Skin’s elasticity decreases as you age and leads to sagging. Sagging skin in areas near the eye, causes you to appear much older. Many issues caused by eye skin losing elasticity can now be corrected by cosmetic surgery. Blepharoplasty (also called eyelid surgery) is effective for many eye aging problems from lower lid bags to puffy lids. If you are looking to correct eye aging problems, talk to your plastic surgeon about eyelid surgery. Some other aging issues like wrinkles or dark circles can’t be corrected with blepharoplasty. But, the changes can be dramatic. In addition to the appearance problems discussed, you may be experiencing impaired vision due to the “heaviness” of your lids caused by decreased skin elasticity …this can be helped a great deal by this procedure. Depending on the results you desire, your cosmetic surgeon might suggest complimentary surgeries like a brow lift or facelift. These procedures are often combined with eyelid surgery to regain that youthful appearance.
