Skin naturally sags as you get older. This happens because of skin losing its former elasticity. When this occurs in the area around the eye it can cause you to appear significantly older. Eyelid surgery, which is technically named blepharoplasty, is now available to resolve issues such as: under eye bags, loose eye skin, lower lid wrinkles and puffy lids. Some other aging problems like creases or dark circles cannot be fixed with blepharoplasty. But, the changes can be significant. In addition to the appearance issues addressed, you might be experiencing limited vision due to the “heaviness” of your lids caused by lost elasticity …this can be helped quite a bit by this surgery. Depending on the results you desire, your cosmetic surgeon may suggest complimentary procedures like a brow lift or facelift. These procedures are often paired with eyelid surgery to regain that youthful look.
