Patients in the Fargo, ND area seeking premier eye care solutions are welcome to book an appointment with the team at Thom Eye and Laser Clinic. Dr. Steve Thom and his team offer a wide range of treatments and services, including cosmetic eyelid surgery, or “blepharoplasty.”
What is cosmetic eyelid surgery?
The skin around the eyes is extremely thin and is often exposed to the elements. It is impacted faster than any other area of the body with aging. It is normal for patients to notice problems such as sagging, wrinkling, and puffiness on the upper and lower lids. With cosmetic eyelid surgery, Dr. Steve Thom can improve the appearance of the eyes and help patients restore their youthful appearance. Cosmetic eyelid surgery is commonly performed with the team of Thom Eye and Laser Clinic, and is a highly requested procedure for individuals trying to combat the signs of aging.
What occurs during cosmetic eyelid surgery?
During blepharoplasty, excess skin on the eyelid is removed and the area is resutured. This is done along the natural crease of the eyelid to reduce the appearance of scarring afterwards. By removing excess tissue, the doctor can address sagging that not only impacts one’s appearance, but can reduce one’s field of vision. Most patients find that excess skin impairs one’s eyesight and can become a condition that impacts their quality of life.
Who is a candidate for cosmetic eyelid surgery?
Any adult patient who wants to address sagging or excess skin around the eyes may be considered an appropriate candidate for blepharoplasty. The best way to know for sure is to schedule a consultation appointment with the team at Thom Eye and Laser Clinic and undergo a thorough evaluation with our team. Patients can discuss the goals they would like to achieve and their medical history during this examination.
