Home > About > Dr. Stout Bio


Dr. Stout specializes in cosmetic laser eyelid procedures, with an expertise on Asian eyes, which account for one-third of the over 15,000 eyelid rejuvenations and enhancements (blepharoplasties) he has performed. He stands apart from other cosmetic surgeons in that he considers cosmetic procedures an art form and believes in the credo that it should enhance as opposed to alter the appearance of the patient.


“It is my philosophy that cosmetic procedures should be approached as restorative artwork which enhance, as oppose to alter, the natural beauty of the patient. My goal is to restore people’s eyes to their former youthful appearance without causing them to appear unnatural or overdone.

Many patients come into my office nervous, both about the procedure itself and the eventual outcome. As a doctor, I strive to reassure patients with my experience and ability and help them understand my natural approach toward their procedure. It is important for me to earn my patient’s trust so that they can be comfortable with me during the entire procedure.”
