Your eyes say so much about you. They can say you look young, alert and enthusiastic-or old, tired and uninterested. Do you find yourself looking in the mirror and thinking, "I get plenty of rest, so why do I look so tired?"
Eyelid lift (blepharoplasty) is a popular cosmetic procedure that corrects the downward shifting of the brow and reduces the fullness of the upper eyelid skin relatively minor surgery can return a youthful look to the face, and can also correct the vision problems that often accompany drooping eyelids. Dr. Koudsi also performs lower eyelid blepharoplasty to remove the fat pads that cause the "bags" under eyes. The results of eyelid surgery can be dramatic.
Your eyelid lift is performed using modern laser techniques. Because the laser performs efficient bloodless surgery and seals vessels and nerves, there is usually less pain, swelling and bruising than with other techniques. The result: some patients return to work in as few as 1-3 days.
The laser procedures are performed in the comfortable atmosphere of our friendly, modern facility. No hospitalization is necessary. Simply schedule a convenient appointment, have your procedure, and return home the same day.
When drooping eyelids impair vision, insurance may cover some or all of the cost. Medicare and most major insurance plans are accepted
We were all born with smooth, baby-soft skin. As we go through life, our skin is subject to numerous experiences that leave it less than perfect. Time, heredity and gravity create fine lines and wrinkles, as do overexposure to the sun, alcohol use, and smoking. Other surface imperfections such as moles, warts and acne also may develop over time to mar the skin.
We are now able to remove surface imperfections and dramatically reduce lines and wrinkles with a new procedure called laser skin resurfacing. Using the laser, we can gently removed sun-damaged, aging skin layer-by-layer, helping to protect and stimulate regeneration of the deeper healthy skin.
The resurfacing laser uses a beam of laser light to vaporize or "erase" scars, lines, wrinkles, crows feet and other skin defects. Laser light penetrates to a very precise controlled depth, making the procedure safe and predicable, and reducing the risk of scarring or pigmentation problems. Laser eyelid skin resurfacing is bloodless and can be performed in about 30 minutes in our office, without the costs and risks of hospitalization or anesthesia.
New skin growth usually take less than 12 days. During this period, you cannot wear make-up and will probably want to postpone social engagements. Pinkness lasts longer, but can easily be covered with make-up or concealer.
Because the laser is gentle, comfort during and after the procedure is improved, and helps with a more rapid return to your normal routine.
A private consultation with Dr. Koudsi will determine if you are a candidate for cosmetic laser resurfacing or laser eyelid lift.
During your consultation, Dr. Koudsi will review your special needs, and explain more about the cosmetic eyelid procedure.
