Eyelid Surgery Minneapolis
Blepharoplasty or Eyelid surgery with Dr. Hoffman in Minneapolis St. Paul can help patients who wish to correct and repair their droopy eyelids. For patients in St. Paul, Minneapolis, a blepharoplasty involves removing any excess skin, muscle tissue, and fat tissue in the eyelids. Same as the other areas of the body, the structural support in the underlying tissues of the eyelids become weak as a person ages. This results in the loss of skin elasticity and causes the fat and excess skin to accumulate below the eyelids that makes it droop. Patients can look tired and old because of this condition even if they are well into their 30’s. Aside from having a huge impact on your appearance, in severe cases, a drooping eyelid can sometimes impair the eyesight. A blepharoplasty can easily address these concerns and can provide our patients with a younger and fresher appearance.

In his years of practice in St. Paul, Minneapolis, Dr. James Hoffman has seen numerous cases that were easily resolved by a blepharoplasty procedure. If a droopy eyelid makes it difficult for you to open or lower your eyelid then you might want to consider getting a blepharoplasty. This procedure may also be recommended for patients with puffy and baggy upper and lower eyelids. A blepharoplasty can also be a good solution for patients who have eyelids that droop so low that they show too much of the white of their eyes. These conditions can make a person look old and weary, and a blepharoplasty can combat these normal signs of aging and help patients in achieve the youthful appearance that they have always wanted.
