Eyelid laxity

We offer surgical solution of upper eyelid blepharoplasty [eyelid skin removal] for advanced changes. For early or mild skin excess we can suggest CO2 fractional eyelift or madonna lift. We do not offer lower eyelid surgery and brow lift surgery has been largely replaced by non surgical procedures.

Dr. Bruce Katz, a dermatologist from New York has pioneered this new procedure which is safe and effective with minimal downtime. It improves dark rings and wrinkles, tightens upper and lower eyelid skin and helps to elevate drooping eyebrows.

Fractional eye lift or Madonna Lift improves wrinkles around the eyes, tighten eyelid skin, improve skin texture and can elevate eyebrows. This fractional laser procedure can help you avoid eyelid surgery [blepharoplasty ] with associated risks and downtime.

These are pictures of patient treated by Dr Gheyi for fractional eye lift using the smartxide DOT Co2 laser system. These are results after just 1 session. Notice the tightening of upper eyelid skin and improvement in crows's feet area.

What is fractional eye lift or Madonna Lift?
The Madonna Lift is a new type of laser eye lift. It utilizes an innovative fractional CO2 laser which creates tiny microscopic channels in the tissue so that new collagen can grow in to rejuvenate the skin. It is important to remember that it is fractional carbon dioxide [ smartxide DOT] and not any other type of laser that has been used to carry out this procedure. You can watch a video of this procedure here

What does the fractional eye lift or Madonna Lift do?
It rejuvenates the skin around eyes, reduces the appearance of dark rings and wrinkles while tightening eyelid skin and elevating drooping eyebrows.

What are the advantages of fractional eye lift or Madonna Lift?
Fractional carbon dioxide laser produces tiny micro beams of laser light. These beams remove tiny fractions of skin so that fresh skin with renewed elasticity can grow back in its place. Because only a fraction of the skin is removed, healing is very quick and virtually painless. It produces results similar to eyelid surgery, without the risks and downtime!
