The Eyes Have It: Proper Technique is Crucial in Eyelid Surgery

According to the history books, the earliest documented cosmetic eyelid surgery dates back to the first century A.D.  Of course eyelid surgery techniques have come a long way since ancient times, and today’s advanced, precise techniques are producing outstanding results for eyelid surgery patients in New Jersey and New York.  Meticulous attention to detail and exacting technique are especially important for lower eyelift procedures because the anatomy of the lower eyelid is more complex than that of the upper eyelids, according to Dr. Mokhtar Asaadi, an accomplished cosmetic surgeon with offices in NJ and NYC.  The lower eyelids have three fat compartments, and it’s critical for your lower eyelift surgeon to know how much fat to remove, how much to preserve and how much to relocate within each of the fat compartments. If not enough fat is removed, there may be bulging and puffiness present.  If too much fat is removed, a hollowed look may result. 

When Dr. Asaadi performs lower eyelift surgery for patients in New York and New Jersey, he uses specialized techniques to produce the best results.  “It’s important that correction be customized for each patient’s specific needs,” Dr. Asaadi says.  Dr. Asaadi uses a special test he developed called the Lateral Pull Test to determine how to make the best corrections.  The Canthopexy technique tightens and stabilizes the deep layer behind the septal structures in the lower eyelids.  What’s more, a special procedure called a Septal Reset can help preserve the patient’s own fat, resetting the fat into a more youthful position, thus eliminating puffiness and bagginess, while avoiding a hollowed look.  The final result is a smooth and natural-looking transition between the lower eyelid and the cheekbone. 

Dr. Asaadi reminds patients, “When it comes to lower eyelift surgery, small details matter.  You must be meticulous and make the right adjustments in order to achieve great, natural looking results.”

Setting the Record Straight on New York Facelifts

POSTED ON THURSDAY, AUGUST 19, 2010 AT 6:08 PM by Dr. Mokhtar Asaadi

Many people in New York and New Jersey have heard about so-called “miracle” facelift procedures that promise outstanding results in under an hour.  Unfortunately, there are no miracle shortcuts for a proper facelift.  In fact, NY and NJ patients looking for a “magic bullet” facelift may just wind up shooting themselves in the foot.  That’s because, once the swelling goes down, many people are disappointed in the results, finding that they look no younger than they did before the procedure.  In order to get real results, a face lift has to entail more than just skin tightening, according to leading NY and NJ plastic surgeon, Dr. Mokhtar Asaadi

Dr. Asaadi says, “You must make changes to the underlying structures of the face, including facial fat and facial muscles, in order to get noticeable and lasting results.”  While cosmetic injectables and laser resurfacing can temporarily improve some of the signs of aging, there’s no substitute for a traditional facelift.  A facelift can correct many of the effects of aging and gravity, including loose skin, excess fatty deposits, and sagging muscle structure, with results that may last as long as 10 years. 

Facelift is a significant surgery that should be performed by a qualified and experienced physician in a safe environment under proper anesthesia.  Dr. Asaadi cautions patients that there are no “miracle cures” that can erase the signs of aging in just 30 minutes.  Just like with anything else, if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is.
