Eyelid Surgeon Manhattan

New York Eyelid Surgeon

Dr. Richard W. Westreich is a double board certified facial plastic surgeon who established a specialty in eyelid surgery in NYC. Dr. Westreich is experienced in performing cosmetic and functional eyelid procedures including upper eyelid blepharoplasty, lower eyelid surgery, Asian eyelid surgery, double eyelid surgery, functional blepharoplasty, ptosis correction and brow lifts. He also offers his clients revitalizing, age-reversing non-surgical treatments such as BOTOX, chemical peels, facial fillers and Exilis skin tightening. He has completed over 3,000 procedures and is considered one of New York City's best choice for cosmetic eye procedures.

Dr. Westreich attended New York University’s School of Medicine, graduating with honors in cell biology research. His extensive training continued at the renowned Mount Sinai Hospital, also in Manhattan, where he specialized in otolaryngology and facial plastic surgery. Thanks to his innovative techniques and passion for knowledge and education, Dr. Westreich is frequently called upon to contribute to peer-reviewed industry journals, to speak at conferences and on the lecture circuit, and to appear on radio and television programming. He was selected as among NYC’s top surgeons by Castle Connolly and New York Magazine.

Rest assured that Dr. Westreich will never offer a procedure just because it is in style or because a patient requests it. While he is eager to please his clients, the doctor’s first obligation is to protect the health and well being of every patient who walks through the door, and to that end he will never perform a surgery that he doesn’t believe is necessary.



Although he is welcomed at local hospitals throughout the New York area, Dr. Westreich has access to safe, accredited outpatient medical centers on the Upper East Side where you will experience the same high standards of cleanliness and integrity, but in a more convenient and private setting without the long wait. Some selected procedures can even be performed in our private office. Each of our staff members are hand-chosen by Dr. Westreich for their accomplished reputation in their respective fields, along with their sincere desire to see each patient happy and satisfied with their procedure. From our state-of- the-art equipment, technology and software, to our pleasant and stylish reception areas, our facility boasts comfort and tranquility that will make your stay a rewarding adventure rather than a chore.


Dr. Westreich reserves ample time to get to know each of his patients. This personalized approach is part of why he obtains such outstanding results and is consistently called one of the best eyelid surgeons in New York City by his patients. He is devoted to answering all of your questions and concerns in depth, helping you to gain the knowledge and education required to take the next step in your treatment. The doctor is careful to record your medical history in detail, and will work in tandem with your eye doctor when required to ensure the procedure is right for your needs. Dr. Westreich will present you with a large library of before and after photographs of your chosen procedure so you can begin to form realistic expectations. For appropriate procedures, the doctor can furnish you with advanced computer imaging, projecting your results as they may appear after eyelid surgery.

Whether you have changed your mind about a certain look, have received subpar surgery at another less reputable practice, or have undergone eyelid treatment a long time ago and need an “update”, Dr. Westreich possesses the experience and meticulous skill to deliver a refreshed aesthetic with long term potential. Revision surgery can present several important challenges, including how to cope with scar tissue from former procedures. Only an eyelid surgeon of impeccable ability with a sharp eye for detail can be trusted to not only correct flaws but to offer results that exceed your expectations for correction. Clients from throughout the New York City area and beyond all rely on Dr. Westreich for transcendent, all-natural results that can’t be found elsewhere.


Many Asian clients suffer from monolids, or single eyelids. With double eyelid surgery at Dr. Westreich’s prestigious Manhattan office, the eyes can take on a more attractive, elongated and open appearance. There are multiple methods of accomplishing double eyelid surgery, including the full incision method, the partial incision method and the DST or suture method. Each of these approaches has its merits and drawbacks, and can be discussed in depth during the consultation process. Which method is chosen will depend on many factors, including the thickness of your eyelid skin, the fat volume of your lids, your age, your gender, and your previous surgeries, if any.

Just as the eyelids may sag, droop and impair vision, so too do the eyebrows and lower forehead; infringe on a person’s appearance, sometimes altering the facial expression drastically, to one of disgruntlement or irritability. The eyebrows may also cause diminished sight when excess fat, tissue and skin hang over the eye. Dr. Westreich can correct these issues, smoothing away forehead wrinkles while replenishing youthfulness and vitality via the smile. A brow lift is an excellent complement to eyelid surgery, as often both are required to experience a true shift in the aesthetics of the upper face.

Although he is known primarily for his superior cosmetic surgery results, Dr. Westreich is also a champion of anti-aging technology, including his latest acquisition, the Exilis skin tightening dual (ultrasound and radiofrequency) therapy. Dr. Westreich is passionate about providing innovative procedures that deliver advanced, life-affirming solutions for the skin as they work to reverse the damaging effects of the sun, the elements, gravity and aging itself. He is also proud to offer a variety of dermal fillers and injectables, including BOTOX that work in conjunction with surgical techniques to fulfill your aesthetic goals. This collaborative approach, called the F.I.T. Lift, blends the most state of the art techniques into an overall treatment plan, which delivers natural and noticeable results without surgery.

Aesthetician services such as microneedling, facials, and chemical peels are personalized to your individual skin type, tone and texture.
