Ivan Vrcek, M.D.
Dr. Ivan Vrcek was born in Jackson, Mississippi to parents from Ireland and Croatia. He was raised in Oklahoma and Texas. It was in high school at Strake Jesuit where Dr. Vrcek first developed his passion for medical science and his dedication to being a man for others. Dr. Vrcek attended The College of the Holy Cross in Massachusetts where he delivered an honors thesis in comparative anatomy and graduated with honors. He then attended medical school at UT Southwestern Medical Center in Dallas, Texas where he was president of his class. Dr. Vrcek then completed his Ophthalmology Residency (Eye Disease and Eye Surgery) at Parkland Hospital where he published numerous scientific articles in the field of ophthalmic plastic surgery and honed his interest in the field. Dr. Vrcek was the first applicant from UT Southwestern in over a decade to be accepted into a prestigious American Society of Ophthalmic Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery (ASOPRS) fellowship. During fellowship, Dr. Vrcek performed over 2,000 ophthalmic plastic, reconstructive, orbit, lacrimal, trauma and cosmetic facial surgery procedures. Dr. Vrcek also trained numerous residents, wrote more than 20 peer reviewed publications and book chapters, and distinguished himself by being awarded two American Academy of Cosmetic Surgery Research Grants. Dr. Vrcek also completed a fellowship in Facial Cosmetic Surgery accredited by the American Academy of Cosmetic Surgery during which time he was trained in complex full facial cosmetic and reconstructive surgery.
While Dr. Vrcek has training and experience in full facial cosmetic and reconstructive surgery, he has chosen to focus his practice on the area around the eyes. The periocular region is arguably the most important part of the face and deserves a specialist solely devoted to this complex and critical area. Dr. Vrcek offers a wide range of reconstructive and cosmetic surgery in the eye region and operates at several facilities in the Dallas area.
“Dr Vrcek recently performed a procedure to lift my eye lid. I was referred to him by my eye specialist. What a wonderful experience it has been. Dr Vrcek and his team met with me in early November to assess my situation. They filed all of the paperwork with my insurance and the procedure was successfully done at Baylor Surgicare in Dallas. I am thrilled with the results! I appreciate his attention to detail and availability to answer all of my questions and concerns. It is so refreshing to to be treated with such care and concern when it comes to procedures like this. I highly recommend Dr Vrcek.”
“I found myself with a few weeks between jobs and decided to go ahead with a much needed eyelid surgery. Dr. Vrcek and his team were so patient with me answering emails at all hours of the day, and scheduled me just two weeks after my initial consultation. The surgery experience itself was much less stressful than I had imagined, everyone were so sweet and caring.I was surprised that the actual surgery was pain free and recovery just a week. After 9 days I was at a party with my husbands company and I started my new job after only 3 weeks and no one can tell I even had it done. I would definitely do it again with Dr. Vrcek and his team they really are the best.”
“I was referred to Dr. Vrcek and he has been a helpful hand throughout my journey. From assisting in diagnosing my condition, to my orbital biopsy, to referring me to a rheumatologist. After the biopsy, he called several times during my recovery to ensure that I was healing well. Even afterwards, he checked to see if I was being taken care of by my rheumatologist. When I tell people that I have had an orbital surgery, they are amazed at how well the scar is hidden. I’ve been told several times “I can’t even tell!.” He was amazing. I highly recommend Dr. Vrcek.”
“I have had overwhelmingly positive experiences with Dr. Vrcek and his practice!! He performed surgery on my eye and I was completely back to normal in days – with absolutely no scar!! Both he and his office were extremely attentive and called to check in several times. His staff is accommodating and concerned about convenience – they are also wonderful about getting you in if you need to be seen. Dr. Vrcek is also handling my “facial maintenance” :), with wonderful results. His background and experience are also seriously impressive. I can’t say enough positive things!!”
“It was a blessing when I got referred to Dr. Vrcek. I had to have a plastic surgery for my eyelids and I am very pleased with the results. I loved the way he communicate with patient and the care he shown before and after the surgery, I never had a doctor that call you in person to check on you. Thank you so much Dr. Vrcek, May God bless you!”
