Dr. Zoumalan safely performs the latest in laser technology to help remove fine lines and deep wrinkles around the eyelid and face while striving to minimize postoperative swelling and pain. There are various lases platforms available on the market for laser resurfacing, and Dr. Zoumalan uses the latest and safest platform. It is a fractionated laser (ActiveFX, Lumenis Aesthetic) which is ideal for the treatment of fine lines, uneven texture, dyschromia and actinic keratosis. Collimated, non-sequential scanning delivers high effect, low-downtime, single pass laser skin resurfacing. This can contribute to a faster recovery and decrease redness and discomfort.
Dr. Zoumalan often employs laser resurfacing in his aesthetic eyelid blepharoplasties. The herniated fat pockets can often be removed by a transconjunctival blepharoplasty (hidden incision) and laser resurfacing can address the fine wrinkles. By combining both modalities, Dr. Zoumalan can help minimize downtime and the incidence of complications.
This 62-year-old female had excess skin and fat pockets in her upper and lower lids, and wished for cosmetic eyelid surgery. She underwent an upper and lower lid blepharoplasty, where excess skin was removed in the upper lids. Excess fat pockets were removed in the lower lids using a minimally invasive technique. In order to help soften the wrinkles in her lower lid and to tighten her skin, a lower lid chemical peel was also performed (trichloroacetic acid).
Preoperative diagnosis: Bilateral upper and lower lid aging changes.
Procedure performed: Bilateral upper and lower lid blepharoplasty, chemical peel to lower lids.
This 65-year-old female underwent upper and lower lid cosmetic surgery to remove her excess skin and fat pockets. In order to improve the wrinkles in her lower lid, she underwent a chemical peel. Trichloroacetic acid (TCA 30%) was applied to her lower lids at the same time of surgery, and she had a great improvement in the appearance of her lower lid skin.
Preoperative Diagnosis: Bilateral upper and lower lid excess skin, lower lid aging changes with excess fat pockets
Procedure performed: Bilateral upper lid ptosis repair (blepharoplasty), lower lid blepharoplasty with fat repositioning, chemical peel to lower lids
