DC Eye Lift Surgery

Are you considering an eye lift surgery in DC? Here’s what you should know.

DC Eye Lift Surgery

 

During your DC eye lift surgery, or Blepharoplasty, excess tissue is removed from the eyelid area and surrounding areas to create a more youthful appearance and to possibly improve vision. Eyelid surgery can be performed on the upper lids, lower lids or both.

Expert DC plastic surgeons, Drs. Bruno and Brown, take into consideration the overall harmony of your facial features when performing eye lift procedures.

What are the Benefits of Eye Lift Surgery?

Your eyes are the part of your face that likely receives a lot of attention, which inspires many people undergoing an eye lift procedure is a small way to make a dramatic difference in your appearance. Other benefits can include:

  • Reduced signs of aging and sun damage
  • Smoothed skin surrounding the eyes
  • Brightened appearance of dark patches or bags under the eyes
  • Lifted appearance of hollows under the eyes
  • Decreased puffiness in fatty deposits that appear under the eyes
  • Reduction of fine wrinkles of the lower eyelid

Recovery from DC Eye Lift Surgery

Initial healing may include some swelling, bruising, irritation, dry eyes and discomfort that can be controlled with medication, cold compresses and ointment. Irritation at the incision sites is also possible.

Be sure to ask Drs. Bruno or Brown specific questions about what you can expect during your individual recovery period.

Growing Popularity of Eye Lift Procedures

The American Society of Plastic Surgeons ranks eyelid surgery as one of the top 5 cosmetic surgical procedures of 2016, with over 200,000 performed in 2016 alone. The number of eye lift procedures performed is up 2% from last year. Additionally, the industry has seen a rise in eye lid surgery on men. 

Choosing a Plastic Surgeon for Your Eye Lift Procedure

As with all surgical procedures, it is very important to make sure your procedure is being performed by a board-certified, licensed and insured plastic surgeon. Such a surgeon should have extensive medical knowledge of the procedure as well as a history of successfully performed eye lift procedures, like top DC plastic surgeons Drs. Bruno and Brown.

Drs. Bruno and Brown will be with you every step of the way, including during your initial consultation, to help determine which eye lift procedure is right for you.

Botox Treatments from Top Plastic Surgeons in DC

If you’re looking for top-rated DC plastic surgeons to reduce your wrinkles, Botox may be right for you.

Top DC Plastic Surgeons and Botox Administration

What is Botox?

In a Botox procedure, small injections of Botox are made into the skin, to smooth lines and prevent wrinkles. While you may be unsure of exactly where you want to have your Botox injections, board-certified and top-rated DC plastic surgeons Drs Bruno and Brown are expertly qualified to determine if Botox injections are right for you to achieve your desired appearance.

What are the Benefits of Botox?

  • Smoothing of crow’s feet (lines around the corners of the eyes)
  • Reduced appearance of forehead wrinkles
  • Restored elasticity of vertical lines between the eyebrows
  • Reduction of lines in the folds between the nose and lips

How Popular is Botox?

According to statistics gathered by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, in 2016 alone, over 7 million Botox procedures were performed. This number is up almost 800% from 2000. With the growing popularity of this procedure, there are also a growing number of people offering to perform it. This causes important questions to arise, like who is qualified to administer Botox?

Why We Think Botox is Better from Plastic Sugeons

While you may see regular providers or even spas offering Botox treatment, Botox should be administered by a trained and experienced medical professional. Specifically, it should be administered by someone who is board-certified in their field, such as DC plastic surgeons Drs Bruno and Brown.

Those who have no knowledge of the field of plastic surgery will not be able to administer the Botox injections with the same skill as someone who is board-certified in their field. This could cause complications to arise, which the person administering your Botox may not have the medical knowledge to handle.

Specifically, someone who has limited experience as a medical professional could make the injections too deep, too low or in the wrong spot, and this could cause negative side effects, like a droopy eyelid. Finding a licensed and board-certified plastic surgeon can mitigate your risks and ensure you’re receiving the best care possible.

What Are the Risks and Recovery Time?

While you may experience some minor pain or swelling at the injection site, this usually goes away almost immediately after the initial injections. One RealSelf user describes her experience receiving Botox treatment from a licensed plastic surgeon as, “I had swelling around the injection sites for five minutes, it was totally gone by the time I left the clinic.”

This procedure is great for those looking to reverse the effects of aging and improve their appearance, without undergoing a major surgical procedure. Because the risks are minimal, it’s perfect for those who are just beginning to explore the field of plastic surgery and are still figuring out what results they desire.

There is no recovery time for this procedure, and the whole thing usually takes between 10-15 minutes. The effects can last as long as 4 months, or even longer if follow-up treatments are made.

DC Tummy Tuck Plastic Surgery

Getting Tummy Tuck Surgery in DC: If your constant efforts to change your appearance have proved unsuccessful, a tummy tuck procedure may be right for you.

What is a Tummy Tuck?

The Tummy Tuck procedure, also known as abdominoplasty, is a procedure in which the excess skin and fat are removed from around the waistline and stomach. While you may be unsure if a tummy tuck procedure is right to help you achieve a slimmer, more toned mid-section, board-certified plastic surgeons Drs Bruno and Brown are expertly qualified to help you determine if a tummy tuck is right for you.

What are the Benefits of a Tummy Tuck?

  • Provides body contouring
  • Flattens the stomach area
  • Improves the appearance of abdominal muscles
  • Reduces the size of the waistline and hipline
  • Enhances the overall figure
  • Tightens stomach muscles
  • Removes excess, loose, or hanging skin, which may be the result of weight loss or pregnancy
  • Reduces appearance of stretch marks, particularly after pregnancy

Who Should Consider a Tummy Tuck?

If you’ve been pregnant or experienced significant weight loss, if tireless efforts to improve your appearance have had no avail, or if you simply have excess skin or fat in the stomach region, a body contouring tummy tuck may help you to feel more comfortable in your own skin and allow you reach the goals you’ve set for your appearance.

What Kinds of Tummy Tuck Procedures Can I Have Performed?

DC Plastic Surgeons Drs Bruno and Brown take a unique and holistic approach to tummy tuck procedures, focusing on maximizing the results for your entire waistline, rather than focusing on just the abdomen. Due to the nature of this approach, a tummy tuck procedure with our DC plastic surgeons can help you drop several pant sizes.

As board-certified plastic surgeons we are experts at performing tummy tucks in the DC region, and will work with you to determine which tummy tuck procedure best meets your individual needs to help you achieve your desired appearance.

  • Full tummy tuck: involves an incision across the hip line and around the belly button
  • Mini tummy tuck: involves a smaller incision and is often complemented by liposuction
  • Extended tummy tuck: best suited to individuals who have lost significant amounts of weight, involves incisions around the flank, lower back, and hip line

How Popular are Tummy Tuck Procedures?

According to statistics gathered by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, in 2016 alone, over 125,000 tummy tuck procedures were performed. This number is up over 100% from 2000.

What is the Recovery Time?

The timeline for a tummy tuck procedure can vary between patients, but most patients will be able to stop taking pain medication within the first week, be back on their feet within 1-2 weeks, be able to exercise again in 4 weeks, often resuming normal activity completely within 1 to 2 months.
