Blepharoplasty, commonly known as an eyelid lift or an eye lift, helps to improve the appearance of the skin around the eyes. Benefits offered by this procedure include:
- Improved Vision. Lifting upper lids helps to improve vision that has been obscured by drooping skin
- Improved Appearance. Lifted lids expose more of the eye, helping to produce a look that is more alert, awake, and attentive
- Reduced Signs of Exhaustion. Dark circles and puffy skin can be removed from underneath the eyes to restore a rested and relaxed appearance
- Reduced Signs of Aging. Removing wrinkles from upper and lower lids helps to create a more youthful and attractive look
Of course, there are individual benefits offered by this procedure that may not apply to everyone. The best way to learn what an eyelid lift can do for you is through a private consultation with Dr. Doyle.
Blepharoplasty can improve the appearance of the eyelids, but it cannot address issues such as crow’s feet and hollowness underneath the eyes. For these, non-surgical options can be used to help enhance your final results.
Injectables such as BOTOX® Cosmetic or Dysport® are ideal for addressing wrinkles next to the eyes (crow’s feet). These can also remove creases in between the eyebrows and give a gentle lift to the brows themselves, all of which are complementary to eyelid surgery.
Dermal fillers, including those made by Juvéderm®, Restylane®, and Sculptra®, can be used to correct sunken skin and hollowness underneath the eyes. These can also be used to add volume to the cheeks, the temples, and the jaw, helping to eliminate wrinkles and improve the appearance of the entire face.
Skin laxity, pigmentation irregularities, fine lines, deep wrinkles, and more can be addressed through non-surgical services. We offer several med spa options that can be used to enhance eyelid surgery. During your initial consultation, Dr. Doyle will carefully evaluate your areas of concern and provide information on all of the services that may help you in reaching your goals.
