Blepharoplasty is the most common cosmetic procedure Dr. Levin performs. Blepharoplasty restores a youthful and rejuvenated look to the eyes and the face, improves the sensation of “heaviness”, and when severe, improves peripheral vision. It is a minimally invasive surgical procedure that is most commonly performed in the office with local injections of anesthesia.

Upper eyelid blepharoplasty is a common and relatively straightforward procedure performed by many surgeons. However, it is a delicate surgery, which requires a unique understanding of the eyelid anatomy and a specialist to attain the desired results. Excessive removal of skin, fat or muscle can result in an unnatural appearance and cause complications. An experienced eyelid surgeon, like Dr. Levin, understands what a youthful beautiful eyelid looks like and can assess the individual needs of each patient. During your consultation, Dr. Levin will explain which procedure is best for you to get the most natural, long-lasting results.
