Dr. Levine specializes in attention to detail & ensures natural-looking aesthetic results. Every blepharoplasty surgery is customized to the patient’s unique desired surgical outcome.
I recently had a face lift procedure and eyelid lift surgery with Dr. Steven Levine. I am 58 years old and had the realization that everything on my face now hung about 2 inches lower! I am beyond happy with Dr. Levine’s amazing artistry. He gave me back at least fifteen years and for that I am forever grateful. It was worth every penny! His office staff was ever so accommodating and friendly. I feel at home and I will never go anywhere else. Thank you, Dr. Levine! *Hugs* ~ Yelp
Both upper blepharoplasty and lower blepharoplasty are very popular facial plastic surgery procedures. The popularity of this procedure reflects the importance of the eyes in perfecting one’s overall appearance and facial rejuvenation. As a matter of fact, blepharoplasty is one of the most commonly performed functional and cosmetic facial plastic surgery procedures in the world.
The Benefits Include:
- Rejuvenated appearance
- Younger appearance
- Reduces sagging, crepey eyelid skin
- Reduces puffy-looking eye area skin (eye bags or bulges)
- Creates a more visible eyelid platform (lid crease)
- Allows for easier application of eye makeup or mascara
- Reduces a tired, aged facial appearance by effectively ‘opening’ up your eye area
- Lifts and reduces “baggy eyes” and reduces shadows caused by drooping eyelid skin
- Improves your field of vision by uncovering more of the IRIS blocked by ptotic skin
Aging of the upper and lower eyelids is normally due to a combination of loose skin and protrusion of fat.
- Upper blepharoplasty surgery exclusively concentrates on the region between the eyebrow and the eyelashes.
- Lower eyelid blepharoplasty focuses on the area between the eyelashes and the cheek. In essence, an upper blepharoplasty (eyelid lift) plastic surgery procedure removes excess skin and muscle from these areas and either reduces or re-positions the underlying fat to a more youthful appearance.
