Why Eyelid Surgery (aka Blepharoplasty)?
The eyelids are one of the first areas of the face to age. A combination of genetics, sun damage and aging effect one or more layers of the eyelid. The surgical approach depends entirely on which layers are contributing to their aged appearance. Typically, this involves removing the upper and lower eyelid skin and removing excess eyelid fat that is contributing to the eyelid bulge. Eyelid surgery may be performed alone or in combination with other rejuvenation procedures such as Laser resurfacing, fat grafting, microneedling and fillers.

Dr. Stein performed eyelid surgery on me almost 2 years ago and I am extremely pleased with the result. I had little to no scarring or puffiness around my eyes, the incisions healed quickly without complication. Overall, I had a great experience with this surgery and highly recommend Dr. Stein. He is a very capable and professional Surgeon with an excellent bedside manner! Thank you.
