The Rhode Island Eye Institute offers a full range of surgical and non-surgical cosmetic procedures that can dramatically improve the appearance of the eyes, forehead, face, and neck.  Ophthalmic plastic and reconstructive surgeons are trained and certified in both eye surgery and plastic surgery making them the best qualified to perform delicate and complex procedures. “Puffiness”, “bags”, and “circles” around the eyes, drooping brows, as well as fine lines, wrinkles, jowls, scars in the skin, and many other manifestations of the aging process can now be treated often with minimal or no downtime.
The latest advances in cosmetic facial procedures and skin rejuvenation make it easier than ever to maintain a healthy, youthful appearance. Some of these procedures such as Botox®, and facial fillers – including Restylane, Collagen and Juvederm – are non-invasive, requiring no downtime at all.  Others, such as blepharoplasty (eyelid tuck), fat injections, or liposuction require minimal downtime.

When considering cosmetic surgery, especially of the eyes and surrounding face, it is wise to consult a certified ophthalmic plastic surgeon (see, an ophthalmologist, who specializes in the sensitive tissues around the eyes.  There are less than 500 of these specially trained physicians in the country.
