The eyes are one of the most complex and delicate features of the face. The eyelids are a miraculous combination of muscles, tendons and skin that are vital to the protection of the eyes and their appearance. When an eyelid is damaged due to disease or trauma, it requires extensive skills to reconstruct this complex feature. Facial plastic surgeon Dr. Gary Linkov at City Facial Plastics has the needed expertise and skill to restore both function and aesthetics to damaged eyelids through reconstructive plastic surgery.

The eyelid is critical for the protection of the eye. When it is damaged, the eye can be exposed, leading to moisture loss and possible injury. Reconstructing a damaged eyelid requires meticulous skill to ensure proper movement and function. While function is the most important aspect, the appearance of the eyelid is also a crucial component of repair, especially to the patient. Dr. Linkov uses his extensive experience to restore both function and aesthetics in eyelid reconstructive, or oculoplastic surgery, to give his patients the best results.

Causes of Eyelid Damage

As crucial as the eyelid is to vision and eye protection, it is vulnerable to damage. Trauma from auto accidents, sports injuries and other types of impact can tear or lacerate the eyelid. Burns can also cause extensive damage to this delicate area. Another common cause of eyelid damage is skin cancer. If Mohs surgery is performed, skin and tissue removal on or near the eyelid can impact appearance.

Dr. Linkov is experienced in repairing various types of damage that can occur to the eyelid. His talent for facial reconstruction restores a balanced and symmetrical eyelid to improve the appearance of his patients. Skin and tissue grafts are often needed, recreating a functioning, appealing eyelid.

If you or a family member have a damaged eyelid and want to explore reconstructive surgery, contact City Facial Plastics today. We will schedule a consultation appointment for you to meet with Dr. Linkov and discuss your options for eyelid reconstruction.

Highly recommend! Dr. Gary helped me with painful lip scar tissue after an accidental fall a year earlier. I’ve known Gary for 20 years and since the first day knowing him he’s grown as a medical professional with an innate sense of detail and kind demeanor. Excellent client follow up and post treatment care.

Dr. Gary is a fantastic NYC plastic surgeon who treats me and to whom I would recommend all my friends and family. He has a very conservative approach to fillers and I was extremely impressed with the way he filled my nasolabial lines that had been bothering me for years. It was painless, and I did not experience any bruising at all. Getting this done gave me so much confidence - I wish I worked with him years ago!

Rachel G.

Wow is all I can say! Fantastic doctor that gives you an extremely pleasant, professional, and realistic experience. Would highly recommend and give 6 stars if I could.
