Skin naturally sags as you get older. This is caused by skin losing its former elasticity. When skin sagging occurs around the eye region, it creates the appearance that you’re older than you actually are. Eyelid surgery, which is technically named blepharoplasty, is now available to correct problems like: under eye bags, loose eye skin, lower lid creases and puffy lids. Though it does not takle other aging issues of the eye area like creases and dark circles, the change is noticeable. In addition to the appearance problems discussed, 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 procedure. Eyelid surgery is very often combined with a brow lift or facelift to create the desired results. Your cosmetic surgeon will be able to recommend the best course of action to help you regain that youthful appearance in the eye region.
