Dr. Prasad’s Signature Style in Cosmetic Upper Eyelid Surgery
Hairdressers and makeup artists are some of the biggest fans of Dr. Prasad’s work. The way he designs his upper eyelid procedures and his fine stitching technique continue to impress the people who are referred to him and the clients who come to him. In fact, Dr. Prasad has seen work done by other doctors who claim to do a great job at doing their stitches and has found them to be less than impressive. One of his patients said to him when they saw another well known doctor’s stitches, “he doesn’t sew like you Dr. Prasad”.
Many of Dr. Prasad’s clients ask “where are the stitches?” when they look in the mirror after surgery. After they have healed, many of his patients show off their eyes to friends who admire the fact that there is practically no sign of previous surgery on their eyelids. Upper eyelid surgery is not just a simple removal of extra skin. In fact, the skin plays only a part of the procedure. Sculpting the soft tissue and creating a natural appearance is more art than it is technique alone. “Most doctors who perform cosmetic eyelid surgery can do a decent job which many people find acceptable (since they don’t know better) but very few Cosmetic Surgeons perform exceptional eyelid surgery. I see people all the time whose upper eyelid incision scars fall outside the crease and can be seen when the eyes are open or the crease incision is too high on the upper eyelid.”
Upper lid blepharoplasties are performed to get rid of the hooding of the eyes. Lower lid blepharoplasties address the bags (buggy eyes)or festoons that appear under the eyes that give a person an angry or exhausted expression. Upper lid blepharoplasties are performed through the lid crease and the scar is well hidden whether the eyes are open or closed. Women will find that eyeshadow is much more easily applied. All patients will find that their face is significantly rejuvenated and they will be described as “energetic”. Dr. Prasad has pioneered a particular technique in blepharoplasty surgery known as the “SmartLift™ eyelift,” which involves minimal incisions, local anesthesia, and very natural results. The SmartLift™ eyelift differs from traditional eyelid blepharoplasty surgery because it involves minimal risk, minimal anesthesia and maximal results. Using local anesthesia means that the downtime after the procedure is much less than blepharoplasty surgery performed under general anesthesia. In addition, general anesthesia has more attendant risks than local anesthesia, so generally speaking, the SmartLift™ approach is certainly a safer option.
Combined with Dr. Prasad’s LITE™ anesthesia technique, a Smartlift™ eyelift is able to provide the optimal procedure with the least amount of risk. Dr. Prasad has developed a standardized SmartLift™ System for blepharoplasty surgery to properly classify a person’s eyelids on the basis of gender, age, ethnic background and skin condition. This analysis allows him to select the right approach that is properly personalized to an individual patient’s eyelift. The SmartLift™ System is a useful tool, but the personalized artistic touch of Dr. Prasad is what makes all the difference in the beauty of your results.

Dr. Amiya Prasad – The Cosmetic Eyelid Surgery and Facelift Surgery Superspecialist
When you know the facts, you’ll be hard pressed to find another doctor with Dr. Prasad’s professional background, experience, personality, passion, staff and facilities.
Plastic Surgery as a field is too broad for one doctor to be exceptional in all areas. With the advances in technology and techniques as well as the needs of the modern client, I don’t believe that “good enough” is doing right by our clients. As Malcolm Gladwell described in his book “Outliers”, exceptionally talented people whether they are musicians or pilots have a consistent history of practicing for “10,000 hours”. When US Airways Flight 1549 had to land emergently in the Hudson River, Chesley Burnett “Sully” Sullenberger III was able to land the plane safely based on thousands of hours of experience as a commercial airline pilot. Based on this core belief of specialization as a way to provide higher level care, Dr. Prasad approached his specialty of eyelid and facial rejuvenation surgery as a specialist as opposed to the broad approach of general plastic surgery.
Dr. Prasad states, “I believe it is a great honor for people to trust me with their appearance and I treat every client as if they were my family. Physicians when asked to look for the best specialist for a member of their family, they look for doctors with specialized experience, expertise and ethics.” “When you take care of people like you would your own family, you are committed to excellence in surgical skills, safety in anesthesia and medical care and V.I.P treatment in all areas of their experience and make sure there is as rapid a recovery as possible”
“Treat your patients the way you treat your family”
How Does Dr. Prasad’s Qualifications Compare With Board Certified Plastic Surgeons or Board Certified Facial Plastic Surgeons?
Dr. Prasad’s training and experience in eye plastic surgery far exceeds the standards of these other plastic surgery boards. Surgery around the eyes is not to be taken lightly. Every year, hundreds of people have complications from eyelid surgery and desperately search for specialists like Dr. Prasad to help them. The ugly truth is that being a superspecialist in eyelid cosmetic surgery gives Dr. Prasad many advantages over other plastic surgeons but competition and professional rivalry keeps many doctors from accepting this fact and performing procedures they are not trained enough to do. In addition, Dr. Prasad has distinguished himself by his artistic touch and exceptional skill in performing blepharoplasty or eyelid surgery. In practice since 1995, Dr. Prasad has established a reputation as one of the best eye plastic surgeons for cosmetic eyelid surgery.
Not Every Plastic or Cosmetic Surgeon is an Artist
As a teaching surgeon and having worked in the field of cosmetic surgery, Dr.Prasad can share with you his firsthand experience of seeing that many board certified plastic surgeons use a “cookie cutter” approach to cosmetic surgery rather than an artistic approach. Have you wondered why so many wealthy and famous people have such bad plastic surgery? They are often advised to go to the “best doctors” as listed in magazines or in positions as department heads at major universities and hospitals and yet they have less than desirable results. “In my opinion, the ideal Cosmetic
Surgeon is technically competent, artistically gifted and deeply caring for his patients. Artistry cannot be taught. Understanding balance and natural appearance is part of your DNA”. Dr. Prasad’s talents as an artist was recognized by the Long Island Arts Council where he received “The Arty Award” and received a Citation from the Nassau County Legislature.
