Aesthetic Services

Many of our patients seek advice to improve the appear- ance around their eyes. The Oculoplastic Service spe- cializes in these cosmetic concerns and offers numerous non-invasive, minimally invasive and surgical treatments for periocular rejuvenation. As with all patients, the utmost care is taken to provide a professional and con- fidential evaluation with an individual treatment plan geared towards achievement of a natural aesthetic result.

Our Team

The Ophthalmic Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery (Oculoplastic) Service at Weill Cornell Eye Associates provides evaluation and treatment of pediatric and adult diseases that affect the eyelids, tear ducts and orbit.

An oculoplastic surgeon is an ophthalmologist with spe- cialized training who performs cosmetic and reconstruc- tive procedures on the eyelids, orbit (bones and anatomic structures behind the eyeball) and lacrimal (tear drain) system. The field of oculoplastic surgery combines the precision and microsurgery of ophthalmology with the aesthetic and reconstructive concepts of plastic surgery.

uOrbital processes:

  • thyroid (Graves) eye disease

  • orbital inflammatory syndromes

  • tumors

  • fractures

  • enucleation (eye removal) & care of the

anophthalmic socket (eye socket)

uTypical reasons for cosmetic consultations include:

  • drooping, or tired, upper eyelids

  • excess eyelid skin

  • eyelid bags

  • wrinkles

  • post-cosmetic eyelid surgery complications

  • Botox, Latisse, Restylane & other fillers

Oculoplastic surgery is a small, highly selective subspe- ciality of ophthalmology.

The Oculoplastic Surgery Service at Weill Cornell Eye Associates is led by Dr. Gary Lelli, who is a fellow of the American Board of Ophthalmology (board-certified) and an active member of the American Society of Ophthalmic Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery (ASOPRS). Dr. Lelli often works in conjunction with physicians of other spe- cialities, such as dermatology, endocrinology, neurosur- gery, radiology, plastic surgery and otorhinolaryngology in order to provide customized and sub-specialized care.

uLacrimal problems:

  • nasolacrimal duct obstruction (blocked tear duct)

  • punctal malposition or stenosis (abnormal tear drain)

  • lacrimal system trauma

  • tumors

  • unexplained tearing

Dr. Lelli and the Oculoplastic Surgery Service look for- ward to welcoming you to our state-of-the-art Ophthal- mology Department at NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital/ Weill Cornell Medical Center.
