Are you starting to look a little older than you feel? Are your eyes telling the world that you’re tired, stressed or just not as kind are you really are? These are all common complaints of patients who come to Dr. Jennifer Porter seeking the surgical correction of their drooping eyelids.
Drooping eyelids tend to occur naturally over time as gravity sets in and patients age. Sagging skin can accumulate above the eye from the upper eyelid or fall below the eye creating deep bags and wrinkles under the eyes. No matter what condition you find your eyes in, either eyelid or both can be safely and beautifully lifted to instantly create a more youthful and alert appearance.
Also known a blepharoplasty, an eyelid lift can be performed easily in our office under mild anesthesia. Within and hour or just a little longer, the skin around your eyes can be tightened and lifted. Excess tissue can be removed if necessary to further improve the quality of your results.
Sagging eyelid skin cannot only create cosmetic concerns for patients; in fact skin can often sag to the point of intruding into a patient’s line of sight. If your vision becomes compromised in any way as a result of sagging eyelids you should contact Dr. Porter immediately. In fact, if this is the case, your health insurance may cover a portion of your corrective surgery.
