Skin’s elasticity decreases over time and leads to sagging. When skin sagging happens in the eye area, it creates the appearance that you are older than you actually are. Eyelid surgery, which is technically named blepharoplasty, is now available to resolve issues like: under eye bags, loose eye skin, lower lid creases and puffy lids. Though it doesn’t takle 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 impaired vision due to the “heaviness” of your eyelids caused by lost elasticity …this can be helped a lot by this surgery. Your cosmetic surgeon might recommend this as a companion to other procedures such as brow and facelifts.
