The eyes have a tremendous impact on appearance. Unfortunately, eyes are often the first place to show signs of aging. Skin around the eyes is half as thick as the rest of the facial skin, has fewer oil glands, and weaker internal support. The anatomic differences combine with heredity, sun damage, stress, fatigue, and a lot of exercise to make the eyes “the first to go”. That is why range of people, young and old, men & women, can benefit from eyelid surgery. The procedure can remove bags, pouches, and excess skin from under and over the eyes. It is sometimes accompanied by a eyebrow lift to lessen forehead wrinkles and creases, and raise sagging, eyebrows.
Eyelid surgery usually takes 1-2 hours. Through incisions made along natural skin creases, the surgeon removes excess skin (which causes the wrinkles) and unwanted fat (which causes the heaviness).
After surgery, any soreness is controlled by medication and cold compresses limit swelling and bruising. Occasionally, patients may experience excessive tearing or light sensitivity. This usually responds to eye drops and does not last long. Most patients are up and around in a day or two and back to work in 7 to 10 days.

Rhinoplasty (Nose Surgery)
There is no single “perfect” “designer” nose. Cosmetic nasal surgery simply brings the nose into harmony with the rest of the face. This can be accomplished by reducing overall size, removing a bump, narrowing or widening the sides of the nose, or improving the details of the nasal tip and the angle between the nose and upper lip. Unbalanced, crooked, or curved noses can be straightened and made more symmetrical.
Working either from entirely inside the nose or with small incision underneath the nose just before it meets the upper lip, the surgeon carefully modifies and reshapes the bones and cartilages. Rhinoplasty usually takes between 1-3 hours. After surgery a cast is a placed to maintain the new shape and protect the nose. Splints may be placed inside the nose for support. Patients are up and around in a day or 2 and any discomfort is controlled by medication. Head elevation and cold compresses on the eyes can minimize swelling and bruising. The splints and cast are removed within a week. Most bruising fades within 7-10 days, allowing an inconspicuous return to work. There will be subtle swelling of the nose which recedes slowly; the full benefits become evident over time.
Revision Rhinoplasty – When a Rhinoplasty is done on a patient that has previously had nasal surgery and for some reason is unhappy with results. These cases are usually much more involved because of extensive scarring from previous surgery and can take much longer to complete between 3-5hrs at times. They may also require cartilage and tissue grafts to restore function or attain desire appearance of nose.
Functional Rhinoplasty– Restoring the proper function of the nose by treating Nasal Valve collapse or vestibular stenosis of the nose allowing for improved breathing and function.
