LAGUNA WOODS, CA, August 29, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/ -- According to a new case study featured in "New Beauty" magazine, customized combination of facial procedures can achieve more effective results. The case study, provided by Dr. Cory Yeh, a leading facial plastic surgeon based in Orange County, Calif., illustrates how a tired appearance can be erased when combining blepharoplasty along with a micro fat transfer.
Blepharoplasty continues to be one of the most popular cosmetic procedures for men and women seeking to reduce the appearance of aging. The procedure can dramatically reduce the downward descent of the eyelids, but often doesn't address other signs of aging in the lower eyelids, cheeks, midface and temporal areas. According to Dr. Yeh, blepharoplasty combined with fat transfers offers a more comprehensive and optimal solution for those in search of the fountain of youth.
"Squinting, sun damage, volume loss, and genetics are the primary factors that lead to age-related changes in the eyes," said Dr. Yeh, voted Best Cosmetic Surgeon by Best of LA Viewers. "In order to fully restore the appearance of youthfulness, I've found that fat transfers in combination with blepharoplasty achieves the best results. By transferring fat into the lower eyelid and midface, we can rejuvenate and correct key problem areas, giving the patient the fully refreshed and vibrant look they're trying to achieve."
According to the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, more than 150,000 blepharoplasties were completed in 2012, making it one of the top five surgical procedures in the United States. The procedure, also known as eyelid surgery, involves removing excess fat, skin and muscle that can age the appearance of the eyes. The natural contour of the upper eyelid is restored and fatty deposits that cause puffiness are removed. Some may even experience improved vision in cases where excess skin obstructs peripheral vision.
When blepharoplasty candidates elect to also undergo a fat transfer, other areas around the eyes can be sculpted as well. The surgeon will use the candidates' own body fat to restore volume and correct hollows and depressions. A fat transfer is the most natural method of body sculpting available today and provides the potential for the most long-lasting effect.
"As a facial plastic surgeon, I spend a great deal of time studying facial aging and facial anatomy, and evaluating how the science can be advanced for the benefit of my patients," said Dr. Yeh. "Providing treatment plans that leverage the most cutting edge approaches in this field ensures that my patients are confident in the results and can go out and put their best face forward."
