Blepharoplasties and Brow Lift with facial fat transfer to rejuvenate the appearance of an older woman
Eyelid procedures are common in a Washington DC plastic surgery office. Both nonsurgical and surgical options are available to rejuvenate a person's appearance. Some may need smoother skin, while others may request improvement of eye bags and dark circles. The best plastic surgeons tailor procedures to the needs of each patient.
Liquid facelift injections are very popular for the eyes. Restylane® and Belotero® are some facial fillers to fill dark circles and camoflouge eye bags. Results with nonsurgical injections will vary based on several factors such as the specific material, treatment area, and amount of filler injected. Nonsurgical options only go so far and not a replacement for surgery.
Excess tissue develops gradually with time in the upper eyelid area, from excess eyelid skin and/or a droopy eyelid. Upper eyelid surgery is popular to appear more rested without necessarily looking different. Upper eyelid surgery reduces excess skin and fat to help the eyes appear more open and less heavy. A brow lift may be recommended with eyelid surgery for enhanced results.
The Washington DC woman asked Dr. Chaboki for eyelid rejuvenation. She previously had eyelid surgery years ago by another eyelid surgeon. However, she sought the expert cosmetic opinion of Dr. Chaboki, a facial specialist. She reported "looking tired" from excess skin and fat that also made her eyes bags look worse.
She underwent revision upper eyelid surgery and lower eyelid surgery, brow lift, and facial fat transfer. Her own fat was used to restore youthful fullness to her face and cheeks. While some patients have apprehension in having multiple procedures at once, she still looks naturally refreshed after plastic surgery with Dr. Chaboki.

Dr. Chaboki is able to perform various cosmetic facial procedures per patient request, such as a mini facelift. After photographs are a several weeks after plastic surgery. She is very happy with her natural results and has referred others to Dr. Chaboki.
