As you age skin elasticity decreases causing skin sagging. When skin sagging occurs in the eye area, it creates the look that you are 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 region such as wrinkles and dark circles, the change is noticeable. Another reason to consider correction is that increased heaviness of lids can impair your vision. Your plastic surgeon might recommend this as a companion to other surgeries like brow and facelifts.
