Philadelphia Oculofacial Plastic Surgeon, Dr. Kenneth Morgenstern

Elite Training. Exceptional Results.

Dr. Morgenstern is certified by the American College of Surgeons (FACS), American Academy of Facial Plastic Reconstructive Surgery (AAFPRS), American Academy of Cosmetic Surgery (AACS), and the American Society of Ophthalmic Plastics and Reconstructive Surgery (ASOPRS). He is also Board Certified by the American Board of Ophthalmology.

This highly specialized training and broad experience uniquely qualify Dr. Morgenstern as a specialist in cosmetic and reconstructive surgeries of the eyes, head, face, and neck. To reach this elite level and maintain these associations, Dr. Morgenstern has to uphold a number of stringent requirements, including meeting educational and training qualifications and passing written and oral exams. Board-certified surgeons go the extra mile to demonstrate their expertise, knowledge, and skill in their field of specialty.

Dr. Morgenstern is one of the few surgeons in the country who is trained in oculofacial plastic surgery, facial cosmetic surgery, general/trauma surgery, and ophthalmology. He also performs functional and reconstructive surgeries for tumors, traumatic injuries, tear-duct blockages, and age-related changes to the orbits, eyelids, and face. He is expertly trained in the art of cosmetic surgery and performs procedures such as face and neck lifting, brow lifting, upper and lower eyelid blepharoplasty, and facial implants.

As a highly trained physician, Dr. Morgenstern knows that surgery is not the answer to every problem. Some issues should be addressed more conservatively using non-invasive or minimally invasive techniques. Dr. Morgenstern uses modalities such as Profound or the Genius, Botox, fillers, chemical peels, and multiple types of laser therapies to treat a myriad of conditions. He performs these procedures with the same steady hand and attention to detail as he does surgeries. His elite training and gifted touch create a natural, youthful appearance his patients love.
