An oculoplastic surgeon specialises in plastic and reconstructive surgery of the periorbital and facial tissues including the eyelids, eyebrows, forehead, cheeks, orbit (bony cavity around the eye), and lacrimal (tear) system. Dr. Shubhra Goel has received her medical training from some of world's leading universities and institutions - GMC Mumbai, KEM Hospitals Mumbai, Rotary Eye Institute Navsari, Sankara Nethralaya Chennai and University of Wisconsin, Madison.

It is true that nowadays many other specialities (and untrained providers) are performing cosmetic surgeries. Each specialty has reconstructive or functional and cosmetic or aesthetic sub divisions. The difference however lies in the specific part of the body for which they are trained for. For example, Plastic Surgeons or the Body Plastic Surgeons mainly deal with the body reshaping and contouring. Dermatologists are into the skin care and non- surgical skin rejuvenation. Ophthalmic cosmetic surgeons or Oculo-facial surgeons like Dr. Shubhra Goel specifically deal with eyelids and structures around the eyes. Their training allows them to offer an integrated approach that combines the microsurgical precision of ophthalmology with the concepts of aesthetic facial surgery.
