So much of communication occurs eye to eye, without the need for the mouth or ear. What messages are you sending? If you are interested in improving the appearance or function of your eyelids, Dr. Nimtz can help. A variety of procedures can be used to treat saggy or loose skin, wrinkling of the eyelids, puffiness or bags under the eyes, and other contour irregularities.


Nothing makes you look old quite the way that puffy or baggy eyelids do, or excess eyelid skin that flaps down, obscuring a clear view of your eyes. It is a natural byproduct of gravity and aging, but unfortunately, the cosmetic effect can be to add many years to your appearance. If you want to reverse these effects of aging, then take the time now to set up your consultation with Dr. Nimtz, and find out if you are a candidate for an eyelid lift. Ptosis repair is a type of eyelid lift procedure that Dr. Nimtz may recommend to tighten the muscles under your upper eyelids to reveal a fresh, revitalized appearance.

Meet Dr. Nimtz


Set up your consultation with Dr. Jared Nimtz today, and find out if you are a candidate for an eyelid lift. If you feel like the sparkle in your eyes and your natural beauty are being clouded over by eyelids in need of a lift, then there are a variety of different procedures and treatments that Dr. Nimtz can utilize to perform an eyelid lift procedure. During your consultation, based on your specific needs and desires, Dr. Nimtz will develop a customized solution that represents the ideal eyelid lift to restore your youthfulness.


During your consultation, Dr. Nimtz will review the specific procedure or treatment that he recommends for your eyelid lift. In some cases, a blepharoplasty may be recommended by Dr. Nimtz, which generally involves the removal of drooping tissue. When performed on your upper eyelid, it will make your upper eyelid and eyelashes much more visible. Ptosis repair, which gives you an eyelid lift by tightening your eyelid muscles, is a quick, outpatient procedure that generally takes less than two hours to complete. During your procedure, tiny incisions are made through which the muscles are tightened. Your comfort will be assured during your procedure with your choice of local anesthetic without sedation, local anesthetic with some sedation, or full general anesthesia; however, if you do choose to remain awake during your surgery, you will not feel any discomfort aside from very gentle tugging every now and then. Your recovery will take about two weeks, and during your healing process, you may experience some pain, and your eyes may feel sticky, itchy, watery, or dry, but Dr. Nimtz will provide you with eye drops, ointments or pain medicine to relieve these conditions.
