Facial Plastic Surgery at Amara includes:

• Blepharoplasty – Eyelid surgery, commonly known to surgeons as “bleph,” is used to remove fatty deposits and  excess, loose skin around the eyelids as a result of aging and environment.
• Facelifts (full, mid and “mini”) – Facelift surgery is a well-known procedure among men and women experiencing signs of facial aging, such as sagging skin, excess fat deposits, folds, creases, and wrinkles.
• Browlifts – A browlift can help to immediately improve the effects of facial aging including forehead creases, droopy skin over the eyelids, and frown lines.

“My three-year fellowship training provided me the opportunity to learn from some of the most respected leaders in each field. I continue to research and assess the newest technological and procedural innovations in my specialty in order to fully educate my patients and offer them the best care in ophthalmic facial plastic cosmetic and reconstructive surgery.”
