Some may think cosmetic surgery is considered primarily when people reach their 60s and 70s.However, a growing number of men and woman in their 40s and 50s are concerned with baggy eyelids, wrinkles and sun-damaged skin. They are seeking results that don’t come in a bottle or jar but also don’t require major surgery.

Dr. Howard Conn, and state of the art laser technology, make it possible to achieve remarkable results, with significantly less recovery time and little or no bruising. Depending on the extent of treatment, anesthesia is often not required. Dr. Conn’s advanced laser techniques reduces recovery time for cosmetic eyelid surgery from weeks to hours. Within 24 hours people are often able to function, put on makeup and even return to work if they need to. People are amazed at how pain free and comfortable they feel.
“Laser cosmetic surgery is the perfect choice for men and women who want to look their best but feel a traditional facelift is too drastic” says Dr. Conn.

“Lasers can precisely remove eyelid bags, puffiness, excess skin and vaporize facial wrinkles, age spots and sun-damaged skin in a matter of moments and often without a skin incision.”     Dr. Conn began using lasers in surgery in 1978. He is a Harvard-trained general surgeon, a Johns Hopkins board-certified ophthalmologist,

and a Fellow of the American Society of Ophthalmic Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery. He has written and presented more than 200 scientific papers and lectures.”The skin around the eyes is very delicate and often first place where a person’s age begins to show.” says Dr. Conn. “Appearance aside, it is crucial to consider what is best for the actual function of the eyes including how the nerves and tissue around them will be affected by the surgery.”

“For that reason, a complete eye exam is performed before a treatment plan is developed.”

And for those who think that the “wide eyed, scary look” is the hallmark of cosmetic eye surgery, think again. Poorly done traditional cosmetic surgery often tightly pulls the skin back in the attempt to smooth it.”Laser cosmetic technology is vastly different because it doesn’t pull the skin or cause an unnatural and distorted appearance” states Dr. Conn. “The end result is that our patients look rested and years younger.”

It is important to choose a doctor that is not only a trained plastic surgeon, but one who is a qualified expert of the eyes and nerves and tissues surrounding the eyes. Ocular Plastic Surgeon, Dr. Howard Conn is one of the few doctors in the country who is such an expert.

Dr. Conn’s office is at the Irvine Medical Center, 16300 Sand Canyon Avenue, Suite 1007.
