Oculoplastic surgeon Dr. Mehryar Taban take us inside the operating room as he transforms his patients round eyes to a more almond shape. He is able to make incisions from the inside to place a spacer inside the lower eyelid, leaving no scarring on the face. Next, he raises the outer corner of the eye. Then he moves on to the other eye to make sure they match.
Watch: Eyelid Lift
Dr. Taban joins The Doctors to show off some before and after pictures of people who have undergone this surgery. He shares, "It's not a common surgery, and it's not for everybody." The surgery takes about an hour and there's some bruising and swelling following the week after the procedure.
"If they didn't like that look, are you able to reverse it by releasing your stitches?" plastic surgeon Dr. Andrew Ordon wonders. Dr. Taban admits that he luckily hasn't had to do that yet, but yes, it is reversible.
This surgery will set you back anywhere from $4-12,000, and Dr. Ordon shares that you really want to make sure that your surgeon is very well acquainted with the anatomy of the eye since this is a more sensitive surgery.
