Cosmetic Eye Procedures
At Beach Eye Medical Group we understand that looking and feeling your best go hand-in-hand. We offer a range of cosmetic eye treatments at our Huntington Beach and Irvine offices and have been serving patients in Southern California for over 35 years. During this time, we have honed our ability to create patient-based solutions on an individual level.
The following is a list of some of our most popular cosmetic eye procedures. If you would like more detailed information, we encourage you to schedule an appointment to discuss which of these procedures, or combination of procedures, can benefit you the most.
As our bodies naturally age, the skin above our eyebrows can become saggy and droopy. This can make your eyes appear smaller and can give off the vibe that you are unhappy or angry. A brow lift by one of the board-certified physicians at Beach Eye will restore your youthful glow by removing excess skin above the brow and re-sculpting it in a smoother, more defined way. A cosmetic brow lift can also reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles that have developed in the area.
Functional Eyelid Surgery
Like a brow lift, upper or lower eyelid surgery can restore youthfulness to a person’s appearance by treating loose or saggy skin above the eyes and/or bags under the eyes. Drooping eyelids and hollowed out eyes can cause a person to look tired and older. It can also distract onlookers from other features of the face. To treat this condition, the highly trained licensed professionals at Beach Eye may recommend a blepharoplasty or eyelid surgery. You can rest assured that your eyelid surgery at Beach Eye will be minimally invasive and that our doctors will maintain your cosmetic interests as a top priority, positioning any incisions so as to best hide scarring and promote healing.
Blocked Tear Ducts
Blocked tear ducts, or nasolacrimal duct obstruction, can cause a patient to produce and release excess tears. The fix is relatively easy. Through tear duct surgery, a hole is created within the nose to re-direct tears in adults. Tear duct surgery takes about one hour to perform and has positive implications for a lifetime. Meanwhile, if the problem is discovered early enough in children, the need for surgery may be completely eliminated. In that case, the doctors at Beach Eye may recommend a stent to be placed in the tear duct to re-direct the excess tears.
Though not a serious medical condition, dry eye can be irritating and can be the cause of extreme discomfort. Whether you wear contacts or have 20/20 vision, dry eye can be caused by a lack of lubrication to the eyes and can often be a chronic problem that requires professional attention to be fully resolve. The doctors at Beach Eye will assess your condition and, depending on the severity of the problem, may prescribe special eye drops or recommend an amniotic membrane be placed on the surface of the eye.
An orbital fracture is caused by trauma to the bone surrounding the eye socket. Aside from pain, discomfort, and sensitivity in the region, orbital fractures may cause blurry or double vision, swelling under or around the eyes and face, or create the appearance of sunken or bulging eyeballs. Minimal fractures may heal on their own with the guidance of a professional, while more severe fractures may require surgery to create a permanent solution. If surgery is needed, the incision can be placed on the inside of the eyelid so as to prevent visible scarring.
