Beauty AT ANY AGE

Oregon Eye Specialists’, welcomes Dr. Coleen Palileo to the Tualatin and Newberg clinics.

There are both medical and personal reasons for someone to choose cosmetic surgery. Whatever your reason, Oregon Eye Specialists’ Dr. Coleen Palileo who specializes in oculoplastic surgery, can help you whether the drooping skin around your eyes is impairing your vision, or if it is just making you look tired and beyond your years. We want you to have confidence as well as clear vision.

Eyelid Conditions

Dermatochalasis | Droopy Eyelids

The natural aging process is the main culprit for that drooping skin around your eyes but that loose skin can hide the natural contours of your face leaving you looking tired and older than your years. In addition, the sagging skin around the eyes can impair your vision.

Herniated Orbital Fat | Puffy Under Eye Bags

Lower eyelid bags are one of the most common reasons patients seek consultation by an oculofacial plastic surgeon. These bags can result in a tired appearance that ages you beyond your years. Lower eyelid bags consist of normal fatty tissue that surrounds and protects the eyes however as we age this fatty tissue tends to protrude outward resulting in their puffy appearance. Unfortunately, this puffiness is often impossible to cover with makeup and cannot be improved even with weight loss. A scarless surgical procedure called a lower eyelid blepharoplasty can be performed to remove the protruding fatty tissue under the eyes to restore a more youthful and rested appearance.

Eyelid Treatments

Upper Eyelid Blepharoplasty

A cosmetic upper eyelid blepharoplasty is an effective procedure that removes excess skin and/or repositions fat from your upper eyelids, restoring the bright youthful look of your eyes. A small incision is made on the upper eyelid and the excess skin and fat pads are gently removed. The wound is closed with fine sutures that the surgeon places along the natural lines or creases of the eyelid to hide any scarring. This procedure can be done in the office or in an outpatient surgical facility. The surgeon will numb the upper eyelids with a numbing injection and the procedure takes approximately 30 minutes to complete.

The areas around the eyes are extremely delicate and deserve special attention, especially during surgical repair. Dr. Coleen Palileo is an oculoplastic surgeon who received specialized training in plastic surgery that occurs around the eyes.

Lower Eyelid Blepharoplasty

A cosmetic lower eyelid blepharoplasty is an excellent procedure that removes excess fatty tissue from your lower eyelids. This procedure is typically scarless because the doctor can make the incision on the inside of the eyelid, avoiding any incisions on the skin and face. The doctor will carefully remove any excess fatty tissue to restore a more youthful and rested appearance. Your doctor may also recommend a skin tightening procedure in conjunction with your lower eyelid blepharoplasty to improve the fine lines and wrinkles on your lower eyelids.

The procedure is done at an outpatient surgical facility with local anesthesia (numbing injection) and a light sedative (we don’t have to put you fully to sleep). You are generally very relaxed and comfortable during the procedure. An anesthesiologist will be with you during the procedure to help ensure your safety and comfort. The procedure takes 45 to 60 minutes to complete.

Eyebrow Lift

As we age, our eyebrows tend to droop far below its natural position. This results in crowding of the upper eyelids and the formation of lines around the eyes, especially horizontal lines adjacent to the eyes called crow’s feet. An eyebrow lift is an effective procedure to correct these issues.

During an eyebrow lift, the surgeon will lift the eyebrows to a higher, more natural and youthful position. This procedure will not result in any scars on the face, eyebrows, or eyelids. Instead, your surgeon will make incisions behind your hairline to hide any and all visible scars from the surgery. The procedure is done at an outpatient surgical facility with local anesthesia (numbing injection) and a light sedative. You are generally very relaxed and comfortable. An anesthesiologist will be with you during the procedure to help ensure your safety and comfort. The procedure takes approximately 60 minutes to complete.

Many patients enjoy good results from eyebrow and forehead lifts for decades.
