As you age skin elasticity decreases causing skin sagging. Sagging skin in areas surrounding the eye, causes you to appear significantly older. 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. Some other aging problems like wrinkles or dark circles can’t be fixed 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 eyelids caused by decreased skin elasticity …this can be helped a great deal by this procedure. Your cosmetic surgeon might recommend this as a companion to other procedures such as brow and facelifts.
