Our Experience

Experience Counts When Selecting a Plastic Surgeon


Eyelid and Facial Surgeries We Have Performed To Date (Estimated)

Is experience important? We think so, and you’ll have a hard time finding other physicians who can match the experience of Dr. James Patrinely and Dr. Charles Soparkar. When it comes to your body, would you rather have your procedure performed by someone who does two a month, or by someone who specializes in that procedure and performs 35 a month?

Surgical volume isn’t everything. We place a major emphasis on ensuring that everyone of our patients is treated individually to meet their unique needs. Two eyelids on the same person are often managed differently. The goal is a final result giving the most apparent symmetry possible.

At Plastic Eye Surgery Associates, PLLC, PA, both of our physicians have profound individual experience. In complicated situations, the partners’ combined input is sometimes invaluable. We are pleased to be able to share the breadth of our combined experience.

As one of the leading Blepharoplasty practices in the world, Dr. Patrinely and Dr. Soparkar are internationally recognized leaders in the field of facial plastic surgery. From across the globe, patients seek out their expertise. Over 70% of procedures performed are revisions of other people’s work.

In addition to their extensive hands on surgical experience, the doctors at Plastic Eye Surgery Associates have published hundreds of original articles, given hundreds of lectures around the world, described numerous syndromes and unique conditions, and developed a myriad of now commonly used surgical techniques. Patrinely and Soparkar are truly at the leading edge of their profession.
