Why Choose Dr. Gonzalez? An Eye for Beauty and a Passion for Precision Dr. Mithra O. Gonzalez was selected by the Flaum Eye Institute because of his expertise in Oculofacial Plastic Surgery. Specialists in this discipline focus exclusively on the eyelids, forehead, brow and face. No other type of cosmetic surgery demands a more meticulous approach because careful attention must be paid to both the aesthetic outcome of a procedure and to restoring or preserving visual function. Accordingly, Dr. Gonzalez is a board certified ophthalmologist who has undergone rigorous training in oculofacial plastic surgery. Dr. Gonzalez attended medical school at the University of Iowa. After completing his residency in ophthalmology at the University of Rochester Medical Center, Dr. Gonzalez traveled to Denver, Colorado where he completed a two-year American Society of Ophthalmic Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery (ASOPRS) fellowship at the University of Colorado. ASOPRS represents the highest standard in facial aesthetic and reconstructive surgery, and only a select few are admitted to ASOPRS programs each year. During his training Dr. Gonzalez performed thousands of procedures including Botox® injections and filler injections, eyelid surgery, facelifts, rhinoplasty, otoplasty, and complex facial reconstructions while caring for the people of Denver, Aspen and Vail. Although no procedure can guarantee perfection, an ASOPRS-trained physician is an assurance that your surgeon is focused on this most important part of your body. We don't perform surgeries like breast augmentation or full-body contouring because we are devoted to the beauty, uniqueness and expressiveness of the face. In what we do millimeters matter and Dr. Gonzalez will take a jeweler's approach to restoring, enhancing and uncovering your best features. It would be our privilege to schedule your consultation and help you discover an artisanal approach to your cosmetic procedure.
