Type 1 and Type 2 Eyelids

Type 1 and Type 2 Eyelids One of my colleagues came up with the distinction between two types of youthful eyelids.  Type 1 is a very full upper eyelid that hangs almost over the eyeball itself (not quite).  Type 2 eyelid is an eyelid that is much hollower but at the same time still distinguishes […]

Breaking the Brow into Subunits: Designing a Brow for Cosmetic Improvement

Breaking the Brow into Subunits: Designing a Brow for Cosmetic Improvement In a previous blog we discussed why low, full brows are sexy, youthful and attractive. In this blog, we will delve into the exact subcomponents of a brow that need to be filled to achieve that look.  I break the brow into multiple points depending […]

OVA, my new Skin Care Line

OVA, my new Skin Care Line I launched my new skin care line earlier this year entitled, OVA; and it has been nothing short of revolutionary both for my patients and for those who have purchased it elsewhere.  I had some cast members of True Blood who heard about this miracle product and have been […]

Botox: Understanding Balance

Botox: Understanding Balance One of the most common things that I hear when I am working on a new patient for Botox is either “Don’t give me those Spock eyes” or “Don’t make me look too frozen.”  Although Botox has become one of the most commoditized items in the cosmetic world, I believe that by delivering […]

When Do I Do an Upper-Eyelid Blepharoplasty and How?

When Do I Do an Upper-Eyelid Blepharoplasty and How? But should we always just add fillers or fat to the upper frame of the eyelid and never remove any tissues?  The answer is no.  If the eyelid skin is above the eyelash margin, I rarely if ever remove skin.  Filling fat or fillers into the […]

When Do I Do a Lower-Eyelid Blepharoplasty and How?

Managing the Aging Asian Eyelid

One of the most confusing things that I have encountered is how to manage the aging Asian eyelid.  The reason for this is twofold.  First, if an Asian is born without an upper-eyelid crease where do you make the incision so that you don’t have a visible scar?  Second, when you remove skin from the […]

Cut-off Nostrils Following a Nose Job (Rhinoplasty)

Cut-off Nostrils Following a Nose Job (Rhinoplasty) One of the ugliest things that I see with a traditional rhinoplasty, or traditional nose job, are cut-off nostrils.  A nostril should naturally taper and curve onto the face with a shelf like portion on the upper lip known as the nasal sill, like a window sill.  When […]

Why 3 Syringes of Fillers Can Look Overfilled and Why 30 May Not

Recently, I had a lady who at the age of 57 started modeling for the first time in her life thanks in large part to the syringes I have put into her face to make her look better.  Her new boyfriend remarked that she looked better than she had when he saw her 7 years […]

Plastic Surgery Stories: Improving One’s Blink Effect

I love stories because in a story I am able to convey a lot and make it memorable for a person.  I remember a couple of stories that involved the Transport Security Authority (TSA) at the airport.  I had one lady in whom I had done many facial fillers to make her face look a […]
