A native New Yorker, Amiya Prasad was surrounded by faces: faces of many cultures, ages and ethnicities. Their movements and expressions, structures and muscles inspired Prasad to pursue his sub-specialty oculofacial (eye and face) surgery. Today he is ranked in the company of only about 500 oculofacial surgeons worldwide.
Amiya Prasad earned his medical degree from Mount Sinai School of Medicine in 1988 and went on to continue his internship in internal medicine at Beth Israel Medical Center. He accepted a pre-residency research fellowship in the highly competitive Mount Sinai School of Medicine, Department of Ophthalmology. He completed his residency in eye surgery at Brookdale University Hospital. There, Prasad mastered the intricate techniques of microscopic surgery.
In 1993, Dr. Prasad began a Fellowship in Oculofacial Plastic Surgery at the University of Texas-Galveston; a Preceptorship in ENT/Facial Plastic Surgery at Baylor College of Medicine, followed from 1994 to 1995. Brookdale University Hospital recognized for outstanding surgical results, had Dr. Prasad develop a highly specialized Oculofacial Plastic Surgery Division. He served as Chief of Surgery at the Oculofacial Plastic Surgery Division, Brookdale University Hospital from 1995 to 1998.
Dr. Prasad wanted to pursue a more personalized approach to aesthetic surgery. In 1998 Prasad Cosmetic Surgery, his private practice, opened on the Upper East Side of Manhattan with a second office in Garden City, Long Island.
Today, Dr. Prasad is widely regarded by his patients and peers as the very best in his field. His finely perfected surgical techniques result in rejuvenated natural appearances that do not alter the unique characteristics that each individual face possesses.
