What does a cosmetic consultation look like?
This service often requires an interdisciplinary approach, collaborating across several disciplines, which include USC dermatologists, otolaryngologists, general plastic surgeons and even ocular oncologists (in the case of tumor resections). The combined approach is the result of the unique academic environment established by the USC Roski Eye Institute, allowing for an unprecedented level of expertise both clinically and surgically in the management and treatment of a given condition.
