Cosmetic Surgeon in Rockville-North Bethesda

As a well rounded oculoplastic surgeon, Dr. Zatezalo scope of practice ranges from facial cosmetic surgery to reconstructive and revisional surgery, lacrimal or tearing disorders, orbital and ocular oncology, anophthalmic sockets and inflammatory disorders of the eyelid, eye and orbit.

When considering cosmetic surgery of the eyelids, brow and face, the surgeon must pay special attention to the health of the eye.  If surgery is performed on an eyelid or brow without properly evaluating the health of the eye, severe complications may result.  Dr. Zatezalo will evaluate your face and eyes on your initial visit and optimize your ocular health if needed before scheduling your surgery.

Dr. Zatezalo is also performing revisional surgery at The Zatezalo Group in North Bethesda.  If after having surgery with another surgeon you are unhappy with your results, Dr. Zatezalo has many nonsurgical and surgical methods to improve your condition. A bad result from surgery can often lead to a large degree of stress which can resemble a post-traumatic stress disorder.  Dr. Zatezalo attempts to repair unwanted outcomes without additional surgery and will only recommend surgery if necessary.

He has recently published his first clinical trial conducted over the last seven years on techniques for preforming eyelid surgery.  Dr Zatezalo has been invited nationally and internationally to lecture on various topics, most recently in Monaco and Medellin, Colombia.  He also has published numerous peer reviewed articles and book chapters during his career. His research interests and passions include surgical scar treatment with lights, lasers and injectables, and the treatment of acquired and congenital anophthalmos.

Dr. Zatezalo has been committed to customizing results to achieve a natural youthful appearance for each patient for over 10 years in the field of oculofacial plastics.
