There are numerous types of procedure we perform in our plastic surgery centers that may be perfect for you. Here is a list of the most common kinds of procedures as well as what to expect from them.

Eyelid Surgery

Cosmetic surgery of the eyelid includes the removal of extra skin, fat and muscle in the upper and lower eyelids to give the patient a more refreshed look.

  • Pros: You will look about 10 years younger after this procedure is performed. Recovery time is quick and the surgery lasts about two hours.
  • Risks: Some of the risks included with this surgery include blurred or double vision, swelling, dry eyes, infection, and being lightheaded.


A facelift is another type of very popular procedure in our Long Island plastic surgery center. This surgery involves the removal of excess fat, muscle tightening, and the re-wrapping of skin around the face and neck to improve saggy skin around the face, neck and jowls.

  • Pros: This procedure can easily make you feel and look years younger. It is the so-called “Fountain of Youth” that many people seek and it generally only takes one procedure to make you look tight and youthful.
  • Risks: Scarring, bleeding underneath the skin, skin damage, irregular earlobes, and a change in the shape of the hairline.

Nose Job Surgery

Nose job surgery is the reshaping of the nose’s bone and cartilage.

  • Pros: It will give you a more defined nose that is free of bumps and ridges.
  • Risks: Bleeding, red spots, infection, and scarring.

As you can see, there are certain benefits and risks that go along with each type of procedure performed by our Long Island and New York City plastic surgery experts. Our team of specialists wants you to be aware of these risks so that you feel comfortable before surgery.
