EYELID PROCEDURES

Blepharoplasty / Eyelid Plastic Surgery

 

Patients can develop a condition called Dermatochalasis which means excessive skin over the eyelids or puffy eyelids. This condition interferes with superior vision. The only correction for this condition is blepharoplasty which involves removal of the extra skin and fat tissue to restore the superior vision and the youthful appearance of the eyes and face. This is an outpatient procedure.

During your initial consultation, Dr. Nazari will discuss your particular condition, your expectations, and the probable outcome of treatment.You will be shown several before and after treatment photographs of patients having similar conditions, and you will receive an explanation of your treatment. Before and after photos may be taken of the area to be treated to document your results.

Ptosis means droopiness of the eyelids. This condition could be caused at birth (congenital) or develops because trauma, sometimes contact lens use among others. The treatment is surgical correction of the muscle of the eyelid that opens the eye. Repairing the muscle restores the eyelid position to its natural position.

 

Removal of Cysts and Masses around the Eye

 

Cysts (fluid filled mass) and skin growth can occur around the eye. Most of the time these conditions are benign and a simple excision in office can correct the problem. Sometimes the growth can be more serious including Basal Cell Carcinoma among others which require more than simple excision. It is very important to examine any growth or masses than occur around the eye to exclude more serious conditions.
