Facial Cosmetic Surgery By Dr. Sean Doherty
A face is the first thing people see when they meet you. Dr. Sean Doherty offers such plastic surgery procedures as facelift, and brow lift, all designed to give a patient a youthful, proportionate face.
Facelift To Improve Neck Contour
Patients who have a droopy chin and neck due to the presence of excess skin may wish to undergo a combined neck and facelift. Through a single surgical procedure, Boston plastic surgeon Sean Doherty can achieve dramatic improvements in neck contour, jaw line definition, and facial firmness.
Eyelid Surgery (Blepharoplasty)
Because they are the natural focal point of your face, your eyes are considered the best representation of you and your personality. As you age, sagging upper eyelids and baggy lower lids can make you appear tired, sad, and older than your true age. For some people, excess skin can even impair vision. Eyelid surgery, or blepharoplasty, is a surgical procedure designed to lift droopy eyelids and remove excess skin around the eyes, resulting in eyes that look fresh, well-rested, and alert.
The Eyelid Surgery Procedure
Dr. Doherty will examine your eyes in a consultation prior to your surgery to determine the extent of surgery needed and the best technique to use.
Upper eyelids are treated through an incision that is made in the natural crease above the eye. Dr. Doherty removes the excess skin and fatty tissue before closing the incision. Since the incision is located inconspicuously, the scar is very hard to detect once healed.
If you need your lower eyelids corrected, Dr. Doherty will make an incision just below the lower eyelashes. Special adjustments may also be made at this point. For example, the fat beneath the eye can be redistributed to eliminate puffiness, bulges, or to improve the semicircular hollowing seen beneath the eye; in some patients, the underlying muscle will be tightened.
Dr. Doherty may decide that the best approach for removing fat from the lower eyelid is with a transconjunctival blepharoplasty. In this procedure, an incision is placed inside the lower eyelid. This technique requires no external incisions, but it cannot be used to remove excess skin. Patients may elect to have their eyelid surgery combined with a facelift or brow lift to maximize the rejuvenating effect.
