Skin’s elasticity decreases as you age and leads to sagging. Sagging skin in areas surrounding the eye, causes you to look much older. Many issues caused by eye skin losing elasticity can now be resolved by plastic surgery. Blepharoplasty (also called eyelid surgery) is effective for many eye aging issues from lower lid bags to puffy lids. If you’re wanting to resolve eye aging problems, speak with your plastic surgeon about eyelid surgery. Though it doesn’t takle other aging issues of the eye region such as wrinkles and dark circles, the change is noticeable. In addition to the appearance issues discussed, you might be experiencing limited vision due to the “heaviness” of your lids caused by decreased skin elasticity …this can be helped a great deal by this procedure. Depending on the outcome you want, your cosmetic surgeon might suggest complimentary procedures like a brow lift or facelift. These procedures are often combined with eyelid surgery to regain that youthful look.
