Dr. George Salib offers several effective cosmetic procedures for his patients in Laguna Hills, CA.
Patients that suffer from a low, sagging brow which may hang laterally over their upper eyelid may be a good candidate for a brow lift, which is an endoscopic technique resulting in minimal scarring and recovery time performed under general anesthesia. A brow lift will remove the impression that you are tired, sad, and angry.
Defined as a drooping of the eyelid causing a partial covering of the pupil, ptosis causes a tired, sleepy appearance and can even reduce your vision. Ptosis repair is intended to provide not only a revived youthful appearance but will also increase your overall vision.
The difference between Botox and fillers can be a bit blurred but is quite simple. Botox involves the injecting of botulinum into areas where you may want to reduce the appearance of lines or wrinkles. A filler is a group of injectable products designed to add volume to desired tissues where lost volume needs to be replaced or where skin needs to be revitalized.
Kybella for Double Chin
Kybella is an FDA approved, nonsurgical injection technique that is utilized to eliminate excess fat underneath the chin. Each treatment takes anywhere from 15 to 20 minutes and uses a synthetic form of deoxycholic acid to target and eliminate fat cells. It is offered as an effective alternative to traditional surgical procedures such as liposuction.
Laser Lower Eye Bag Removal
Lower lid blepharoplasty is a procedure intended to improve the appearance of the undereye area by eliminating the saggy, baggy and wrinkled appearance many patients can experience. This cosmetic procedure helps correct loose skin, excess fat and wrinkles through the removal of excess skin and fat and tightening the skin underneath the eye. It does require an incision, so anesthesia is required.
An eyelid lesion is a change in the tissue of the eyelid, many of which are benign and harmless. However, some lesions can be malignant or cancerous. An eyelid lesion can be pigmented or colored and appear as small bumps on the eyelid. In many cases, they do not need to be treated but, in cases when treatment is necessary, it can be surgically removed for either cosmetic reasons or due to an interference in vision. A lesion can be surgically removed and will normally be sent in for biopsy. During a surgical excision, little to no discomfort is experienced.
Droopy Eyelid Repair
Blepharoplasty is a form of surgery which is meant to repair a droopy eyelid and can involve the removal of excess skin, muscle or fat. As a patient ages the eyelid can stretch, causing the supporting muscles to weaken resulting in a gathering of fat below the eyelid. This accumulation can cause a droopy eyelid. During the repair procedure, a small incision is made to remove the unwanted skin, muscle and/or fat. This will allow a tightening of the eyelid and a removal of the droopy look.
Tear Duct Irrigation
When you experience a blocked tear duct, your tears cannot drain normally. This results in a watery and often irritated eye. A blocked tear duct can occur at any point in the tear drainage system, anywhere from the puncta to your nose. When a tear duct obstruction is expected, we will flush your eye as a test of the drainage system to first diagnose the level of blockage. Once the problem has been diagnosed, irrigation will occur which consists of inserting an irrigation instrument into your puncta and then flushing a saline solution to remove any obstructions.
Chalazions is a bump, often painless, that occurs on the eyelid. They are most common on patients between the ages of 30 and 50 and may not require any treatment. A hot compress may help with some while others may need to be removed by our doctors.
