Skin naturally sags as you age. This happens because of skin losing its former elasticity. Sagging skin in areas around the eye, causes you to appear significantly older. Surgery is available for both upper and lower lid problems. It resolves issues like; puffy lids, under eye bags, lower lid creases, and loose skin. Some other aging problems like wrinkles or dark circles can’t be corrected with blepharoplasty. But, the changes can be significant. In addition to the appearance issues addressed, you might be experiencing impaired vision due to the “heaviness” of your lids caused by decreased skin elasticity …this can be helped quite a bit by this procedure. Your plastic surgeon may suggest this as a companion to other surgeries such as brow and facelifts.
