Beverly Hills, CA (PRWEB) October 11, 2012
You may have heard of the Beverly Hills’ “Golden Triangle,” a glamorous grid of commercial streets filled with luxury shops and restaurants, with the city’s fabled shopping avenue – Rodeo Drive – at the very center. The area is aptly named because it encompasses the idea of three sides coming together to form a perfect space, with a recognized ideal at the center. Now, a trio of leading physicians is applying the “Golden Triangle” comparison to a method of achieving another recognized ideal: perfect eyes.
“Better anatomical understanding of periorbital aging has led three aesthetic super specialists from three different disciplines to join forces in order to achieve super eyes,” explains Dr. Babak Azizzadeh, a facial plastic surgeon who practices at the CENTER for Advanced Facial Plastic Surgery in Beverly Hills and who is one of the physicians in this progressive trio.
According to Dr. Azizzadeh, the brand-new approach, which he calls “The New Eye Paradigm,” is a product of utilizing novel surgical and non-surgical approaches together to achieve multi-disciplinary success for perfect eyes enhancement. As technology expands, the idea of surgery alone to accomplish a more youthful and rested appearance is diminishing, and patients seek an all-encompassing solution to achieve their desired result. The eyes are considered the windows to the soul and youthful eyes are among the most requested of anti-aging surgeries. This fresh solution – believed to be the next big thing in eyelid rejuvenation – has been perfected by Board Certified Facial Plastic Surgeon Dr. Azizzadeh, Cosmetic Dermatologist Dr. Rebecca Fitzgerald, and Dr. Guy Massry, an Oculoplastic Surgeon.
Through a better understanding of eyelid anatomy, facial analysis and aging changes, the technique involves using fillers such as Restylane to actually re-contour the upper and lower eyelid hollows that result in an aged appearance. Botox and Ulthera, a microfocused ultrasound tightening device, is used in a complementary fashion to reposition the brows in a non-surgical manner. This is a “New Eye Paradigm” from radical surgery that was the norm in the last several decades.
“Today we know that changes around the eyes associated with aging do not just involve sagging skin. There are multiple components such as loss of skin elasticity, drooping of the eyebrows and cheek fat pads, and weakness of supporting eyelid structures that lead to a tired appearance and puffiness under the eyes,” says Dr. Azizzadeh, one of the top facial plastic surgeons in the United States. “This knowledge led us to the idea of combination therapy to achieve the absolute best results.”
Traditionally, blepharoplasty surgery involved the removal of significant fat, skin and muscle in order to obtain what is perceived as "youthful" eyes. However, this approach often resulted in hollowness of the eye area and an unnatural "cat-like" look in the corner of the eyes.
“With this brand-new combination method, each individual receives a personalized approach to obtaining perfect eyes,” adds Dr. Azizzadeh. “The results are natural and involve minimal risks, complications or down-time. We are excited to finally share it with the world.”
Dr. Azizzadeh is one of the leading experts in the field of primary and revision blepharoplasty, and recognized as a Top Doctor by the US News & World Report. He completed a fellowship in facial plastic & reconstructive surgery at the prestigious Harvard Medical School, and is the author of five bestselling books, including “Master Techniques in Blepharoplasty”, “Master Techniques in Facial Rejuvenation” and “Beverly Hills beauty Secrets.” Dr. Azizzadeh has been recognized for his work on several occasions, and has appeared on Entertainment Tonight, The Doctors, the Oprah Winfrey Show and countless other media outlets.
Dr. Azizzadeh serves on the Physician Advisory Board of Sanofi-Aventis, Mysoscience, Mentor, and SkinMedica, and was awarded the RealSelf Top Botox Experts Award in 2011. Dr. Azizzadeh is also the director of the USC Facial Plastic Fellowship Program, and the director of the world renowned Cedars-Sinai Advances in Multispecialty Aesthetic and Reconstructive Surgery Symposium.
