Welcome to Maan Plastic Surgery in Los Gatos, where we specialize in periorbital rejuvenation, a transformative procedure that revitalizes the upper eyelids, lower eyelids, and the surrounding structures. Dr. Z offers comprehensive surgery that includes upper and lower blepharoplasty, canthopexy, and fat grafting, all aimed at achieving natural, refreshed results.
A Total Rejuvenation of the Periorbital Region
Periorbital rejuvenation is a comprehensive approach to enhancing the appearance of the regions around the eyes, i.e., the periorbital area. This comprehensive procedure includes upper blepharoplasty, lower blepharoplasty with fat reduction or pinch blepharoplasty, lateral canthopexy, and strategic fat grafting to harmonize the lid and cheek junction. By addressing multiple aspects of the periorbital area, we make your eyes look alert and revitalized.
Periorbital Rejuvenation Corrects:
- Drooping or sagging upper eyelids
- Puffy bags and excess skin under the eyes
- Hollow or sunken appearance around the eyes
- Creases, wrinkles, and fine lines in the eye area
- Uneven or asymmetrical eyelid contours
- Loose or lax lower eyelid muscles
- Prominent tear troughs or dark circles
- Disproportionate eyelid-cheek junction
- Overall signs of aging and fatigue in the periorbital region
Upper blepharoplasty rejuvenates the upper eyelids. It involves the removal of excess skin, muscle, and fat from the upper eyelid area. The surgery begins with incisions made along the natural creases of the upper eyelids, ensuring minimal scarring. Excess tissue is carefully excised, and the remaining skin is repositioned for a more youthful appearance. Upper blepharoplasty can address drooping eyelids and improve vision obstruction.
Fat Reduction Technique
Fat reduction during lower blepharoplasty involves the strategic removal or repositioning of excess fat deposits that accumulate beneath the eyes. Dr. Z makes subtle incisions on the inside of the lower eyelid (transconjunctival) to access and address the fat pockets. Once accessed, the surgeon can redistribute or excise the excess fat, smoothing out the under-eye contours for a more youthful and refreshed look.
Pinch blepharoplasty is a variation of lower blepharoplasty to correct excess, crepey skin of the lower eyelid without causing the complications associated with the traditional skin/muscle flap approach. In this procedure, a complement to transconjunctival fat reduction, Dr. Z “pinches” the excess skin below the lash line before excising it and closing the incision. Dr Z harnesses this powerful technique, learned from Lorne Rosenfield, a pioneer and major proponent of pinch blepharoplasty, to provide subtle yet significant improvements in under-eye appearance.
Lateral canthopexy is a surgical technique to address sagging or laxity in the outer corners of the eyes, known as the lateral canthal area. Dr. Z makes small incisions at the outer corners of the eyes. Through these incisions, he can access and tighten the canthal tendon, securing it in a more elevated position. This procedure effectively lifts the outer corners of the eyes, reducing the appearance of sagging and restoring a more alert and rejuvenated look.
