Excellence in Eye Care

"Quality eyelid surgery should enhance the appearance and function of the eyelid without creating the slightest hint of that stereotypical surgical look. Over the years, I’ve continued to develop and use surgical procedures that reflect this philosophy while ensuring that each patient receives the highest standard of care and individualized aesthetics."
Dr. Ragen

Appearance is increasingly important in today’s society. As a result, more and more people are worried about the look and aging aspects of their face. To many people, altering their appearance would give them confidence and/or help them to look as young as they feel.

Consequently, the search for cosmetic surgery has also increased as a viable way of achieving their beauty goal. In some cities this search is so intense that as a result, many unqualified and uncertified doctors have started providing cosmetic eye surgery. This is especially the case in high fashion cities like Los Angeles. Eyelid surgeon decisions and selection are careful tasks which require extensive research.

Through this section you will find all the operation descriptions. Below, is a list of some of the procedures we perform at Ventura Eye Institute.

Upper Eyelid Surgery / Lower Eyelid Surgery (or "Blepharoplasty")

One of the most commonly performed cosmetic surgery procedures in Los Angeles is eyelid surgery, or the technique of eliminating skin excesses. Eyelid cosmetic surgery, or blepharoplasty, can remove drooping upper lids and the excess of skin below the eyes. This simple 20-30 minute eyelid surgery procedure helps to correct the features that make you look older and tired.

At our Institute near Los Angeles, blepharoplasty can be done under local anesthetic. This allows our patients to rest or talk and ask questions during the surgery and avoids the risks associated with general anesthesia.

Eyebrow Surgery

A brow lift rejuvenates the entire face, creating a youthful more relaxed appearance. Eyebrow lifts can be performed without large incisions. In most cases, brow and forehead lifts may be done with just an endoscopic surgical technique.

Permanent make-up

Permanent eyeliner and eyebrow makeup can save time and ensure a great look at any time. Permanent make-up is an excellent option for women with arthritis or any other disease that affect body or hand movement.

Skin Rejuvenation Options

At the Ventura Eye Institute, vibrant and youthful skin can be restored in less than 30 minutes. Dr. Ragen provides several treatment programs customized to improve and maintain youthful beauty. From Microdermabrasion to CO2 Laser Resurfacing to the use of the high quality Murad line of skin products.
