Eyelid surgery is performed to remove excess skin and/or fat from the upper and lower lids. This procedure can also help to raise droopy eyelids as well as remove puffiness under the eyes. Dr. Cohn will perform your surgery either under local or general anesthesia. A consultation will help determine what will be best for you. When doing the upper lids, an elliptical incision is made, a small amount of skin is removed and then sutured closed. When having the lower lids done an incision is made inside the lower lid and a very small amount of fat is removed. The procedure itself will take 1-2 hours. Your healing time is approximately 1 week.
As we age, our skin loses elasticity. This results in sagging and wrinkles. In the past, the way to change the resulting effects was to undergo a face- or neck-lift. However, in recent years facial fillers have become more popular, and in most cases, facial fillers can achieve the same or better outcomes in a more non-invasive, cost effective way. Fillers plump your skin and help to increase the natural production of collagen. When a doctor uses fillers correctly, the face and neck can be beautifully reshaped with minimal downtime and lower costs.

A tear in the ear lobe can occur due to a few different reasons. Damage can be sustained from injury, excessive use of heavy earrings or by piercing using a device with a large circumference. This leaves the ear lobe looking unattractive as well as preventing the person from being able to wear earrings.
Dr. Cohn can repair the ear lobe by excising skin on the inside of the earring tear. The ear lobe is then sutured back together. Once the patient has healed completely from the procedure, this will take approximately 6 months, the ear(s) can be re-pierced.
This procedure is fairly simple and is performed under a local anesthetic. The procedure will take around 45 minutes per ear lobe. The patient will need to be seen again 7 days after the procedure for a follow-up and to remove the sutures.
