Lower eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty) plastic surgery is offered by board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Steven Levine. Signs of aging around the lower eyelid area are the most common reasons for a blepharoplasty consultation.
Excess skin, thin skin, eye bags, dark circles under eyes, tear trough deformity, and lines under the eyes are all concerns for which patients seek a natural looking solution. Lower eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty) addresses these concerns by rejuvenating the eyes and mid-face.
Dr. Levine was referred to my by a friend whose facelift he did. I have never had any plastic surgery. After meeting Dr. Levine, I knew why people in the salon were talking about him – he makes you feel very at ease, but is very confident. Needless to say, he did my facelift and eye surgery and I have never felt better about myself. I wish I had not waited so long to do it. ~ Vitals
