Certified by the American Board of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery and the American Academy of Cosmetic Surgery, Dr. Daria Hamrah helps patients look their refreshed best with blepharoplasty, an upper-eyelid surgery. Candidates meet with the doctor during an initial consultation to discuss surgical goals and weigh the potential benefits of blepharoplasty, since some candidates could achieve their desired outcome with liposuction or simply sticking eyelids back with thin strips of silly putty. Candidates who qualify for the brief surgery may take advantage of optional local anesthesia for two hours while he makes tiny incisions in the crevasses of the upper eyelids, where any scarring can hide undetected.
The procedure can improve the appearance of the upper eyelids by tightening muscles, removing unwanted skin, and ridding patients of unwanted fat deposits. Patients should arrange for transportation to and from the surgical site, as anesthesia will render a car difficult to locate. After a recovery period of swelling and bruising that can last for up to a few weeks, patients enjoy the aesthetic benefits of improved facial-muscle balance, corrected loose or sagging skin, and a reduction in puffiness.
Dr. Hamrah, who is certified by the American Board of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery and the American Academy of Cosmetic Surgery, has a philosophy that extends beyond focusing on merely the face's surface. He extends his treatments to the underlying structure that supports the face as he artfully reshapes noses, lifts brows, and rejuvenates faces. He further beautifies faces with oral surgical procedures and med-spa treatments, all performed within a tranquil, spa-like setting and on-site surgical suites.
