Moderate Downtime Procedures
Procedures such as blepharoplasty (eyelid lift), fat grafting, and neck liposuction can have dramatic results with a moderate recovery time.
Blepharoplasty (Eyelid Surgery)
Blepharoplasty, or eyelid lift surgery, transforms the appearance of tired, droopy-looking eyes through the reduction of excess skin and fat pockets around the eyes. During blepharoplasty, Dr. Goldberg may also lift the skin and tighten the muscles around the eyes. Both upper and lower eyelid surgery can be performed at the same time. This relatively quick surgery produces dramatic results with little discomfort and moderate recovery time. Patients are typically able to return to their normal routine within two weeks.
Blepharoplasty can be combined with non-surgical procedures such as chemical peels and skin resurfacing to enhance the texture of the skin around the eye area.
Fat grafting, also called fat transfer, uses living morsels of fat taken from another part of the body to fill facial wrinkles, enhance contours, and plump up the lips. Dr. Goldberg will use liposuction to extract the fat, typically in abdominal area, and then inject it into the targeted areas of the face. Results often last for several years.
Liposuction of the neck area can slim the neck and chin and refine the jaw for a more contoured profile. The procedure is similar to liposuction performed on other parts of the body in that excess fat is removed using a small tube. Neck liposuction is intended to reduce the appearance of large jowls or a double chin and can result in a more youthful appearance. Patients typically recover within a week.
