Your eyes are one of the first things people notice about you – especially in the age of masks! Droopy upper eyelids, sagging lower eyelids, or dark under-eye circles can all make you look older than you really are.
Whether you want to improve your appearance or are experiencing functional problems with your eyelids, eyelid surgery can help rejuvenate your eye area. Surgery can be performed on the upper lids, lower lids, or both.
Eyelid surgery can treat a number of issues. It can help with loose or sagging skin that creates folds or disturbs the natural contour of the eyelid (sometimes impairing vision), fatty deposits that appear as puffiness in the eyelids, bags underneath the eyes, drooping lower eyelids (that reveal white below the iris), or excess skin and fine wrinkles of the lower eyelid. The results can provide a more rested and youthful appearance, which can lead to more self-confidence.
If you have a low eyebrow, a brow lift may also be recommended to help complete the improvement of the upper lids. A brow lift lifts the eyebrows and reduces lines and furrows on the forehead by treating the brow muscles and forehead. The use of injectables such as Botox or Juvederm can also be used to enhance your surgical result.
Dr. Poulter specializes in procedures such as eyelid surgery, combining his surgeon’s skill with an artful eye to create beautiful, natural looking results. He is very conscientious of where incisions are placed. For an upper eyelid surgery, the incision goes in the eyelid crease (so you do not see it at all when the eye is open). The lower lid incision is well-hidden, just below the lashes.
