Skin’s elasticity decreases as you age and leads to 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 called blepharoplasty, is now available to resolve problems like: under eye bags, loose eye skin, lower lid wrinkles and puffy lids. Though it does not address other aging issues of the eye area like creases and dark circles, the change is noticeable. Another reason to consider correction is that increased heaviness of lids can impair your vision. Your cosmetic surgeon might recommend this as a companion to other surgeries like brow and facelifts.
