Surgical Procedures Q & A

What are surgical procedures?

A surgical procedure refers to a treatment that requires incisions or manipulation of the body to achieve the desired results.

Dr. Tayani is an ophthalmologist who received additional training to be able to perform various eye surgeries. He’s also an aesthetic specialist.

What is cosmetic eyelid surgery?

Whether from sagging skin or fat deposits, your eyelids may make you look older than your years and/or affect your vision. Cosmetic eyelid surgery, referred to as blepharoplasty, can improve the look and function of your eyelids and shave years from your look.

During the procedure, Dr. Tayani removes excess skin, removes or repositions fat deposits, and tightens the skin and muscles in your eyelid.

The procedure can be conducted on both your upper and lower eyelid. Due to the nature of the procedure, you may need to take some downtime following your cosmetic eyelid surgery for recovery.

Dr. Tayani also offers eyelid reconstruction, which may be necessary after trauma to the eye that has an altered appearance from a tumor. The aesthetic expert carefully crafts a surgical plan for your eyelid reconstruction to give you the best possible outcomes.

What can I expect during a face lift?

A facelift (rhytidectomy) is an aesthetic surgical procedure performed to produce a younger appearance in your face.

With a facelift, the goal is to surgically and strategically elevate your skin and tighten the underlying muscles and tissues.

During your personal consultation in-office, your Tayani Institute surgeon discusses the facelift procedure in detail so you know what to expect and can determine if it’s the right choice for you.

What is skin resurfacing?

Skin resurfacing is an aesthetic treatment that aims to reduce the signs of aging. The team at Tayani Institute use the Active FX™ laser for skin resurfacing treatments.

This advanced laser system is equipped with a fractional carbon dioxide laser that gently removes the top layer of your skin to uncover the healthy, younger skin underneath.

After skin resurfacing, your skin may appear red and flaky for up to a week, but this treatment requires very little downtime.

You should start to notice an improvement in your skin as the old skin sloughs off, revealing your younger, fresher skin.
