Time takes a toll on our bodies, as we age our skin does too. Gravity starts to set in and years of smiling and frowning have created their mark with lines and wrinkles, which get deeper by the year.
At Bergstrom Eye & Laser Clinic, we encourage good nutrition, diet and exercise to take care of the inside and we offer several cosmetic treatments to take care of, enhance and rejuvenate your outside.
The variety of customized non-surgical solutions we offer for both men and women are designed to erase, as well as slowdown the early signs of aging. These popular cosmetic procedures can help rejuvenate the skin and reduce the effects of the sun, aging, and some facial skin disorders bringing about smoother, younger, healthier-looking skin. Treatments are safe, effective and convenient.
Eye and Eyelid Surgeries
Blepharoplasty is a common surgical procedure to remove excess eyelid skin that is impairing eyesight. The surgery involves the repositioning or removal of excessive upper eyelid tissue. Blepharoplsty can be performed on both the upper and lower eyelids, depending on the nature and severity of the condition. Generally, the excess upper eyelid skin will hang down over the eyelashes and block your peripheral vision or the outer and upper parts of your field of vision.
Patients that have less severe excess skin under the eyelids may opt to have the procedure performed for cosmetic reasons, especially if they want to remove the look of “bags” under their eyes.
The procedure is performed through external incisions along the fold of the eyelid. The incisions are made at the creases of the upper eyelids below the lashes, or on the inside surface of the lower lids. Swelling and bruising may be present for a week or two following surgery, but will disappear in the next several weeks.
Important NOTE: Many eyelid surgeries may be covered by insurance depending on the situation. The only way to determine if eyelid surgery is truly a medical necessity is to visit our office for a consultation with Dr. Bergstrom.
Common eyelid conditions like ptosis, or droopy lids are generally age related. Ptosis can be present at birth or it can develop as a result of aging or injury. The condition can affect the levator muscles that lift the eyelid.
Ptosis is generally treated through surgery. Dr. Bergstrom will tighten your levator muscles to lift the eyelids and improve your vision if your droopy lid was previously blocking your vision.
Dr. Bergstrom performs more Blepharoplasty/Ptosis surgery than any other regional surgeon and has done hundreds over the last 15 years.
