Medical & Cosmetic Surgery
(Eye, Face & Neck)
The most common cosmetic surgery we perform in our clinic. This procedure improves the appearance of the upper and lower eyelids by tightening muscles and tissue or removing excess fat and skin.
A condition in which the eyelid is against the eyeball but rests too low (lower eyelid) or too high (upper eyelid), often leaving the eye exposed and dry. Untreated, this can lead to chronic tearing, eye irritation, redness, pain, crusting, discharge, damage to the cornea, and blurry vision.
As we age, excess skin on the forehead follows the pull of gravity and causes your eyebrows to droop, pushing the excess skin over the eyelid. There is a natural tendency to use the forehead muscles to raise the eyebrows, causing deep furrows to form in the forehead. We can perform a variety of brow or forehead lifts including an endoscopic approach to restore afresh and youthful appearance.
A face lift will address the looseness that comes with aging skin. We can smooth out pronounced wrinkles and give you the youthful appearance you deserve.
We perform a minimally invasive cosmetic procedure that lifts sagging skin around the neck for a smoother appearance and more sculpted jawline. MyEllevate™ uses the ICELED® surgical suture system to refine the neck and jawline area and take years off of your appearance.
One or both eyelids may droop slightly, or it may cover the entire pupil. In some cases, it can restrict and even block normal vision. It can be inherited, present at birth or occur later in life. Severe drooping can obstruct your vision as the eyelid gradually droops lower and lower, eventually covering the eye.
A slowly developing lump that forms due to blockage and swelling of an oil gland in the eyelid. If warm compresses fail, we can drain the fluid and remove the material collected within the nodule.
Eyelid Lesions (Benign and Malignant) – Early detection and treatment are crucial when skin cancer develops, especially when skin changes occur in delicate areas near the eyes. We specialize in early diagnosis, removal and reconstruction of facial cancers. If you notice a new skin abnormality, you should not wait to have it evaluated by a professional.
Reconstruction After Cancer Resection – We work in conjunction with many Dermatologists and Mohs surgeons to reconstruct around the eye. Trust your face with no one other than a trained oculofacial surgeon.
IPL & Laser Treatment
What is IPL?
IPL stands for intense pulsed light and is somewhat similar to a laser treatment. Instead of one wavelength of light to reach the skin, as in a treatment from a laser, IPL penetrates the first layer of skin, called the epidermis, to treat the second layer, or dermis. This causes less damage to the outer layer of skin. The damaged area from the treatment beneath the first layer is then removed by the body’s natural skin repair mechanisms, resulting in a smoother and more youthful appearance of the skin.
Within the skin, pigment layers convert the light energy to heat, which destroys unwanted pigmentation to clear the appearance of freckles and other unwanted spots. It can also destroy hair follicles and prevent them from growing back again. IPL treatments can be used anywhere on the body but may not be as effective on areas that are uneven.
