New and Innovative Eyelid Surgical Procedure

Posted by admin

MassryBeverly Hills, CA, January 15, 2013 - Dr. Guy Massry, MD (Beverly Hills cosmetic eyelid surgery) has developed a new and innovative surgical procedure to improve and smooth the transition of the brow to the upper lid (reduce depressions) after upper blepharoplasty surgery. The procedure is similar to repositioning fat in lower lid blepharoplasty (a now well accepted surgery). Dr. Massry has described and presented the procedure at last year’s fall meeting of the American Society of Ophthalmic Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery (ASOPRS www.asoprs.org) in Chicago, Illinois. The presentation was very well accepted. Dr. Massry has now written the manuscript on the procedure which has been accepted for publication after peer review in an upcoming issue of Ophthalmic Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery (OPRS). The manuscript is titled “Effacing the Orbitoglabellar Groove with Transposed Upper Eyelid Fat.”

This is the second in a series of publications by Dr. Massry on preserving and repositioning upper eyelid fat during blepharoplasty surgery. The first manuscript was published in 2011 and is cited below
Massry GG. Nasal fat preservation in upper blepharoplasty. Ophth Plast Recosntr Surg 2011;27(5):352-355.

The importance of this innovation is that it allows cosmetic upper blepharoplasty without leading to eyelid depressions (hollows). This is a big step forward in upper blepharoplasty surgery.

Dr. Massry practices cosmetic eyelid surgery in Beverly Hills, California. He is very dedicated to clinical research and teaching, and is a sought after speaker at scientific meetings, publishes in his area of expertise often, and is a fellowship preceptor for training facial plastic surgeons. He has expertise in both primary (first time) and revisional (redo) brow lift surgery, blepharoplasty surger , mid face lift surgery, facial and eyelid fat grafting and the use of Botox and fillers (Restylane, Juvederm, Belotero, etc.). Dr. Massry can be reached at his office at (310) 657-4302 or through his web site at http://www.drmassry,com

Eyelid surgery is a general term for any surgery on the upper or lower eyelids.  When performed to improve appearance or field of vision, eyelid lifts are referred to specifically as blepharoplasty surgery.  Blepharoplasty surgery is one of the most common facial surgical procedures performed today in the United States and the world in general.   Eyelid lifts involve the removal of variable amounts of skin/muscle and fat from the eyelids.  This allows the lids to be more open, less prominent and more youthful.

Eyelid lifts can be covered by insurance if there is sufficient impairment of field of vision.  This applies only to the upper lids.  Lower eyelid lifts are always cosmetic in nature, and as such, are a fee for service procedure for the patient.

There are numerous types of surgeons who perform eyelid lift surgery.  These surgeons include general plastic surgeons, facial plastic surgeons and oculoplastic surgeons.  General plastic surgeons operate on the body head to toe, facial plastic surgeons on the face only, and oculoplastic surgeons on the eyelids only.  Without a doubt oculoplastic surgeons are the most experienced and well trained eyelid surgeons in the world.  Only an oculoplastic surgeon should perform your eyelid lift surgery.  This will allow the greatest chance for success with surgery.

Eyelid Bag Surgery – A Specialist is the Best Way to Go

Posted by admin

Eyelid bags are one of the most common reasons a person seeks cosmetic surgical improvement.  Eyelid bags make a person look tired and worn out. So, it makes sense that a patient would want this corrected.  The problem is that many cosmetic surgeons perform this surgery.  However, only a few are really trained for the job.

An ophthalmic plastic surgeon (oculoplastic surgeon) is a board certified ophthalmologist (eye doctor) who then continued on in specific training in plastic surgery of the eyelids (oculoplastic surgery).  There are roughly 550 of this kind of specialists in the USA today.  As you can see it is a specialized field with very few members.  The organization which certifies oculoplastic surgeons is the American Society of Ophthalmic Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery (ASOPRS). The surgeons accredited by ASOPRS are the best doctors to perform any eyelid surgery – especially cosmetic surgery such as that for eyelid bags.  Why?  Because they are the best trained, most experienced and most knowledgeable about the eyes – the area around which surgery focuses.  Eyes are our most important sense and facial feature – protect them at all costs.

Below is an example of before (left) and after (right) surgery results for eyelid bag surgery.
