Eye Surgery Santa Monica
To successfully eliminate wrinkles, our skilled medical team can employ a variety of fillers, peels, and Bototulinum toxin agents. Botulinum toxin blocks acetylcholine release. This chemical tells muscles to contract, and when release is blocked, the skin is smoothed and softened.
In-turning of the eyelid margin can cause a chronic irritation and eye mattering. Untreated, this condition can lead to vision loss. Our surgical team corrects this problem by internally re-inserting lower eyelid retractors, excising a small Orbicularis muscle strip and tightening the eyelid. Dr Dresner developed a minimal scar approach through the inside of the eyelid, which is used throughout the world.
Out-turning of the eyelid margin may cause redness, tearing, or mattering. Repair involves tightening the lower eyelid with a small incision hidden in the small lines at the outside corner of the eyelids.
The rounding of the lower eyelid contour, or eyelid retraction occurs after a problematic procedure of lower blepharoplasty, age or thyroid eye disease. We offer a variety of methods designed to repair this deformity and address each patient’s needs.
Our Santa Monica surgeons treat tearing problems with treatments targeting the anatomic or physiologic imbalance between tear production and drainage. Common treatments include improved ocular surface lubrication to prevent reflex tearing, punctual plugs or occlusion, and tear duct surgery.
These surgeries include procedures like enucleation, the detaching of eye muscles and removal of the eye with the insertion of an orbital implant; evisceration, or the removal of cornea and portions of the inner eye; and secondary eye socket procedures like the repair of upper eyelid ptosis, ectropion, lower eyelid retraction, or scar tissue causing contraction of the tissue and inability to wear a prosthesis.
Our team is skilled at treating deformities from thyroid eye disease, including upper eyelid retraction, lower eyelid retraction and eye protrusion.
At Eyesthetica’s Santa Monica facility, we provide surgery for eyelid tumors and skin cancer, skillfully assuring complete removal and reconstruction. We also conduct surgery for orbital tumors in adults and children, and we work side by side with head and neck surgeons, radiologists, neurosurgeons, and oncologists.
Our practice utilizes botulinum toxin agents to improve Benign Essential Blepharospasm and Hemifacial Spasm.
We provide skin peels in our Santa Monica office to improve skin tone and texture.
These injectable gel fillers repair drooping and deflation around the eyes and across the face, working to smooth static wrinkles.
