Skin’s elasticity decreases as you age and leads to sagging. When skin sagging occurs in the eye region, it creates the look that you are older than you actually are. Surgery is available for both upper and lower lid problems. It corrects problems like; puffy lids, under eye bags, lower lid wrinkles, and loose skin. It’s recommended you talk to your cosmetic surgeon about blepharoplasty if you’re looking to resolve the above. In addition to the appearance issues discussed, you may be experiencing limited vision due to the “heaviness” of your lids caused by decreased skin elasticity …this can be helped a lot by this surgery. Depending on the outcome you want, your cosmetic surgeon might recommend complimentary procedures like a brow lift or facelift. These surgeries are often combined with eyelid surgery to regain that youthful appearance.
