As you get older skin elasticity is reduced causing skin sagging. When this happens in the area around the eye it can cause you to look significantly older. Many problems created by eye skin losing elasticity can now be resolved by plastic surgery. Blepharoplasty (also called eyelid surgery) is effective for many eye aging problems from lower lid bags to puffy lids. If you’re wanting to correct eye aging issues, talk to your cosmetic surgeon about eyelid surgery. Some other aging problems like creases or dark circles can’t be corrected with blepharoplasty. But, the changes can be dramatic. In addition to the appearance problems addressed, you might be experiencing limited vision due to the “heaviness” of your lids caused by decreased skin elasticity …this can be helped a lot by this surgery. Your plastic surgeon might recommend this as a companion to other surgeries such as brow and facelifts.
