Dr. Tantisira is the first Hawaii physician to perform the Madonna Lift, which is a non-surgical procedure that addresses aging skin in the eye area. Also called a laser blepharoplasty, the treatment improves sagging upper eyelids by tightening the eyelid skin, as well as under the skin under the eyes and crow’s feet.
The procedure was developed by Dr. Bruce Katz, who pioneered the titanium inserts that protect the eyes. Prior to this, fractional Co2 lasers could be used on the skin, but not the eyelids specifically.
In preparation to the procedure, patients receive numbing drops in the eyes, and the inserts are put in. A numbing cream is also applied to the area to be treated as well as the eyelids.
Dr. Tantisira is guided by the patient’s aesthetic goals – and will prescribe 3-5 treatments in most cases. She may also use Botox or Dysport, and/or dermal fillers such as Radiesse or Restylane to further enhance the treatment. Mrs. K came to Dr. Melanie Tantisira seeking a way to address her saggy upper eyelids, under eye wrinkles and bags.
