MARIE SOMOGYI, MD, FACS
OCULOFACIAL PLASTIC SURGEON
Dr. Marie Somogyi’s dream to pursue medicine began at a very young age. Her scientific interest coupled with her naturally artistic eye steered her to the field of oculofacial plastic surgery, which perfectly matched these interests. She is committed to providing individualized, patient centered care while utilizing advanced surgical techniques in order to deliver the highest level of care for her patients.
After completing a competitive two year fellowship in ophthalmic plastic, orbit, and reconstructive surgery accredited by the American Society of Ophthalmic Plastic Reconstructive Surgery (ASOPRS) and a facial cosmetic surgery accredited by the American Academy of Cosmetic Surgery (AACS), Dr. Somogyi became double board certified as an ophthalmic and facial plastic surgeon. She also serves as a faculty member for the Ophthalmology Department at the Dell Medical School at UT Austin. She is actively involved in research, which has been frequently presented at national meetings. Furthermore, she has been recognized by her patients and peers as a Texas Rising Star and a Top Doctor multiple years running.
I strive to treat my patients as members of my own family. I have grown both my practice and family here in central Texas, and my husband and I recently welcomed our second son. Becoming a mom has made me an even more compassionate and empathetic physician for my patients and my patients feel that personal connection.
I look forward to welcoming you as a patient, and ultimately, invite you into my extended family.
Age-related changes, diseases, skin cancer, and trauma may contribute to the need for surgery around the eyes and face. There are many surgical options available to address these, which may include ptosis (droopy eyelid) surgery, ectropion or entropion (eyelid turning out or in), tear duct surgery to address tearing, orbital fracture repair following trauma, orbital decompression for thyroid eye disease, and many more. Reconstructive surgery may be needed at all stages of life, and I love seeing patients of all ages. My goal in these cases is, first and foremost, to restore function, retain vision, and alleviate pain, and secondly, to provide the most natural looking appearance.
Gravitational changes, volume loss, and skin changes are the primary signs of the aging face. The periorbital area (area around the eyes) is especially revealing of these due to the delicate nature of the skin, muscle, and soft tissue in this area. There are both surgical and non-surgical procedures available to address these, including upper and lower blepharoplasty, eyebrow and forehead lift, fat transfer, and more. My goal for my patients is to provide natural rejuvenation that allows you to feel, look, and reflect the best version of you.
Many early facial aging changes, including wrinkles, volume loss, and skin changes, can be addressed with non-surgical methods as well. These may include neuromodulators (ex. Botox®, Dysport®, Xeomin®) to address wrinkles, dermal fillers (ex. Juvéderm®, Restylane®, etc) for areas of volume loss, and skin treatments, such as laser, chemical peel, and skincare products. As always, my treatment goal for my patients is to reverse the effects of time in a natural way that allows you the confidence to put your best face forward.
I recently had upper and lower eyelid surgery with Dr. Somogyi. The entire experience was great from start to finish. Procedure went well and the results were excellent.
Dr. Somogyi is an exemplary physician/surgeon and I recommend her enthusiastically!
