“I strive to blend the principles of ophthalmology and facial plastic surgery to meet each person’s unique needs and goals. What could be better than helping someone optimize function while looking fresh and vibrant.”


Dr. Escaravage routinely performs surgery for patients with drooping eyelids (adults and children), eyelid malpositions, uncontrolled tearing, and tumors/cancers of the eyelid and eye socket. He also has a special interest in the medical and surgical care of patients with facial spastic disorders and Grave’s thyroid eye disease. His training and practice also allow him to bring a unique perspective on periocular rejuvenation with cosmetic surgery, facial laser skin tightening/resurfacing, fillers such as Juvederm®, and wrinkle correction with Botox®.
