Eye Surgery Refractive Surgery
Ophthalmic Surgeons have developed surgical alternatives for those patients who desire to be less dependent on glasses and contact lenses. These surgical alternatives are known as refractive surgery.
Eyelid Surgery (Blepharoplasty)
This surgery is performed to remove sagging tissues, which can include: skin, muscle and protruding fat pockets on the upper and lower eyelids. Dr. Pham uses laser surgery to remove these tissues; the incisions are made in the natural skin folds of the eyelids, which makes them virtually unnoticeable after healing is completed.
Rhinoplasty (Nasal Dorsum Implant)
Rhinoplasty augments the radix and dorsum of the nose. The tapered profile of the implant provides a more aesthetically pleasing nose for Asians or other ethnic rhinoplasty patients.
Rhytidectomy is performed to remove loose, sagging, or excess skin from the face and neck. This can be done under I.V. sedation or general anesthesia depending on the extent of the surgery. This allows the patient to be comfortable during surgery. All surgery is individualized to fit the patient’s needs.
Laser procedures can be used to remove varicose veins, spider veins, permanent make-up, birthmarks, most tattoos, blemishes, freckles, age spots, wrinkles, and creases. Wrinkles, lines, and brown spots fade after laser resurfacing. Generally once a blemish is treated it almost never comes back.
Removal of Lip Lines
Laser resurfacing treatments can smooth vertical lip lines. These resurfacing treatments can be used either alone or in combination with injectable lip fillers. All lasers used for skin resurfacing and rejuvenation use beams of high energy to tighten and repair skin. Although there have been several types of lasers in use over the years, fractional lasers are one of the most popular, gentle and effective.
