There are several ways in which the passage of time shows on the face. Fine lines may develop around the nose and mouth, or crow’s feet around the eyes. For some people, the concern is that the skin on the upper or lower eyelids, or sometimes both areas, has become very loose and saggy. If you struggle with under eye bags or heavy upper eyelids, you may have tried lotions and serums to nourish and tighten this delicate skin. If you are like most people who have done this, you may be feeling frustrated at the lack of improvement you have been able to achieve.
You have a Choice
In recent years, we have seen a surge in the number of patients seeking blepharoplasty, or eyelid surgery. The minor procedure is performed by Dr. Thom using gentle technique through which a more youthful appearance can be restored. Eyelid surgery may tighten the skin around the eyes by removing excess. It can also eliminate bags by removing the fatty deposits that “poke out” from beneath the skin. Blepharoplasty may be associated with age-related cosmetic concerns, but younger patients who are just tired of looking tired also consult with Dr. Thom regarding this procedure.
Blepharoplasty is a straightforward, outpatient cosmetic surgery that achieves beautiful results. After a short recovery period, patients look more energetic and vibrant. Research even shows that the rejuvenated appearance that comes from eyelid surgery can make a person seem more friendly and approachable. Due to the meticulous technique with which blepharoplasty is performed, results look so natural that even colleagues and close friends of the patient usually cannot tell that “work” has been done.
Dr. Thom offers eyelid surgery for functional and cosmetic improvement. He understands the physical and emotional impact that drooping, puffy, heavy eyelids can have, and he designs the surgical procedure in such a way to meet each patient’s expectations.
Whether you are 22 or 92, you deserve to feel confident about how you look. Your eyelids should also not be a source of frustration related to your vision.
