This 55-year-old Virginia Beach woman was bothered by extra skin and fat bulges in her upper and lower lids. I had a very thorough consultation with her and explained that with careful inspection, we see not only a bulge beneath her lower lids, but there is another bulge further down and beneath the outside half of her eyes.  However, this lower bulging area is caused by a roll of muscle, the orbicularis muscle.  With a technique called a muscle hitch, this muscle is unfurled, tightened and suspended outside of the corner of the eye.  This procedure, along with removal of the bulging fat and fat grafting, gave this patient a very smooth and younger appearance.

Practice Policy Update Regarding COVID-19

We are excited to announce our reopening as of May 1st. While many things have changed, one thing has remained the same: Our commitment to your safety.

Consultations are available in our office and we will continue to offer Virtual Consultations as well. You will be asked to complete your registration paperwork in our secure patient portal prior to your appointment and your consultation fee will be collected by phone to minimize contact.

Here are a few changes we have made as we transition to this new era:

  • Please reschedule your appointment if you are not feeling well, have a fever, have been exposed to anyone with Covid-19 or travelled internationally within the last month.
  • We will limit the number of people in the building and waiting area to maintain social distancing and our staff will be wearing masks until restrictions are eased.
  • Please wear a mask during your visit but do not wear gloves. You will be given hand sanitizer.
