The eye is a complex organ, and there is no question about the importance of it in our every day life. Any cosmetic or reconstructive operation that a patient undergoes, no matter how large or miniscule, could potentially compromise one’s ability to see if complications arise or a surgery is botched. This begs the question of whether or not anyone should entrust their eyesight to anyone less than an expert on the subject of eyes. There is great debate in the field of plastic surgery over this very question, but one thing is clear: It’s better to be more specialized as a surgeon when handling problems or disorders relating to a patients eye or orbit.

Oculoplastic surgeons in Beverly Hills & Santa Barbara like Dr. Taban, are specialized in and only handle cases involving the eye.

Eyelifts, also known as blepharoplasty or eyelid surgery, are cosmetic procedures that are used to improve the appearance of the eyes. As we get older, our skin sags and looses elasticity. Eyebrows droop and bags begin to appear under the eyes. An eyelift addresses these cosmetic issues to make the eyes look young again.
Dr. Taban also specializes in treating individuals who have experienced any type of orbital trauma, causing them to need reconstructive or cosmetic surgery to their face. It’s common for Dr. Taban to help patients recover from sport-related injuries, personal injury accidents, and disorders that cause growths or tumors near a person’s eye.
