Mark A. Cepela said that at present, most eye plastic surgery is performed by surgeons. In fact, eye plastic surgery should be microsurgery, because the number of facial muscles and nerves is equal to the number of muscles and nerves in the rest parts of the body combined.
In particular, the eye is the most sophisticated organ of the body, eye plastic surgery is a very subtle surgery and not all surgeons can do it.
As the subject leader of He Eye Specialist Hospital
’s plastic surgery specialty, Director Zhang Lirong said that at present, there are few specialized ophthalmologists doing eye surgery in China, and talents in this area are very scarce. She hopes that through this training, they can fill the gaps in domestic technology.
She wishes to improve the domestic eye plastic technology, so that more patients can enjoy professional eye plastic services.
