We consistently deliver beautiful, natural-looking results to individuals striving for a more youthful and charming appearance.

She is committed to delivering a higher quality of patient care while using state of the art treatments to help patients achieve their aesthetic goals.
Aging is not a disease. It is a process which continues throughout our lifetime. Facial aging occurs naturally and chronologically as we get older, but also can be affected by environmental conditions, stress, gravity, and hereditary factors.
With facial aging comes loss of skin elasticity and firmness, sagging tissue, and increased wrinkles, skin folds, and jowls. These signs of aging can make us look older than we feel. Fortunately, many are living longer and healthier lives, and want to look as good as they feel. Face lift and eyelid lift surgery are two surgical procedures offered by Dr. Eliopoulos to help her patient achieve this goal and turn back the clock. She also offers a wide spectrum of non-surgical rejuvenating skin treatments, including Botox® Cosmetic, Injectable Facial Fillers, Advanced Laser and Skin Care Treatments, and Physician Strength Skin Care Products.
Rejuvenate With a Face Lift
At our state-of-the-art facility in Chelmsford, Massachusetts, we offer face lift surgery that will rejuvenate your face and restore the youthful contour of the mid face, jaw line and neck. The procedure improves facial contours by repositioning sagging tissue, fat and muscles and by removing excess fat and skin, giving a more rejuvenated natural appearance. A tighter, younger-looking face can translate into renewed self confidence as patients regain a more youthful, rested, and natural appearance.
Eyelid Surgery to Restore Your Youthful Looks
The eyes are the focal point of our face and our eyelids account for a large part of our facial appearance. Many patients are unhappy with excess drooping skin of the upper eyelids or puffy baggy lower eyelids. At the Center for Plastic Surgery, cosmetic eyelid surgery also known as blepharoplasty is one of the many facial rejuvenating procedures performed by Dr. Eliopoulos. Blepharoplasty of the upper and lower eyelids can help you look more rested, alert and youthful.
For the upper lid, excess drooping skin and fat deposits contributing to lid puffiness can be removed through a well hidden incision in the natural crease of the upper eyelid. In the lower lid, incisions hidden either below the lower lash line or on the inside of the lower eyelid can be used to remove excess skin and fat deposits, and tighten muscles to achieve a more blended, youthful contour of the lid-cheek junction.
Personal Prescription for Beautiful Eyes
Your eyes are the focal point of your face. So it’s natural to want your eyes to appear as refreshed and youthful as possible. The delicate skin around the eyes is more prone to signs of aging which can include fine lines and wrinkles, loose, excess eyelid skin, puffiness, sallow color, and even thinning of the eyelashes.
Fortunately, there are many surgical and non-surgical cosmetic procedures and treatments that can help bring back that refreshed, bright appearance to your eyes that you are looking for. And fortunately, all these options can be found right here at the Center for Plastic Surgery. Sometimes, patients may just need a single treatment modality to achieve their aesthetic goals. But often, by using several different modalities together, we can achieve even more dramatic yet natural enhancement of your eyes! After a thorough examination and consultation with you, Dr. Eliopoulos will come up with a safe and effective plan to achieve your goals. Dr. Eliopoulos will formulate your own…
Personal Prescription for Beautiful Eyes!
Please read on to learn a bit more about these safe and effective options offered here at the Center for Plastic Surgery.
♦ Eye Creams - As we age, skin loses its elasticity and becomes even thinner due to breakdown of collagen. The skin around the eye is ten times thinner than the skin on your face. This special area really deserves its own skin care product especially formulated to target its unique needs. Here at the Center for Plastic Surgery, we carry 2 great eye creams to easily incorporate into your daily skin care regimen.
- SkinMedica’s TNS Eye Repair - Is the ultimate eye treatment cream formulated with NouriCel-MD® (Human Growth Factors), peptides, high concentrations of vitamins A, C and E and hyaluronic acid to dramatically improve the appearance of the delicate skin around the eyes.
- Obagi’s Elastiderm - Is unique. By using a revolutionary bi-mineral complex called Copper Zinc Malonate, it works to help restore the elasticity around your eyes and reduce visible fine lines and wrinkles.
♦ BOTOX® Cosmetic – As our skin becomes less elastic over time “dynamic” wrinkles from repetitive muscle activity can ultimately result in “static” wrinkles that are present even at rest. Think of this analogy: If you fold a paper in half, and open and refold it in half again 10 times, you will see a crease in the paper that is hard to remove. Similarly, our skin in the outer eye area develops these “creases” or wrinkles often referred to as “crow’s feet”. These wrinkles can be safely and easily treated with BOTOX®. Targeting these muscles of the outer eye with a few tiny injections of BOTOX® temporarily relaxes these muscles. In this way, your outer eye wrinkles are softened, giving a more refreshed, relaxed, and rejuvenated appearance while retaining natural facial expression. Botox® can also be used between the brows to treat deep scowling and furrowing of the brows that can give us a tired, or angry appearance and deep lines often referred to as “our 11’s”. Botox® not only can improve the appearance of existing wrinkles, but it can theoretically work in a preventative way to hopefully slow down the development of wrinkles if used soon enough. In other words, if one begins using Botox® to these areas around and in between the eyes before the onset of those deeper wrinkles, we can potentially slow down the appearance of those deeper lines too, before they become harder to treat. Dr. Eliopoulos treats her patients safely, right in her office. There is minimal discomfort, no down time, and results are seen within 3-7 days, and last up to 3-4 months typically. No wonder Botox® continues to be the most popular non-surgical cosmetic treatment performed!
♦ Fractional Laser Treatment - While eyelid surgery, also known as blepharoplasty, can remove excess skin and fat in the lids, it is not able to specifically address the wrinkles in the outer eye, or fine lines that remain in the lower lid. Botox® can help with the “dynamic wrinkles” in the outer eye, as described above. But our most effective treatment to help with the wrinkles that we have at rest in the eye area is with fractional laser resurfacing. The Ultrapulse Fractional Laser Treatment treats the upper layer of skin to remove unwanted pigmentation, promote new skin regeneration, and improve fine lines and texture, and can also be used to treat more deeply to stimulate new collagen growth to improve the appearance of wrinkles, scars and fine lines. This “fractional” treatment treats a “fraction” of the skin, while leaving bridges of “untouched” skin that reduce healing times and aid in the healing process.
♦ RevitaLash® ADVANCED - What woman doesn’t want fuller eyelashes? Not only do beautiful eyelashes camouflage the signs of aging, but they also enhance the eye’s natural beauty. RevitaLash® ADVANCED is a wonderful cosmetic product containing powerful peptides and soothing botanicals designed to beautify and nourish the eyelashes. This product was developed by an ophthalmologist to give his wife’s eyelashes the look of renewed health, strength, and beauty after she had undergone intensive chemotherapy which left her lashes fragile, sparse and thin. All you need to do is apply a small amount above the upper lash line nightly and watch you eyelashes achieve there full potential!
♦ Latisse® - Available as a monthly prescription from Dr. Eliopoulos which also can enhance the appearance of your lashes, making them appear thicker, fuller, and darker.
