Eyes are the first part of the body to show weariness and fatigue, due to their rigorous daily blinking regimen and constant vigilance in protecting the retinas from R-rated movies while the rest of the body sleeps. Show your tireless sentries some love with today's Groupon: for $1,499, you get upper-eyelid-reduction surgery for both eyes at Nova SurgiCare, PC in McLean, Virginia (a $3,800 value).
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.
"Facial surgery is much like making up a bed nicely," says Dr. Daria Hamrah on his website. "If the mattress is lumpy, there isn’t much point in spreading a nice bedcover over it (that is, if the bones and muscles are problematic, fixing the skin doesn’t help much)."
Dr. Hamrah, who is certified by the American Board of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, the American Academy of Cosmetic Surgery, and a licensed facial cosmetic surgeon, lets this philosophy guide him, focusing on both the face's surface and, more importantly, on the underlying structure that supports it as he reshapes noses, lifts brows, adds lip implants, or attaches third eyes. He further beautifies faces with oral surgical procedures and med-spa treatments, all performed within an office that evokes the tranquility of a spa with its warm brown walls and flower-lined hallways while still maintaining a hospital-quality operating room.
