Enhance Your Appearance with Eyelid Surgery

Our eyes are not only windows to the soul but also a significant factor in our overall facial aesthetics. The appearance of heavy or drooping eyelids can create a tired and aged look. However, with the help of expert ophthalmic plastic and reconstructive surgeons like Dr. R. Jeffrey Hofmann, you can achieve a dramatic transformation.

Eyelid surgery, also known as blepharoplasty, is a small yet powerful surgical procedure that can profoundly impact your overall facial appearance. By addressing excess skin and fat pockets in the upper and lower eyelids, this procedure can rejuvenate and refresh your look.

Upper Eyelid Blepharoplasty

This is a procedure which utilizes a small incision hidden in the eyelid crease. The skin is tightened and fat pockets are trimmed and contoured. The eyelid crease is then re-created to optimize the symmetry of the eyelid platform. Oftentimes adjunctive procedures such as browpexy (sutures to help support the eyebrow) and muscle tightening (to lift the lashline) are carried out at the same time through the same small incision. The procedure is done with a local anesthetic, as an outpatient, with minimal downtime.

Lower Eyelid Blepharoplasty

Lower eyelid blepharoplasty is a procedure that may utilize a small incision hidden just below the lashes or sometimes is done with no skin incision at all (by approaching through the inside of the lower eyelid). Fat pockets are contoured and repositioned to reduce “bags” and decrease “dark circles” around the eyes. Other adjunctive procedures may be carried out simultaneously through the same small incision, such as tightening the tendon of the lower eyelid or lifting the cheek fat pad to help smooth the transition from the eyelid to the cheek.

Trust your eyes to the expertise of Dr. R. Jeffrey Hofmann. They are here to guide you through every step of the process, ensuring your comfort, safety, and satisfaction. Experience the transformative power of eyelid surgery and unlock a more youthful and refreshed version of yourself.
