The Power Of Cosmetic Eye Care Choice

Dr. Edwin M. Schottenstein recognizes that each patient has unique goals when it comes to their cosmetic eye care. That is why our office offers a variety of different processes for patients to choose from. By providing you with the power to choose, we help to make your Chelsea eye care experience more unique and better suited to your long-term goals.


Over time, gravity and natural forces can cause some drooping in the upper eyelid. When that happens, a brow lift is the best way to restore your eyes’ appearance. This helps maintain a more youthful look, and it also decreases creases and extra skin. There are two primary methods for brow lifts that patients choose from:

  • Endoscopic brow lifts
  • Direct brow lifts

The difference between the two is that in an endoscopic lift, there are a series of smaller incisions made, through which endoscopes can be inserted. They are then used to life the brow up without removing skin. By contrast, in direct lifts, an incision is made across the brow, and a more traditional cosmetic procedure takes place. Endoscopic brow lifts tend to have less scarring and speedier recovery time, but only an assessment with an Upper West Side ophthalmologist can determine the best recommendation for each individual patient.

This procedure is a cosmetic surgery that can improve the appearance of both the upper and lower eyelid. An incision is made, either above the upper eyelid, below the lower one, or both. The surgeon is then able to insert and remove fat deposits, tighten muscles, and make other adjustments that help patients achieve a rejuvenated appearance and smoother, more youthful eyelids. The recovery time is minimal, and incisions are made in places where they will be hidden by natural folds in the skin.
