Skin naturally sags as you get older. This is caused by skin losing its former elasticity. Sagging skin in areas surrounding the eye, can cause you to appear much older. Many issues created by eye skin losing elasticity can now be corrected by cosmetic surgery. Blepharoplasty (also called eyelid surgery) is effective for many eye aging issues from lower lid bags to puffy lids. If you’re wanting to correct eye aging problems, talk to your cosmetic surgeon about eyelid surgery. Though it doesn’t address other aging problems of the eye area like wrinkles and dark circles, the change is noticeable. In addition to the appearance issues addressed, you may be experiencing limited vision due to the “heaviness” of your eyelids caused by decreased skin elasticity …this can be helped a lot by this surgery. Your plastic surgeon might suggest this as a companion to other procedures such as brow and facelifts.
