Blepharoplasty of the Lower Eyelid

New York NY Plastic Surgeon

The face is the most recognizable feature of every person. It is what comes to mind when you think of someone, it is where emotions are displayed, and it is also where the signs of aging tend to first appear. Most notably, the eyes often give away a person’s true age – or make him or her look older than the person is. Blepharoplasty of the lower eyelid is a surgical cosmetic procedure that targets the eye are in order to improve the appearance of tired, sagging, and baggy lower eyelids. Dr. Maurice Khosh is a respected and recognized dual board certified facial plastic surgeon, who has the skill and expertise for successfully helping patients to regain confidence and a more youthful appearance. Dr. Khosh uses both skill and artistry for creating a natural result that takes years off the face.

Men and women are both susceptible to loose, sagging, and bulging skin of the lower eyelids, with men being slightly more prone to this cosmetic flaw. As you age, the delicate skin of the eye area loses its elasticity and resilience quicker than the thicker skin found on most other places of the body. For some, this delicate skin simply wrinkles, but for others the skin begins to sag. As the skin sags, fat deposits begin to settle in the bags beneath the eyes and will bulge with the accumulation of fat and fluid. These symptoms cause people to look a great deal older than they are, and they also cause the look of constant tiredness and even grumpiness – all of which are unflattering.

Dr. Maurice Khosh uses the Transconjunctival Approach to lower eyelid blepharoplasty. This approach utilizes perfectly hidden incisions inside the lid to avoid any visible scars. Excess fat is removed or repositioned to restore a youthful appearance to the eyes, and redundant lower eyelid skin can be treated with a pinch excision so that it no longer droops below the eyes. Dr. Khosh is always interested in restoring the natural beauty to a person’s appearance, so older photographs where the eyes are clearly visible allow him a template to work towards.

If your eyes are revealing more than you want them to, contact Dr. Maurice Khosh of Manhattan to learn more about blepharoplasty of the lower eyelid. Dr. Khosh will meet with you in a private consultation to discuss your goals and whether you would like to combine other facial rejuvenation procedures for an overall enhanced result.

What Dr. Khosh's Patients Say

Meredith G.
Saw Dr. Khosh for a fractured nose. He reset my nose beautifully (and with little discomfort to me) and then discussed some of my sinus issues with me upon my follow up visit. Never felt like he was rushing me out and felt very confident in his abilities. I would highly recommend to anyone needing plastic or reconstructive options!
Jackie C.
Great front office, really good experience after what was a terrible accident. I was made to feel comfortable. Dr. Khosh is very good at what he does. I'm still healing but I'm confident of the results

After visiting and being evaluated by several doctors, I kept going back to Dr. Khosh. His tranquil spirit and professionalism were captivating. Thank you for a job well done and keeping me calm throughout the entire process. A special thanks to your staff Susan and Christine for all of their support as well. Hi highly recommend Dr. Khosh.

Upon hearing of the overwhelmingly positive experience a friend of mine had in choosing Dr. Khosh as her surgeon, I decided to make an appointment for my own septoplasty/rhinoplasty/turbinate reduction. Although I was slightly skeptical as the praise I had heard seemed a bit hyperbolic, all uncertainty dissipated after meeting the Doctor and his staff. My pre- and post-operative experience was excellent in terms of concerns adequately addressed prior to the surgery and mitigation of any bruising in the convalescent period. Despite my apparent predisposition to rather slower healing, a year after the surgery, my nose looks really pretty and my breathing entirely unobstructed! I highly recommend Dr. Khosh!
Courtney G.
AMAZING!!!!!! I had Dr Khosh perform lipo on my chin/neck and my result is unbelievable! Better than I could have expected! I met with a couple of surgeons and the second I met with Dr Khosh I knew he was the one I was going with. He was compassionate and explained every detail of what would take place during the surgery and what to expect during recovery. I even emailed a few times during recovery with various questions and he got right back to me asap which was really comforting! I honestly fully recommend Dr Khosh, he did an amazing job and is an amazing person.

Not only does his work speak for himself, but he has excellent bedside manner. His kindness and patience is above and beyond. He takes the time to answer to every question you have to help you understand the process while at the same time making you feel so comfortable. From the first consultation i knew i was in good hands. I am so pleased with the result and forever thankful.
