Oculoplastics

Are you seeking eyelid surgery or eye rejuvenation physicians in Minnesota? Whether you are looking for non-surgical cosmetic treatment options or surgery of the eye region, Minnesota Eye Consultants has fellowship trained oculoplastic surgeons who are experts in this field.

Procedures like BOTOX Cosmetic and Dermal fillers are non-surgical and very cost-effective ways to refresh and rejuvenate facial skin, offering the appearance of younger, less tired looking eyes. We encourage you to schedule an appointment with one of our specialists to determine what options are best for you.

Correction of mild to moderate brow ptosis can be accomplished through incisions directly above the brows, in the forehead creases, or at the hairline. These techniques are most effective if the brow ptosis involves predominantly the central area of the forehead.

Cosmetic procedures are a popular way to enhance the appearance and condition of the face and skin. One such procedure is blepharoplasty, which can effectively address excess skin and fat in the eyelids. Hyaluronic Acid injections are another option that can restore elasticity and volume, while BOTOX® is known for minimizing facial expression lines. If you’re looking to promote eyelash growth, you can try LATISSE®. Additionally, companies like ZO SKIN HEALTH: OBAGI offer skincare systems designed to manage and improve common skin issues in adults.

What is an Oculoplastic Surgeon?

Ophthalmic Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery is a specialized area of Ophthalmology. Our Oculoplastic Surgeons have completed an additional 2-year fellowship training following their ophthalmology residency through the American Society of Ophthalmic Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery (ASOPRS). While general plastic surgeons offer an array of treatments for the entire body, our surgeons strictly perform procedures around the eye and associated structures, making them experts in their field.

Oculoplastic surgeons perform procedures such as the repair of droopy eyelids, blepharoplasty, repair of tear duct obstructions, orbital fracture repairs, orbital tumors, removal of tumors around the eyes, thyroid eye disease, and eyelid reconstruction. The oculoplastic surgeons at Minnesota Eye Consultants also perform facial rejuvenation procedures including upper and lower eyelid lifts and endoscopic brow and forehead lifts. Our oculoplastic surgeons also have extensive training and expertise in the use of BOTOX Cosmetic, Xeomin, and dermal fillers such as Juvederm.
