Skin’s elasticity lessens as you age and leads to sagging. Sagging skin in areas surrounding the eye, can cause you to look much older. Eyelid surgery, which is technically named blepharoplasty, is now available to resolve problems like: under eye bags, loose eye skin, lower lid creases and puffy lids. Though it doesn’t takle other aging problems of the eye region like wrinkles and dark circles, the change is noticeable. In addition to the appearance issues discussed, you may be experiencing impaired vision due to the “heaviness” of your eyelids caused by decreased skin elasticity …this can be helped a great deal by this procedure. Depending on the outcome you desire, your plastic surgeon may suggest complimentary surgeries like a brow lift or facelift. These surgeries are often combined with eyelid surgery to regain that youthful appearance.
