Kira Segal, M.D.
Dr. Segal is a board-certified ophthalmologist with specialty training in oculofacial plastic surgery. Her practice interests include eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty and ptosis), brow lift, thyroid eye disease/correction of bulging eyes, cancers of the eyelids, orbit, and face (including complex Mohs reconstruction), eyelid malposition, tearing disorders, facial nerve palsy, anophthalmic socket, aesthetic surgery, and non-surgical injectables.
Dr. Segal received her undergraduate degree from the University of Pennsylvania where she graduated Summa Cum Laude. She then obtained her MD with dual honors in service to the community and research from Weill Cornell Medical College. She was awarded the Medical Society State of New York Award for medical excellence. She then went on to complete her transitional year internship at the Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center and her ophthalmology residency at New York-Presbyterian Hospital/Weill Cornell Medicine. Dr. Segal completed an additional two years of subspecialty training in surgery of the eyelids, orbit, and lacrimal system at the Kellogg Eye Center at the University of Michigan. This prestigious fellowship is one of few in the county credentialed by the Oculofacial Society (ASOPRS). She was an Assistant Professor at Weill Cornell Medicine with appointments at New York-Presbyterian Hospital and Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center before joining EltraSelf. She currently sits on a leadership committee of ASOPRS and is a member of Women in Ophthalmology.
She has advanced training in complex approaches to the eyelid, orbit and tear drainage system and as a result performs a wide range of aesthetic and reconstructive procedures. Her surgical training includes minimally invasive/scarless approaches to the orbit for correction of bulging eyes as well as endoscopic surgery for tearing and brow ptosis. Dr. Segal strives to make sure her patients feel comfortable and confident each step of the way. She works closely with each individual to ensure that the surgical or medical plan is aligned with her patient’s goal and aesthetic.
