Christopher M. DeBacker, MD, FACS

Diplomate, American Board of Ophthalmology & American Board of Cosmetic Surgery

Dr. DeBacker is an expert in the field of oculo-facial plastic surgery, and has a special interest in cosmetic (aesthetic) eyelid surgery. He has performed thousands of rejuvenation surgeries (“blepharoplasty”) over his 15 years in practice, and has strived to create a natural, refreshed look that avoids the “over-operated” appearance that often appears in the popular media and tabloids, and which can often dissuade patients from pursuing eyelid surgery. With a crucial background in ophthalmology Dr. DeBacker is well aware of the need to preserve eyelid function and ocular health, and always takes the patient’s ocular history into account when devising a surgical plan. Medical professionals, including nurses, doctors and hospital/ health care administrators come to Dr. DeBacker based on his expertise and commitment to his sub-speciality.
