Why choose an Oculoplastic Surgeon for your eyelid surgery?

Ophthalmic plastic and reconstructive surgery is a specialized area of ophthalmology that addresses the medical and surgical care of the eyelids, lacrimal (tear) system, orbit (eye socket), and the adjacent face. Over the past 22 years, my practice has evolved to treat mostly cosmetic issues of the eyelids and upper face. However I do also take care of common eyelid conditions such as styes, chalazions, eyelid lumps, bumps and skin cancers.

The training of Oculoplastic Surgeons begins after medical school with an internship and then a Residency in Ophthalmology or eye surgery. This training involves understanding the intimate details of the eye, eyelids and facial region around the eye. A key portion of my Ophthalmology training involved surgery on the eye itself. This delicate surgery requires an exquisitely soft touch. Some of the sutures I used in eye surgery are so fine that they are thinner than a human hair!

After Ophthalmology training I completed fellowship training in oculoplastic surgery. Since Ophthalmology training involves such fine work, the delicate touch I developed there translated into a precise and careful touch when performing eyelid plastic surgery. And now with 22 years of experience in private practice, I provide my patients with the very best care when it comes to blepharoplasty and eyelid surgery in NYC.

I also have extensive experience treating functional issues of the eyelids such as ptosis, or droopy eyes. Often patients who have ptosis, also have excess upper eyelid skin and aging changes of the eyelids. So, with my oculoplastic surgery training, I can expertly address both issues.

Over the years I have made it a priority to continue improving my surgical outcomes. This has required me to look critically at my own work, and always ask myself how it can be done better. I believe with this philosophical approach, my patients receive the absolute best surgical results.
