Dr. LeRoy,

I wanted to thank you for the incredible results I got from my mini upper blepharoplasty. It’s been just over a month since the surgery and I couldn’t be happier.

You really are an artist who has been blessed with an incredible gift. In addition to a great outcome, I was also impressed with the rest of your team. Dorothy made me so comfortable from my first visit and really helped me deal with my nerves. As a business owner, I know how important it is to have the right people and Dorothy certainly is an asset. Her admiration of your abilities awed me before we met.

I’ve already recommended you to two friends and look forward to my next adventure with you.

Thanks again for a great experience!

Shifting the Focus: The Benefits of Blepharoplasty

Tired of looking tired? According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS), blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery) was the third most commonly performed cosmetic surgical procedure in 2012.   Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. John L. LeRoy can reduce bags underneath the eye and drooping eyelids with eyelid surgery. As the innovator of the Band Aid treatment line, Dr. LeRoy performs a minimally-invasive version of this procedure, which can give patients who are not yet in need of the traditional procedure effective results with less recovery time.

When you are seeking to address signs of aging, areas of the eyes are a common place to start. The skin of our eyelids is very thin, and it is begins to stretch and become lax with age, excess folds of skin can begin to hang over the edge of the upper eyelids, sometimes drastically enough to impair vision. If improving vision is a goal of your cosmetic surgery, Dr. LeRoy may advise combining blepharoplasty with a forehead or brow lift. Brow lift surgery can give the upper region of your face a smoother, more youthful appearance. Designed for patients with mild furrowing of the brow and wrinkling of the forehead, Dr. LeRoy also offers the Band Aid browlift, which uses a less invasive technique to accomplish many of the same goals of an endoscopic brow lift without the need for an extended recovery time.

In the delicate, thin skin around the lids, fine wrinkle lines and creases develop, resulting in a tired or sad appearance. While often categorized as a natural component of aging, these changes can lessen the natural beauty of the eye area. Dr. LeRoy believes you deserve to show off your gorgeous greens, brilliant blues, and beautiful browns to help you become your most beautiful, confident self. With traditional or Band Aid blepharoplasty, you can significantly reduce signs of age and fatigue with long-lasting, natural-looking results.

The ideal candidate for blepharoplasty should have healthy, functioning facial tissue and muscles, is not a smoker, and does not have a life-threatening illness or medical condition that could negatively affect healing. A positive outlook and clear-cut, realistic goals for improvement of the upper and/or lower eyelids and surrounding area are necessary for a successful procedure from the initial consultation to successful healing.

An Evolution of Facial Fillers & Relaxers

As each year passes, new developments are being made in facial rejuvenation. Along with the extensive Band Aid procedures line, minimally-invasive plastic surgery procedures developed by board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. John L. LeRoy, wrinkle fillers and relaxers are popularly used for patients who may not yet need or desire to undergo invasive surgical techniques to revive the face.

face_liposuctionFacial injectables have been used for centuries, but only in recent history have they been safe and effective for use. Shortly after the invention of the syringe in the 1800s, chemical agents were used for facial augmentation. However, as history progressed, medical researchers realized that new technologies must be used with caution and knowledge of the complications that could occur. Collagen, a protein found in the human body, was one of the first types of FDA-approved facial filler, making its way to the market in 1981.  Now, there are 21 injectables currently approved.

Wrinkle relaxers, such as FDA-approved BOTOX® and Dysport®, function by blocking nerve signals to the muscles so they are temporarily unable to move, causing lines and wrinkles to relax.  In 2002, popular relaxer BOTOX® was approved and has since grown to become the number one non-surgical cosmetic treatment in the United States in 2012, according to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS).

Restylane® was the first hyaluronic acid (a naturally-occurring sugar) dermal filler approved in 2003. Fillers consist of a myriad of substances, including collagen, hyaluronic acid, calcium hydroxylapatite, poly-L-lactic acid and polymethylmethacrylate beads. Dr. LeRoy offers several injectable facial fillers, including Perlane® for re-plumping areas of lost volume on the face that deplete with age, Juvéderm®for reducing the appearance of deep wrinkles and folds, and Artefill® for prominent wrinkles and fine lines.

One difference between fillers and the offerings within the Band Aid comprehensive menu is their durability and ability to fill in the creases. While Band Aid procedures provide long-lasting results affected only by the natural aging process, injectables provide temporary anti-aging effects between four months to a year depending on the product. When you visit Dr. LeRoy, the products that may be the best fit for your individual needs can be recommended, during your consultation, we can help determine which facial rejuvenation procedure is right for your aesthetic goals.
