Hollywood surgeon develops new eyelid surgery procedure
17 January 2013A cosmetic surgeon based in Beverley Hills, Hollywood, has devised a new procedure designed specifically to smooth out the area between the eyebrow and upper eyelid after blepharoplasty. This treatment, which is commonly carried out to remove 'bags' from lower eyebrows, often results in the appearance of tiny depressions. But fat can be taken from the upper eyelid, and then re-implanted to smooth out this sensitive area of the lower brow. The procedure was pioneered by Dr Guy Massry, who has now received the go-ahead to publish a paper detailing the operation, after it was reviewed by a group of his fellow surgeons who are members of the American Society of Ophthalmic Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery. "The importance of this innovation is that it allows cosmetic upper blepharoplasty without leading to eyelid depressions (hollows). This is a big step forward in upper blepharoplasty surgery," said Dr Massry, who is an acknowledged expert in primary and revisional brow lift surgery procedures.
