volume of patients and to constantly search for improvement for the specialty.
We receive a large number of patients who want a blepharoplasty, which has allowed us to perfect not only the surgical techniques in question, but also the care we provide to make this procedure easier and more comfortable for the patient.
If you are looking for an oculoplastic surgeon, you should choose one who can certify his training. Dr. Nieto is the first Spanish ophthalmologist to complete a sub-specialization program with the American Society of Ophthalmic Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery (ASOPRS). Additionally, he is a member of the European and American Societies of Ophthalmic Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery (ESOPRS and ASOPRS, respectively). This membership is reserved for oculoplastic surgeons with experience and great dedication to the specialty. Dr. Nieto is also certified by the International Council of Ophthalmology and the Educational Commission for Foreign Medical Graduates in the United States. He is likewise a member of the Spanish Society of Ophthalmology and the Instituto Barraquer. Choosing a well-trained and certified surgeon does not guarantee a perfect result, but it does identify those doctors who have met strict training requirements.
The cosmetic surgery patient is a healthy person, which is why the emergence of complications that can affect ocular health is especially traumatic in these patients. The best way to avoid complications during a blepharoplasty is to prevent them, and this is done thanks to careful planning and attention to small details. Dr. Nieto will seek the best solution for your case without risking your ocular health. If you are not a good candidate for blepharoplasty, Dr. Nieto will recommend that you not have the surgery.
Dr. Nieto is committed to research and innovation in the treatment of patients in his specialty, both in the cosmetic and reconstructive areas. The result of this commitment is demonstrated in his publications and presentations at courses and congresses.
An operation performed by Dr. Nieto is no more expensive than in other centers. In fact, it may be less expensive than in many others. We also have payment plans available through Findirect so that you can pay for your procedure in comfortable installments.
If you decide to have your surgery with us, you will always be able to directly contact Dr. Nieto with any questions or problems. Dr. Nieto believes that performing a blepharoplasty implies accepting a degree of responsibility that is not limited to the surgical procedure itself, which is why he will always be the person to monitor your progress after the procedure.
