As you get older skin elasticity decreases causing skin sagging. When skin sagging happens around the eye region, it creates the look that you’re older than you actually are. Eyelid surgery, which is technically named blepharoplasty, is now available to correct problems such as: under eye bags, loose eye skin, lower lid creases and puffy lids. Though it doesn’t address other aging problems of the eye area such as wrinkles and dark circles, the change is noticeable. In addition to the appearance problems addressed, 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. Your plastic surgeon might recommend this as a companion to other surgeries such as brow and facelifts.
