Ophthalmic Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery


Dr. Jeffrey Joseph is a member of limited group of Board Certified Ophthalmologists with additional subspecialty training in oculofacial plastic and reconstructive surgery. He is one of the few surgical specialists in Orange County that focuses specifically on plastic surgery of the eyelids and surrounding structures.

He has been recognized as a Top Plastic Surgeon in Orange County by The Orange County Register in both 2016 and 2017.

Jeffrey Joseph, M.D. is an oculofacial plastic and reconstructive surgeon, focusing specifically on plastic surgery of the eyelids and surrounding structures. His additional training in this subspecialty has made him a part of an elite group of  surgeons, uniquely qualified to perform delicate procedures on the most sensitive areas in facial plastic surgery.

Dr. Joseph is passionate about providing his patients with a comforting environment while working to understand their concerns and educate them about the possibilities of rejuvenation. He uses open communication to ensure that each patient is given a beauty plan tailored to their specific desires and needs.

At The Appearance Center of Newport Beach, Dr. Joseph uses his medical expertise to bring finesse to his patient’s cosmetic cases. He performs rejuvenation to the eyes, eyelids and surrounding structures using surgical and nonsurgical techniques.

Common procedures include:

  • eyelid lift
  • eyebrow lift
  • fat transpositioning to reduce the appearance of bags under the eyes
  • brow (forehead) lift
  • and Ptosis repair, which corrects the eyelid muscle to create symmetry.

In certain cases, Dr. Joseph uses non-surgical techniques to create noticeable results with minimal invasion. One of the most common is the use of Botox and filler to camouflage the appearance of eye bags and to correct asymmetry in the eyes, usually caused by genetics, aging, or conditions that may have caused one side of the facial muscles to weaken.

When seeking cosmetic rejuvenation, it is important to look for a skilled surgeon whose main focus is in Facial Plastic Surgery. In the sensitive case of the eyes, eyelids, and surrounding structures, Dr. Joseph offers the additional benefit of providing his expertise in Oculofacial Plastics and Ophthalmology-the perfect unity of form and function. Dr. Joseph’s training has given him the ability to care for the delicate area around the eyes, while protecting and potentially improving eye health and vision. He is frequently referred patients by other Ophthalmologists, Plastic Surgeons and Dermatologists, who seek his expert level of training and renowned surgical outcomes.

In addition to his work at The Appearance Center of Newport Beach and SCARS Center, Dr. Joseph holds an appointment as Assistant Clinical Professor at the esteemed Gavin Herbert Eye Institute at the University of California, Irvine. He has made outstanding contributions in the areas of Ophthalmic research and academia, publishing over  a dozen medical journals, case reports and anatomic studies. He has also lectured at scientific symposiums, written articles for medical reference sites and has contributed to academic research textbooks, detailing Ophthalmological principles, techniques and applications.
