As a serious photographer, Dr. Teitelbaum realizes a portrait can only be as good as the eyes. By understanding how to avoid shadows and make the eyes sparkle, he has gained a marvelous understanding of the characteristics of a beautiful eye, and that understanding translates into improved eyelid surgery.
Unlike many other features a plastic surgeon operates upon, the eyelids have important functions, and anything Dr. Teitelbaum does with the eyes first considers these functions. Visual field improvement and avoiding dry eyes are always his first priorities.
He achieves an improvement that is dramatic yet does not specifically draw attention to itself. Skin needs to be removed, fat may need to be removed, and wrinkles smoothed. It is all too common to see when the eyes are deprived of fat or the eyelids are deficient in skin.
Dr. Teitelbaum performs his eyelift surgeries so that his patients’ eyes can be front and center, neither being concealed by the eyelids nor looking “bug-eyed.” He is an expert at avoiding surgical telltales, and will create a look that is harmonious and balanced with your face.
