Dr. Amiya Prasad

Eye lift Specialist Dr. Amiya Prasad

As a leading specialist in practice for 20 years, Dr. Prasad represents a new paradigm in Cosmetic Surgery of the eyes and face. His background includes certification in OphthalmologyOculofacial Plastic Surgery, and Facial Cosmetic Surgery. A Diplomate of the American Board of Cosmetic Surgery in Facial Cosmetic Surgery, his training and certification far exceeds the board certification requirements of Plastic Surgery in his area of expertise.

Dr. Prasad believes that individuals who are well-adjusted and comfortable with themselves have very specific cosmetic goals in mind. In order to achieve these goals, Dr. Prasad encourages a personalized approach to each patient in order to establish a relationship of trust that goes beyond the medical aspect. He treats his clients with a realistic attitude about their own youthful preservation. He believes that it is very important to be able to restore and rejuvenate a patient’s image in such a way that they will still retain the unique character of their face and still look like themselves after a procedure.

Natural appearance as a surgical style

Dr. Prasad’s patients are proud of their eyes looking great, with close friends and family being none the wiser that surgery was ever performed. The marks of great upper eyelid surgery are natural-looking eyes that are bright and vibrant, with no trace of scars, stitches, or too much skin being removed.

Dr. Prasad’s go-to approach for lower eyelid surgery for puffy under eye bags is transconjunctival blepharoplasty, an approach from the inside of the eyelid so no incisions are visible – it’s a more complex procedure for the surgeon that preserves the delicate anatomy and leaves no trace of surgery.

Sought the world over

As a leading Oculofacial/Oculoplastic surgeon in New York City, Dr. Prasad’s reputation as an eyelift super-specialist has patients around the world seeking his artistic and natural style for their eyes. Dr. Prasad performs intricate ptosis correction surgery, a specialty of Oculofacial/Oculoplastic surgeons, for patients coming from around North America and across the globe. Patients dissatisfied with or suffering from complications of eyelid surgery done elsewhere make their way to New York City to have Dr. Prasad revise and repair past cosmetic eyelid surgeries.

He is well known among the Tri-State and global Asian community for his results in Asian double eyelid surgery. Dr. Prasad is known to treat different skin types with custom approaches for those of African, Latin, Indian and Mediterranean descent.

Fast recovery

The desire to make eyes even more beautiful appeals to a broad scope of society.Dr. Prasad envisioned early on that eyelid surgery should be performed without minimal impact on people’s busy lives. He exclusively uses local anesthesia with his patented LITE™ IV sedation so patients are conscious and relaxed during eyelid procedures. Local anesthesia allows his patients to get back to their daily routine within a week of surgery.

Specialty procedures

Eyelid ptosis is due to an improper muscle function or a weakened muscle that causes the eyelid to droop. Surgical correction of the muscle that raises the eyelid is the exclusive domain of oculofacial/oculoplastic surgeons like Dr. Prasad. Having this surgery attempted by a cosmetic surgeon can lead to unnecessary eyelid skin removal which won’t correct the problem, and can lead to other problems like eyelids not being able to close fully.
