Here at our Minneapolis plastic surgery practice, an eyelid surgery called blepharoplasty has helped men and women significantly reduce excess baggage under the eyes, look well-rested, and improve their overall look. Not to mention prevent the occurrence of vision loss brought about by overly drooping eyelids.

Blepharoplasty for a Brighter, Tighter, and Refreshed Eye Area!

An eyelid lift by Dr. Hoffman will help you achieve a well-rested look in your face, giving off that youthful glow that friends and family will surely notice. How is it possible? By and large, blepharoplasty does the following:

  • remove excess skin of both upper and lower eyelids
  • remove, reduce, or reposition excess fat around the eye area
  • tighten loose eyelid skin

Despite meticulous skin care and eye care, puffiness and wrinkles around the eye area are still inevitable particularly if it runs in the family. This is why blepharoplasty is an ideal option if you’ve done everything to improve that droopy and petered out look in your eyes.

What to Expect During Consultations

During your personal consultation with Dr. Hoffman, your cosmetic goals, preferences, and expectations will be thoroughly discussed. Afterwards, your medical history and previous treatments will also be tackled one by one. With blepharoplasty, you may have to put certain conditions under control before getting an eyelid lift. These conditions include glaucoma, thyroid problems, cardiovascular disease, tear duct problems, and dry eye syndrome.

In addition, the following will be assessed:

  • bone structure
  • facial soft tissue status
  • skin tone and texture around the eye area
  • muscle dynamics around the area

Furthermore, Dr. Hoffman will discuss the details of the procedure and carefully review each stage with you. In some cases, he will recommend other procedures to be performed with your eyelid lift for a more desirable outcome such as fat transfer, chemical peels, or laser procedures.
