Real Patient Results



Our Approach

Our surgeons understand that the interplay between your features is what creates your unique appearance. At our practice near Palm Springs, we tailor each rhinoplasty to the patient after carefully considering the entire composition of the face.

Your other facial features often determine the need for and extent of rhinoplasty. For example, your chin and cheekbones form a distinct ratio with the height, width and projection of your nose. Even small changes in the bridge or tip can match your nose to these other features so none stands out too prominently. Rhinoplasty can also correct the angle between your nose and your forehead or your upper lip.

Your Choices

What can be done about puffiness or hollowness under the eyes?

Chronic under eye puffiness is often the result of genetic factors and cannot be corrected through the use of creams or cosmetic products. In these situations, lower eyelid surgery is generally performed to permanently reduce the look of under eye bags.

Eyes that appear "sunken" or hollow are frequently the result of facial volume loss, which occurs with aging or weight loss. A fat transfer can help to restore fullness to the under eye area for a more youthful appearance and may even reduce dark circles in some cases.

How can I improve the look of forehead creases?

Sometimes, our doctors perform a variation on brow lift surgery that elevates the brows 45 degrees, thereby widening the distance between the brows, restoring the brow arch, and minimizing creases between the eyebrows and on the forehead.

Will my insurance cover eyelid surgery?

Some people may experience vision problems due to "hooding" of the upper eyelid. Cosmetic Surgery Institute can help correct this problem by removing excess skin and tissue and then tightening the upper eyelid to create a firmer contour. After eyelid surgery, our patients often experience a better range of vision with less obstruction. They comment on their improved night vision and driving skills, overall decrease in tension headaches, and increased energy levels, all secondary to de-bulking of the upper eyelids. The good news is that eyelid surgery for patients with functional concerns specified in a visual field exam from an optometrist will, in most circumstances, be paid for at least partially by health insurance plans.

If I'm not ready for surgery, what nonsurgical options are available?

Cosmetic Surgery Institute also offers several injectable treatments to rejuvenate your appearance without surgery, including BOTOX® Cosmetic, facial fillers, and laser skin resurfacing. These treatments are also effective after your surgery and can help maintain or improve your results.

Our Doctors

What to Expect

General anesthesia is most often used during eyelid surgery for your comfort. Your surgeon will first mark the area to be treated so as to minimize the appearance of scars. Then, small incisions are made in the upper or lower eyelids (usually along the lash line) and excess skin, fat, and tissue is removed. If a fat transfer is being performed, your surgeon will place the fat graft into the appropriate location for added volume.

Tiny bandages may be applied to the eye area after surgery to promote healing. Your surgeon may recommend antibiotic eye drops for up to a week and a half after surgery and may also provide an ointment to prevent eye dryness. Usually, most people can return to their day-to-day activities within a few days. Moderate bruising and swelling will begin to fade over the next 2 weeks.

Enhancing Your Look

Eyelid surgery is often complemented by nonsurgical treatments like BOTOX Cosmetic and injectable fillers. For full facial rejuvenation, a facelift can also refresh a tired appearance and provide additional benefits.
