Don’t Let Your Eyes Reveal Your Age

Your eyes are often one of the first features people notice about you. Drooping upper eyelids, sagging lower eyelids, or dark under-eye circles can prematurely age your appearance.

Whether you want to improve your appearance or are experiencing functional issues with your eyelids, blepharoplasty (commonly known as eyelid surgery) can help rejuvenate your eye area. This procedure can target the upper lids, lower lids, or both.

Eyelid surgery addresses various concerns, including loose or sagging skin that disrupts the eyelid’s natural contour, potentially obstructing vision. It can also address fatty deposits causing puffiness, under-eye bags, drooping lower eyelids, and excess skin with fine wrinkles. The outcome typically yields a more refreshed and youthful look, fostering increased self-confidence.

For individuals with a low eyebrow, a brow lift may complement the improvement achieved with upper lid surgery. A lift elevates the eyebrows and diminishes forehead lines and furrows by targeting the brow muscles and forehead. Additionally, injectables like Botox or Juvederm may also enhance surgical results.

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.
