Skin’s elasticity decreases over time and leads to sagging. When this happens in the area around the eye it can cause you to look significantly older. Many issues caused by eye skin losing elasticity can now be resolved by cosmetic surgery. Blepharoplasty (also called eyelid surgery) is effective for many eye aging problems from lower lid bags to puffy lids. If you’re looking to resolve eye aging problems, speak with your cosmetic surgeon about eyelid surgery. Though it doesn’t address other aging issues of the eye area such as creases and dark circles, the change is noticeable. In addition to the appearance problems addressed, you might be experiencing impaired vision due to the “heaviness” of your lids caused by lost elasticity …this can be helped quite a bit by this procedure. Eyelid surgery is very often paired with a brow lift or facelift to create the desired results. Your plastic surgeon will be able to suggest the best course of action to help you regain that youthful appearance in the eye area.
