patients expect from eyelid surgery
Lower eyelid bags and puffiness trouble many people. These lower eyelid bags make you look tired, even if you are well rested. The process usually starts in the mid 30s and gets worse with age. Eyelid surgery alone can make a person look several years younger.

Blepharoplasty, also known as cosmetic eyelid surgery or lower eyelid lift, is a fantastic way to rejuvenate your eyes. Removing the extra fat from the lower eyelid improves the puffiness and makes you look more rested and youthful. Removing the extra skin of the lower eyelid will reduce the wrinkles and make the eyelid look smoother. In some cases, the lower eyelid will need to be tightened to further improve the eyelid. The goal is to blend the lower eyelid and upper cheek junction, to create a smoother appearance.

Lower eyelid lift in Beverly Hills is performed as an outpatient surgery. The scar is well hidden along the lash line. So, after it is healed, nobody will even know that you had a surgery. The recovery is rather quick. There is minimal post-operative pain. The swelling and bruising usually subside after about a week. Basic makeup, foundation, and concealer can be applied within a few days, and eyeliner can be used in two weeks.

Lower eyelid surgery can be combined with upper eyelid surgery and a brow lift for a complete upper face rejuvenation. A midface lift can be performed at the same time without creating any additional scars. A face and neck lift can also be combined with an eyelid lift for a full-face rejuvenation, and creation of a balanced look.

    I have hated my tattoo for years and wanted to get it removed. After a painful experience with a local laser center, I sought out a different provider and found Dr. Dass. He uses the PicoSure laser instead of the traditional Q-switched laser. My first session with him was painless from beginning to end. He numbed the entire area! His staff are caring and warm. I am so lucky I found Dr. Dass!*

    So…I was in Los Angeles for a conference this summer and realized that I needed liposuction because I’ve been too busy with work. I decided to have it done while I was out there since Beverly Hills is the plastic surgery capital of the world. I had a consult and immediately booked Smartlipo on my belly and love handles. It was perfect because I had the weekend to recover before flying back home. Its like night and day, I’ve gone down like 4 inches on my waist and the love handles are completely gone. Two thumbs up, way up.*

    I had to write a review for Dr Dass, because I absolutely love the results from my breast augmentation . He spent time with me and I didn’t feel rushed. Went with the Sientra implants for my piece of mind. The recovery was not as bad as I thought it was going to be, and he saw me for all of my follow-ups. I highly recommend seeing him.*
