Dr Dass describes what is blepharoplasty surgery
When the eyes look tired and patients notice drooping or bagginess around the eye area, they may benefit from plastic surgery. Dr. Dennis Dass, MD of the Beverly Hills area encourages those who are unhappy with the appearance of their eyelids to consider blepharoplasty.

Blepharoplasty is eyelid surgery that can be done for overall enhancement. It may be done in conjunction with a brow lift surgery or a facelift, depending on the specific needs of the patient. There are two types of blepharoplasty – upper blepharoplasty and lower blepharoplasty.

Upper Blepharoplasty

Upper blepharoplasty is also known as upper eyelid surgery. This procedure removes excess skin that may develop on the upper eyelid and cause patients to look tired. During this procedure, Dr. Dennis Dass, MD will create an incision and remove excess skin. This is done in an area of the eyelid that is inconspicuous. This procedure is done to open up the eyes and make patients look more alert.

Lower Blepharoplasty

Lower blepharoplasty is also known as lower eyelid surgery. During this procedure, Dr. Dennis Dass, MD will remove any excess skin and fat that may accumulate on the lower eyelid and underneath the eyes, resulting in bags. This is done to rejuvenate the eye area and can be performed in conjunction with an upper blepharoplasty.

Both upper and lower blepharoplasty may be completed under either local or general anesthetics, and some patients combine these procedures with others to reduce the cost and facilitate healing from all surgeries at the same time, greatly reducing the time needed off of work and other activities. A consultation appointment is the perfect time to discuss the advantages of having several procedures done at once for overall enhancement.

Dr. Dennis Dass, MD can consult with patients interested in eyelid surgery and discuss the options available to help them look more attractive, more youthful, and better rested. He is a board certified plastic surgeon in the Beverly Hills area who believes patients should have access to procedures that make them look and feel their absolute best. Contact his practice today to book an appointment and discuss the many possibilities available for enhancing the natural appearance and enjoying a more attractive 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.*
