As you get older skin elasticity decreases causing skin sagging. When this happens in the eye area it can cause you to appear significantly older. Surgery is available for both upper and lower lid issues. It resolves issues such as; puffy lids, under eye bags, lower lid creases, and loose skin. Some other aging problems like wrinkles or dark circles cannot be corrected with blepharoplasty. But, the changes can be dramatic. In addition to the appearance problems addressed, you may be experiencing impaired vision due to the “heaviness” of your eyelids caused by decreased skin elasticity …this can be helped quite a bit by this procedure. Eyelid surgery is very often combined with a brow lift or facelift to create the desired results. Your cosmetic surgeon will be able to recommend the best path to help you regain that youthful appearance in the eye area.
