Skin naturally sags as you get older. This is caused by 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 problems such as; puffy lids, under eye bags, lower lid wrinkles, and loose skin. Some other aging issues like wrinkles or dark circles cannot be corrected with blepharoplasty. But, the changes can be dramatic. In addition to the appearance problems discussed, you might be experiencing limited vision due to the “heaviness” of your eyelids caused by lost elasticity …this can be helped quite a bit by this procedure. Depending on the results you desire, your cosmetic surgeon might suggest complimentary surgeries like a brow lift or facelift. These surgeries are often combined with eyelid surgery to regain that youthful appearance.
