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.
