I specialize in eyelid surgery, which I have been performing for the last 25 years. After becoming board certified in ophthalmology, I completed a fellowship approved by the American Society of Ophthalmic Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery (ASOPRS) at the UCLA-Jules Stein Eye Institute. I have subsequently lectured at UCLA blepharoplasty (cosmetic eyelid surgery) courses.
This specialized training gives me extensive knowledge of the delicate tissues around the eyes.
You can see a few of my before and after photos at our main website. I have lots more available for your review during an office consultation. Keep in mind that I usually take my "after" photos at about 6 weeks after surgery. Scars continue to soften and fade for about a year and for most patients are barely visible by 6 - 12 months. Of course, you can cover them with makeup just a couple of weeks after surgery. Lower lid surgeries often have no scars at all.
When you come in for a consultation, we'll talk about your goals for surgery, what the process entails, what to expect during recovery, and how long you can anticipate being off work.
