As we welcome fall and watch excitedly as the leaves change colors, it’s a natural time to think about transitions and transformations. If you’d like to transform tired, sad-looking eyes, upper eyelid surgery with Dr. Jennifer Parker Porter is your best option. Here, the founder of Chevy Chase Facial Plastic Surgery explains how upper eyelid surgery can help you look revitalized, younger and more attractive — just in time for the holiday season!

Who Can Benefit from Upper Eyelid Surgery?

Upper eyelid surgery is intended for men and women that have noticeable signs of aging in the upper eyelids. This includes:

  • excess, sagging skin that distorts the natural eyelid contours (and sometimes droops over the eyelashes into the line of sight, impairing vision)
  • displaced fat
  • puffiness
  • wrinkles

These problematic features can give the eyes a tired, worried or depressed appearance. They can also change the eyelid surface and make it difficult for women to apply eye makeup.

Your candidacy for upper eyelid surgery should be discussed on a one-on-one basis with Dr. Porter. To find out whether you are a good candidate for surgery, please call (301) 652-8191 and schedule a consultation.

What Upper Eyelid Surgery Accomplishes

Upper eyelid surgery is performed through an incision hidden in the natural folds of the upper lid. This ensures that any scarring from the incision lines is virtually invisible to the eye.

Excess tissue, fat and skin are removed to give the lids a firmer and more youthful contour. If needed, muscle laxity is corrected. Displaced fat is returned to its normal position and the remaining skin is tightened.

Dr. Porter is extremely meticulous as she re-contours the upper eyelids. It is important for her to preserve her patient’s unique sense of beauty while making subtle improvements. After recovering from upper eyelid surgery, your eye area will look more alert, well-rested and brighter. You can look 10 years younger simply by rejuvenating your eyes!

Upper eyelid surgery can be combined with lower eyelid surgery if the lower lids droop, are puffy or have noticeable bags. The incision for lower eyelid surgery is typically made right below the lower lash line or inside the lower eyelid.
