About Dr. Anthony C. Berlet

Rejuvenating a patient’s appearance, rather than altering it, has been the hallmark of my plastic surgery practice for over 30 years now. Having an extensive background in art, along with a degree in architecture from the University of Pennsylvania, enables me to deliver natural-looking results while performing blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery), breast reduction, facelift, liposuction, and rhinoplasty procedures.


In fact, rhinoplasty is the surgery most related to architecture in the sense that I am rebuilding a structure in both a functional and aesthetic sense within a three-dimensional setting. Liposuction is a sculpting process where my experience allows me to understand exactly where to remove fat while not over-resecting or under-resecting. A surprising amount of artistic ability is required to perform liposuction well. Breast reduction is more of a puzzle when it comes to reshaping and rotating the tissue, and facelifts are more craft than art, but aesthetic skills are still required to achieve the best possible results.


My approach for eyelid rejuvenation has evolved over the years. The goal is to reveal the underlying shape without changing it. The design of skin resection of the upper lids is now extended laterally to improve lateral shape and reduction of crow’s feet. The removal of the lower lid “bags” is done by maintaining a large pretarsal strip of muscle and then repairing muscle afterward to preserve the lower lid position. Doing so gives the eye a youthful and rested appearance. The eyes are the window to the soul, so helping patients feel better about that part of their body without changing the way they look is very rewarding.
