Blepharoplasty (Eyelid Surgery) on the Upper East Side

Our world is a fast-moving one, and while we may feel the physical effects of not getting as much rest as we need, our eyes can show it from the outside. Some eyelid conditions like droopy eyes or excessive lower eyelid skin can be genetic and give the appearance of being overly tired or even sad. Bags under the eyes often make a person seem chronically tired and can even be caused by health conditions, such as allergies and those that cause fluid retention.

The face you present to the world may not reflect your actual emotions, but with a simple, outpatient surgery, you may be able to change that. Dr. Khosh is experienced in blepharoplasty, or eyelid surgery, and may be able to give you a youthful and more rested appearance at his offices on the Upper East Side.

When the Eyes Look Alive

You could have smooth, glowing skin, very few wrinkles, and feel rested and ready to tackle the day. However, if your eyes look tired, then the rest does not show. Studies have proven that our eyes indicate to the world how we feel, or at least how we are perceived to feel.

Over years of stress, not getting enough sleep, allergies and more, our eyes take the impact and can appear droopy, sad and dark. This may not be how you feel today, as these have taken years to affect the appearance of your eyes. Blepharoplasty is the most recommended treatment for these issues, and it is proven effective where eye creams and other similar treatments can only do so much.

Both Functional and Aesthetic

Blepharoplasty is not solely an aesthetic procedure meant to improve appearance. Often, eyelid surgery is used to help improve vision and may be recommended by your Upper East Side optician or ophthalmologist. This is because excess fat in the upper eyelid, or excessive drooping due to lax muscles, can get in the way of your vision.

Aesthetically, blepharoplasty can help you appear better rested, younger and more confident. Through the firming and tightening of the skin and muscles of the eyelids, you can look and feel younger. For bags under the eyes, the excess fat and fluid that is retained in the area are removed, and the skin is tightened to lessen their appearance. Depending on the cause, Dr. Khosh may also recommend lifestyle changes or follow-up with a medical specialist to prevent the bags from reoccurring.

Benefits of Blepharoplasty

There are many benefits of blepharoplasty. You will usually be home the same day as your surgery on the Upper East Side, and able to recover over just a few days. Patients normally see the full results after only a few weeks, once the skin and muscles have healed.

Blepharoplasty is considered a minor cosmetic surgery by many, but it may also be considered necessary for vision. Your insurance company may cover part or all of the surgery, depending on the medical necessity. If this is one of the reasons you are seeking blepharoplasty, Dr. Khosh and his office staff on the Upper East Side of NY will work alongside your eye doctor to determine the functional benefits of blepharoplasty and submit these to your insurance company.

You can also see a great improvement in your self-confidence since you will appear better rested, less stressed and even younger. Because healing typically takes much less time than other more intensive facial rejuvenation surgeries, you will see these benefits much more quickly.

During your consultation, Dr. Khosh will go over how the procedure can help improve your appearance and your vision, as well as what to expect from it. To discuss your reasons for seeking blepharoplasty and what result you would like to see, call (212) 339-9988 or contact us online to schedule your consultation at his Upper East Side office.

What Dr. Khosh's Patients Say


Based on 174 reviews

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

Joann M.
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.
Leah G.
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.
Frieda S.
i can finally breathe!! Dr. Khosh made the entire experience a breeze, it was truly a pleasure to be under his care. I am forever thankful and highly recommend him. 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.
