As you age skin elasticity decreases causing skin sagging. When this happens in the area around the eye it can cause you to appear significantly older. Many issues caused by eye skin losing elasticity can now be resolved by plastic surgery. Blepharoplasty (also called eyelid surgery) is effective for many eye aging issues from lower lid bags to puffy lids. If you are wanting to correct eye aging issues, talk to your cosmetic surgeon about eyelid surgery. Though it doesn’t address other aging problems of the eye region such as creases 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 eyelids caused by decreased skin elasticity …this can be helped a great deal by this surgery. Eyelid surgery is very often paired with a brow lift or facelift to reach the desired look. Your plastic surgeon will be able to recommend the best course of action to help you regain that youthful appearance in the eye region.
