Growing up the daughter of a surgeon/ER doctor and a general practitioner, Mayli Davis was naturally drawn to medicine. “I was around it all my life,” she said. “My sister and I even went along to med school with my mom a few times. As kids we helped around her family practice and, as soon as we were old enough, worked as receptionists at her practice and my stepdad’s.”
Once in medical school, Mayli was drawn to two areas, ophthalmology and surgery. “My parents introduced me to a lot of doctors when I was growing up, and it always seemed like the ophthalmologists were the happiest,” she said. “Becoming an eyelid specialist combined the two areas I enjoy most—eyecare and plastic surgery.”
Over the past 24 years, Dr. Davis has built up a thriving practice offering treatment to adults and children for numerous eye, eyelid, and skin issues ranging from cosmetic concerns to reconstruction for skin cancer or other trauma. “Our eyes are often the first thing people notice about us,” she said. “As we age, our eyelids can begin to sag causing not just cosmetic issues, but interfering with our sight or leading to eye strain.” Dr. Davis offers blepharoplasty, a procedure to improve the appearance and function of the eyelid.
In addition to treating medical conditions of the eye, eyelid, and eyebrow, Dr. Davis offers a full menu of cosmetic services including Botox, Juvéderm, microdermabrasion, chemical peels, microblading, dermal fillers, and more. “When having cosmetic procedures performed around your eyes, it’s important to have someone on hand with a complete understanding of eye health and vision,” she said. “Our cosmetic skin and eyelid procedures can take years off your appearance.”
Originally from Kansas City, Dr. Davis did her undergraduate and medical training at the University of Kansas, completed an internship at Good Samaritan Medical Center in Phoenix, a three-year ophthalmology residency at the Mayo Clinic, and an ophthalmic plastic and orbital surgery fellowship at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center. She has served as president of the Tarrant County Ophthalmogical Society and chairman of the Ophthalmology Division at Plaza Medical Center in Fort Worth. She’s currently a clinical professor at the University of Texas, Southwestern Medical Center.
Dr. Davis is a recent empty nester with a son and daughter in college. She spent many happy years volunteering with their Girl Scout and Boy Scout troops and still serves on the executive board of her local Boy Scout council. She works with young women at her church and enjoys running and watching movies. A member of the Colleyville Lions Club, she strives for excellence in everything she does. “I’m always looking for ways to improve myself—personally and professionally,” she said. “I welcome feedback from my patients, so I know how I can better serve them.”
