Dr. Chad Zatezalo relocated to the Washington area in 2012 from the renowned Bascom Palmer Eye Institute in Miami Florida. After several fruitful years of practice at Washington Eye Physicians and Surgeons, he now heads a combined ophthalmology and oculofacial plastics center in North Bethesda and consults for several organizations including the Center for Facial Nerve Recovery. Dr. Zatezalo is a fellow of the American Society of Ophthalmic Plastics and Reconstructive Surgery and the American Academy of Ophthalmology. He specializes in ophthalmic plastics, reconstructive and cosmetic surgery of the eyelids, orbit, lacrimal system, upperface and midface, and surrounding tissue. His highly specialized training in both oculoplastics and ophthalmology allows him to understand the importance of the functional aspect of the eyelids while performing cosmetic and reconstructive surgery. As a well rounded oculoplastic surgeon, his scope of practice ranges from facial cosmetic surgery including facial rejuvenation, revisional surgeries, browplasty (forehead lift), blepharoplasty (lid lift), to eyelid cancers and reconstructions, tear drainage disorders, lid abnormalities, and orbital oncology and inflammatory disorders. Dr. Zatezalo also specializes in nonsurgical facial rejuvenation including laser resurfacing, neurotoxins (e.g. Botox, Dysport), dermal fillers (e.g. JuvéDerm, Restalyne), and surgical scars revisions. He has been an invited lecturer nationally and has published numerous articles and book chapters during his career. His research interests include methods to minimize surgical incision lines, intra-operative pain control, the use of high resolution ultrasound for lacrimal disorders, and the treatment of congenital anophthalmos. Dr. Zatezalo is committed to customizing results to achieve a natural youthful appearance for each patient.
