A complete range of surgical and cosmetic eyelid procedures
Dr. Oestreicher can help your eyes look healthier and more attractive with a range of surgical cosmetic procedures, including the two most commonly performed procedures:
Blepharoplasty – the removal or reduction of bags under the eyes to help reduce or eliminate the look of "puffy" or "tired" eyes. Thanks to new techniques and advances in CO2 laser technology, upper lids heal faster and lower lid surgery can be done 'from the inside', leaving no visible scar.
Skin resurfacing – the reduction of lines, wrinkles and creases around the eyes for a smoother and more relaxed look.
What about non surgical cosmetic treatments?
If you can achieve your desired results without surgery, Dr. Oestreicher can help you achieve a more youthful appearance with non-invasive or minimally invasive cosmetic procedures.
Other non surgical and surgical procedures
offered by Dr. Oestreicher
- Non invasive cosmetic procedures to help other areas of your face look younger (removal of benign eyelid and facial lesions, IPL (photofacial), fillers, botox, eyelash lengthening treatments)
- Repair of eyelid procedures done by other surgeons
- Ophthalmic Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, which typically involves management of deformities and abnormalities of the eyelids, lacrimal (tear) system, the orbit (bony cavity surrounding the eye) and the adjacent face.
"It really does take years off your appearance"
I had the bags under my eyes removed. I also had CO2 laser to smooth wrinkles. It really does take years off your appearance. I was very happy with the outcome and have had lots of positive comments ever since. After surgery, you look pretty beat up but I could go back to work in 2 weeks. The laser treatment takes quite a while to settle - up to six months, but it looks really good now too. I felt Dr. Oestreicher did a great job and I would recommend him for this type of surgery.
