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 […]

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?

When Do I Do a Lower-Eyelid Blepharoplasty and How? Like the upper eyelid, I find myself performing many more fat transfers to correct the aging process than traditional eyelid surgery.  Further, if I perform a traditional lower-eyelid procedure I will almost always use some fat transferred to improve the result.  In fact, I look at […]

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 […]

High or Low Brows?: What is Sexier for Men and for Women?

High or Low Brows?:  What is Sexier for Men and for Women?

Why Asian Eyelids Can be More Easily Made Symmetrical

Why Asian Eyelids Can be More Easily Made Symmetrical Symmetry is perhaps the hardest thing for me to fix.  I can improve one’s asymmetry but I can’t fix it.  In fact, in all my consent forms I state “the two sides of the body are not the same and can never be made the same,” […]

My Thoughts on Medial and Lateral Canthoplasty for Asian Blepharoplasty

My Thoughts on Medial and Lateral Canthoplasty for Asian Blepharoplasty Besides creating a supratarsal crease in the upper eyelid for Asian blepharoplasty, there are two other modifications of the eyelid shape that can be performed, namely a medial and/or lateral epicanthoplasty.  The canthus describes the joining of the upper and lower eyelids so the medial […]

Understanding the Brow as a Balloon: The Role of Fat Grafting to the Brow

Understanding the Brow as a Balloon:  The Role of Fat Grafting to the Brow One of the most confusing things that I do is to inflate a brow/upper eyelid with fat or filler when someone instinctively thinks that her brow is already too heavy and sagging.  If someone really does not get it, all I […]

Kenny Rogers and Bad Blepharoplasty and Browlift Surgery

Kenny Rogers and Bad Blepharoplasty and Browlift Surgery Obviously, there is quite a bit of brouhaha about Kenny Rogers’ facial work. His alien appearance has clearly become the poster child for bad facial plastic surgery. If you are wondering what I see as far as his bad work is concerned, I can break it down […]

Avoiding Bad Eyelid Surgery: Preserve the Canthus At All Costs

Avoiding Bad Eyelid Surgery: Preserve the Canthus At All Costs I oftentimes hear a patient come to me to say, “I don’t want to look like celebrity…” who has had too much surgery done or a friend that has been subject to similar bad work.  If the surgery has to do with the eyes, there […]
