The area around your eyes, perhaps more than any other part of your face, can make you look either rested or fatigued, content or angry, youthful, or prematurely aged. Cosmetic eye services can significantly improve the appearance of puffy or baggy eyelids, fine lines, and wrinkles. The results of these aesthetic procedures can last months or years, depending on the type of treatment. 

Yale Medicine's ophthalmic plastic and reconstructive surgeons take a highly specialized approach to aesthetic eye procedures and surgery, giving you a younger, more refreshed look. “People tend to notice and focus on the eyes, which is why rejuvenation of the eyelids can make such a difference for patients from both an appearance and, in many cases, a vision standpoint,”says Mahsa Sohrab, MD, a fellowship-trained oculofacial plastic surgeon, and director of the Yale Medicine Oculoplastics & Orbit Program

Ophthalmic plastic and reconstructive surgeons pursue several years of additional training to blend their unique expertise in eye health with surgical skill. “Our ophthalmic training provides us with the skills to ensure the utmost safety of your eyes, while our aesthetic and functional training guides our selection of the proper procedures, both medical and surgical, to restore and enhance the function and appearance of the eyelids,” adds Dr. Sohrab.
