Educate Yourself Before Having Cosmetic Eyelid Surgery (Blepharoplasty )

Posted by admin

Blepharoplasty surgery is a unique form of specialized facial cosmetic surgery which addressed the aged eyelids.  This includes both the extra (hanging) skin of the upper eyelids, and the puffy and prominent bags of the lower eyelids.

The surgery to correct these issues is called blepharoplasty surgery.  Blepharoplasty surgery can be performed while awake, under local anesthesia injections only, sedated or asleep (under general anesthesia).  Blepharoplasty surgery is so specialized that there is a group of cosmetic physicians who only specialize in this area.  This specialty is called ophthalmic plastic surgery.  The organization which trains oculoplastic surgeons is called the American Society of Ophthalmic Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery (ASOPRS). Please open this ink to find out more about ASOPRS http://asoprs.org.

Dr. Guy Massry, Beverly Hills blepharoplasty specialist is an ASOPRS member who performs hundreds of both upper and lower blepharoplasty surgeries every year.   He has particular expertise in revising surgery after poor outcomes http://www.realself.com/find/California/Los-Angeles/Oculoplastic-Surgeon/Guy-Massry ,http://www.vitals.com/doctors/Dr_Guy_Massry#reviews , http://www.ratemds.com/doctor-ratings/170637/Dr-Guy-Massry-Beverly+Hills-CA.html .  Dr. Massry’s only goal to provide an honest appraisal of what can be achieved with your blepharoplasty surgery so that you can have a realistic expectation of outcome

Bell’s palsy – Why can’t I close my eyes?

Posted by admin

Bell’s palsy is a form of facial paralysis which can lead to the loss of the ability to close your eyes.  The Upper eyelid has muscles which open the eyes (levator muscle and Muller’s muscle) and a muscle which closes the eyes (orbicularis oculi muscle).  When the elevator muscles become weak or mal-functions what results is a droopy lid referred to as ptosis.  The orbicularis muscle is supplied by the 7th Cranial nerve also called the facial nerve.  In Bell’s palsy and other forms of facial paralysis this nerve is damaged and leads to weakness of eyelid closure.  As the closing of the lids is reduced, the patient experiences dry eyes, red eyes, eye irritation, possible infections and potentially loss of vision.  For this reason it is critical to see an eyelid specialist who performs eyelid reconstructive surgery – or an oculoplastic surgeon.

The eyes are one of our most important organs as they control vision our most important sensory function.  In addition the appearance of the eyes and eyelids is vital to how we present ourselves to society and for our self-esteem.  We must do all we can to attain the best visual function and appearance after suffering from Bell’s palsy or other forms of facial paralysis.

Eyelid Filler Injections with the Microcannula

Posted by admin

Eyelid bags and depressions can be treated non-surgically with filler.  Around the eyelids Dr. Massry (Beverly Hills Ophthalmic Plastic Surgery) prefers to use Restylane as his filler of choice. Traditionally, eyelid filler (Restylane) has been injected around the eyes with needles.  While the results have been good, there is often significant bruising and swelling associated with the treatment.

Recently, blunt-tipped microcannulas have been developed for injection of filler to any area of the face.  While these have taken hold, few injectors have been comfortable with injections around the eyes.  Dr. Guy Massry, an experienced eyelid filler injector has transitioned almost all his eyelid filler injections to the use of the microcannula.  Dr. Massry prefers this method, as it is safer (no chance of injecting into a blood vessel), more comfortable (not painful), easier to perform, and yields minimal to no bruising and swelling.

Below is an example of a woman who had Restylane eyelid filler injected to the hollows under the lower lids to improve appearance.  On the right are her immediate post-injection photos.  Note that there is slight redness (gone in 30 minutes) and no bruising and swelling
