Liposuction is a popular cosmetic surgical procedure employed to improve the appearance of the chin, neck, jowls, cheeks, arms, thighs, buttocks, knees, hips, breasts, and abdomen. Liposuction is an effective tool in reducing a multitude of “figure faults”, resulting in a thinner, healthier body.
Eyelid Surgery: (Upper and Lower Blepharoplasty)
Blepharoplasty is surgery of the eyelid. Excess skin or fat is taken out and the eyelid is reconstructed to be smoother, tighter, and have a more pleasing shape. Blepharoplasties are cosmetic as well as practical. We often perform blepharoplasties on patients whose eyelids droop in a way that interferes with their vision. Cosmetically, many people have this surgery to look younger, less tired, and happier. It is a small surgery that makes a big difference.
Dr. Zahir performs scar revisions that may be necessitated for cosmetic purposes following Mohs Surgery procedures.
