Dr. Alghoul's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Alghoul "Dr. Alghoul is recognized for his extensive study of facial anatomy and expertise in cosmetic surgery of the eyelid and face. His study in oculoplastic surgery sets him apart and allows him to offer specialized techniques for eyelid procedures. His approach focuses on restoring the natural and youthful look that patient's desire. He combines his knowledge and training in microsurgery with his cosmetic background to perform complex facial aesthetic reconstruction after cancer resection or trauma. Dr. Alghoul's first fellowship lead to his special interest in breast reconstruction and a commitment to natural body restoration of each individual diagnosed with breast cancer. He is a firm believer that plastic surgery is not a cookie-cutter field of medicine, and each patient is unique. As such, he is particular in tailoring treatment to each patient individually in order to make the patient's goals a top priority. Dr. Alghoul is board certified in plastic surgery. He currently serves as an Assistant Professor of Surgery at the Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine, where he teaches students and surgical residents. He primarily works at Northwestern Memorial Hospital and Prentice Women's Hospital, but also performs surgery at Lurie's Children's Hospital and 900 North Surgery Center. He has lectured on facial and eyelid anatomy and has co-authored several peer-reviewed articles in leading plastic surgery journals."
