Brow Lift in Santa Monica

Gravity and loss of volume can cause the skin of the forehead to sag over time. This causes the brow to descend and the brow tissue to deflate, which leads to hooding of the upper eyelids and an angry, tired, or sad expression. One of the ways this can be treated is with a brow lift: a surgical procedure in which the forehead is elevated, reducing wrinkles and creases and creating a more youthful and rested appearance. This can be done endoscopically with a mini-camera, or open.

Though this procedure can vary by degrees of invasiveness, brow lifts typically involve repositioning the muscles of the forehead, and often entail volume augmentation and tissue removal. Elevating the brow can improve the heaviness of the upper eyelids, and enhance the effects of an upper blepharoplasty.

Ask the surgeons at Eyesthetica which custom approach is right for you.

Brow Lift Before and After

Upper Blepharoplasty

An upper blepharoplasty, or eyelid lift, is a procedure in which the excess skin and fat are removed from the top eyelid. The surgeon will make an incision in the natural crease of the eyelid to prevent visible scarring, remove the excess skin, and sculpt fat that has collected on the upper eyelid for the creation of a youthful, natural look. If a patient is a candidate for both an upper and lower blepharoplasty, they generally opt to do both at once for reduced recovery time.

Upper Bleph

Double Eyelid Surgery in Santa Monica

Double eyelid surgery is a special type of upper blepharoplasty which creates a crease in the upper eyelid where none previously existed. This helps to “open” the eye. Depending on the thickness and fat distribution of the eyelids, double eyelid surgery can be performed with a minimal incision to avoid visible scarring.

Droopy Eyelid (Ptosis) Repair in Santa Monica

Ptosis refers to drooping upper eyelids. Ptosis is caused by the stretching of the tissue and disinsertion of the levator muscle tendon, which is responsible for raising the eyelid. When the upper eyelids droop low enough to obstruct the pupil, it causes a decrease in the superior field of vision, trouble reading, and driving challenges, which can lead to headaches from having to constantly raise the brow to see. Before upper eyelid surgery, be sure your surgeon can assess eyelid ptosis as a cause for your upper eyelid appearance.

The surgical methods to repair ptosis vary depending on the extent of the eyelid elevation needed. Your eyelid surgeon will discuss with you in detail the type of surgical approach that is right for you.

Lower Blepharoplasty / Eye Bag Removal in Santa Monica

A lower blepharoplasty or “eye bag removal” is performed by removing the excess fat and skin beneath the lower eyelid, to reduce the appearance of puffiness or “bags” beneath the eyes. The amount of fat removed must be carefully calculated by the eyelid surgeon – as removing too much can cause a “hollowing” effect as the patient ages. Occasionally, the fat that is already there is repositioned or augmented to reduce the appearance of aging. Incisions are hidden by the lower lash line or inside the eyelid. Before proceeding with eyelid surgery, make sure your eyelid surgeon is a member of ASOPRS.

Lower Bleph

Midface Lift in Santa Monica

Midfacial lifting is reserved for patients in need of lower eyelid elevation and support. The procedure resuspends the lower eyelid, repositions deeper soft tissue, and augments the cheek. Ask your doctor if this procedure is right for you.

Mid Face

Fat Repositioning and Fat Transfer in Santa Monica

When fat is already present around or under the eyelids, it can be shifted into the hollow of the eyelid for a fuller appearance when there is fat deficiency or volume loss. These procedures are reserved for a select group of patients, and your surgeon will review treatment options with you.

Fat Repositioning

Fat Grafting in Santa Monica

Fat can be taken from other parts of the body and used to fill creases and wrinkles in the face. Fat grafting is comparable to other injectable treatments it creates a more vibrant, youthful appearance. Fat grafting carries a lower risk of infection than fillers because the fat is taken from other parts of the patient’s own body. If you’re debating between choosing fat grafting or fillers to meet your aesthetic goals, the surgeons at Eyesthetica can help you weigh your options.

Fat Grafting

Lip Enhancement in Santa Monica

The aging process can leave lips looking thin and lined. Lip enhancement is a cosmetic procedure that can give you fuller, plumper lips. Lip implants are an option for patients looking for fuller lips, but dermal lip fillers can also be an option based on the individual’s aesthetic goals. Ask your surgeon which option would be right for you.

Lip Fillers

Lip Reduction in Santa Monica

Surgical lip reductions involve removing mucosal tissue from the upper and/or lower lips in order to reshape the entire lip area. This procedure is performed on patients who would like to decrease lip volume. Usually, it is performed on patients who have been bothered by their large lips since birth.

BOTOX AND FILLERS IN ENCINO

BOTOX® is a non-surgical cosmetic injectable used to smooth fine lines and “dynamic” wrinkles in the forehead by relaxing the movement of the facial muscles that cause the skin to wrinkle. The effects of having your BOTOX® treatment in Encino can last up to three months. The doctors at Eyesthetica Encino will help determine whether BOTOX® or other neurotoxins like Dysport®, Xeomin®, or Myobloc® are right for you.

Non-surgical dermal fillers are injected into the upper facial tissue to add volume to deflated tissue to reduce the appearance of fine lines and “static” wrinkles (wrinkles that remain even when the muscle is not moving). Fillers injected by an Oculofacial Surgeon are minimally invasive injections and results can last up to one year.

LASER SKIN RESURFACING IN ENCINO

Skin cells are constantly regenerating. As we age, tissue loss, pigmented age spots, sun damage, fine lines, and wrinkles develop. Laser skin resurfacing is a non-surgical procedure that speeds up the body’s own process of renewal by stimulating the skin’s natural healing response and collagen production. It treats age spots, pigment, fine lines, acne scars, and some birthmarks. It creates a beautiful, youthful complexion.

UPPER AND LOWER EYELIDS (ORBIT)

The thin, sensitive skin of the eyelid is typically the first area of the face to show signs of aging. Hanging skin and fatty bags can progressively create an exhausted appearance. Several treatments are available to enhance the appearance of your eyes. Dr. Samimi will meet with you at our Encino Oculofacial Surgery Office to determine the optimal treatment based upon your concerns, goals, age, ethnicity, and gender.

DROOPY EYELID REPAIR IN ENCINO

Ptosis refers to the drooping of the upper eyelids and is generally an age-related condition, although some individuals are born with what is called “congenital ptosis.” Ptosis is caused by the stretching of tissue and the disinsertion of the levator muscle tendon, which is responsible for raising the eyelids. In patients suffering with ptosis, the upper eyelids can sometimes droop enough to obstruct the pupil, causing a decrease in vision. Common symptoms of obstructed vision include difficulty reading, loss of superior field of vision, and headaches. The methods used for ptosis repair will vary based on the individual patient. Dr. Samimi will discuss with you in detail the extent of eyelid elevation needed and the right surgical approach to address the problem.

UPPER BLEPHAROPLASTY / EYELID LIFT IN ENCINO

An upper blepharoplasty is performed on the upper eyelid and is sometimes referred to as an eyelid lift. During a blepharoplasty, excess skin and fat are removed from the eyelid. Using our Healthy Blink Blepharoplasty™ approach, the orbicularis oculi muscle is preserved, maintaining natural eyelid closure and post-operative eye comfort. During an upper blepharoplasty, incisions are made in the natural crease of the eyelid, hiding the scar. Your Eyelid Surgeon removes the excess skin and fat that has collected on the upper eyelid. Encino Eyelid Lift patients who are candidates for both an upper and lower blepharoplasty generally opt to do both at once for the creation of a youthful, natural look and reduced recovery time.

DOUBLE EYELID SURGERY IN ENCINO

Double eyelid surgery is a special type of blepharoplasty popular with Encino patients that creates a crease in the upper eyelid where one was not present before. It is used in Asian patients who desire a more “open eye” and people who have lost their beautiful eyelid fold. This procedure is dependent on the thickness and fat distribution of the eyelids and can be performed with a minimal incision to avoid visible scarring.

Lower blepharoplasty is a minor surgical procedure that can provide major improvements in the appearance of puffiness and “bags” underneath the eyes. During the procedure, excess fat can be removed or repositioned through an incision hidden inside the eyelid, while loose skin can be tightened with an incision camouflaged beneath the eyelash line. The orbicularis muscle responsible for eyelid blinking is preserved — the hallmark of our Healthy Blink Blepharoplasty™ technique. Ask Dr. Samimi which approach is right for you!

FAT GRAFTING IN ENCINO

Fat grafting is the transfer of fat from one area of the body to another. Small pieces of fat can be used in the face to fill creases and wrinkles for a more youthful, vibrant appearance. Although its effects are similar to other injectable treatments, fat grafting is a longer-lasting solution that carries a lower risk of infection.

FAT REPOSITIONING IN ENCINO

Fat repositioning is when fat already present under the eyelids is meticulously mobilized to fill in the eyelid hollows beneath the bags. This procedure carries a lower risk of irregularities than traditional fat grafting, since fat is not grafted from other parts of the body – what is already there is simply being rearranged.
