As you age skin elasticity decreases causing skin sagging. When skin sagging occurs around the eye region, it creates the appearance 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. Some other aging problems like creases or dark circles cannot be corrected with blepharoplasty. But, the changes can be dramatic. In addition to the appearance problems addressed, you might be experiencing impaired vision due to the “heaviness” of your lids caused by decreased skin elasticity …this can be helped a lot by this procedure. Depending on the results you desire, your cosmetic surgeon may suggest complimentary procedures like a brow lift or facelift. These procedures are often combined with eyelid surgery to regain that youthful look.
