Dr. Debraj Shome has won many citations and honors such as “Best Plastic Surgeon Mumbai”, “Top 10 Cosmetic Surgeon India”, “Best Oculoplastic Surgeon India”, “Marquis Who’s Who”, “Celebrity Plastic Surgeon in World”, “Marquis Who’s Who Asia Pacific” etc. Oculo-Facial Plastic Surgery is a burgeoning super-specialty in India, but is quite in demand in the USA currently. Currently majority of the facial surgeries in the US are performed by this particular group of plastic surgeons, who are super-specialized in surgeries of the lacrimal, orbital, facial & peri-ocular tissues. As these surgeons have been trained specifically in plastic surgery of the tissues of the face & practice exclusively in the face, end results in all facial surgeries tend to be better than general plastic surgeons who operate all over the body.
