I also perform cosmetic eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty), botulinum toxin anti-wrinkle injections and facial fillers (eg Restylane). Managing eyes that water excessively performing tear duct bypass surgery (dacryocystorhinostomy) by both the external skin incision approach and also the latest endonasal, no incision technique. Management of thyroid eye disease, including orbital decompression for protruding eyes and eyelid surgery for lid retraction and orbital fat prolapse.
