Dr. Kahana has specialized training and experience in cosmetic oculofacial plastic procedures, with a focus on the eyelids, forehead and midface. For optimal aesthetic results, Dr. Kahana believes that cosmetic procedures must be nuanced and customized to the patients desires, needs, and unique anatomy. The key to achieving outstanding aesthetic results is careful pre-operative planning. Once the plan is set, it must be executed properly, followed by appropriate aftercare. Dr. Kahana and his team are committed to your care, with exceptional attention to detail and a creative, customized approach.
An important consideration in all eyelid surgery is the presence of dryness of the ocular surface. If you have dry eyes, please share that with Dr. Kahana and his team. We will utilize a special biomicroscope – a “slit lamp” – to perform an evaluation of the eye surface. If your ocular surface is dry, we can initiate treatment prior to any surgery. Such treatment is usually covered by insurance and is essential to healthy eyes and good vision. The ability to fully evaluate the eyes when performing a cosmetic eyelid surgery evaluation is a strength of ophthalmic plastic surgeons, who have completed training in both ophthalmology (i.e. eye surgery) and oculofacial plastic surgery.
