Serving patients seeking eyelid lift surgery in Palo Alto, San Mateo, Silicon Valley and throughout the San Jose / South Bay Area

James Newman, MD, FACS, is a skilled, fellowship-trained facial plastic surgeon performing cosmetic, reconstructive and non-surgical facial rejuvenation treatments. He is certified by both the American Board of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery and the American Board of Otolaryngology. In addition to treating patients at Premier Plastic Surgery, Dr. Newman is on faculty at Stanford University and serves as a consultant to Palo Alto Veteran's Hospital and Valley Medical Center in Santa Clara. Over the course of his impressive career, Dr. Newman has authored numerous scientific articles, and he routinely lectures on topics pertaining to facial plastic surgery both nationally and internationally. In addition, he holds advisory board positions with several plastic surgery development companies and has been named one of the Silicon Valley's Top Physicians by San Jose Magazine for two consecutive years.

Dr. Newman performs a variety of facial plastic surgery procedures, including blepharoplasty (eyelid lift) surgery. Eyelid lift surgery rejuvenates the upper and/or lower eyelids by reducing excess skin, muscle and fat caused by aging. During upper blepharoplasty, Dr. Newman creates the surgical incisions along the natural creases of the eyelids to minimize the visibility of postoperative scarring. Incisions for lower blepharoplasty are made along the lash line and smile creases of the lower eyelid and are essentially invisible to the naked eye after surgery. When performed by Dr. Newman and his medical team, eyelid surgery reverses visible signs of aging and provides patients with a more youthful, rejuvenated upper facial appearance. Eyelid lift surgery can also be combined with other facial rejuvenation procedures offered by Dr. Newman (facelift surgery, nose surgery, brow lift) and with non-surgical facial laser treatments or injectables.

In addition to eyelid surgery, Dr. Newman offers a number of other cosmetic procedures, including breast augmentation, liposuction and tummy tuck. As a qualified reconstructive surgeon, he also offers a range of restorative procedures such as reconstructive nose surgery, scar revision surgery, surgical excision of skin cancer, facial restoration surgery after injury and more.
