Skin naturally sags as you get older. This happens because of skin losing its former elasticity. Sagging skin in areas near the eye, can cause you to appear significantly older. Eyelid surgery, which is technically named blepharoplasty, is now available to resolve problems such as: under eye bags, loose eye skin, lower lid wrinkles and puffy lids. Though it does not takle other aging problems 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 limited vision due to the “heaviness” of your eyelids caused by decreased skin elasticity …this can be helped a great deal by this procedure. Eyelid surgery is very often combined with a brow lift or facelift to create the desired outcome. Your plastic surgeon will be able to recommend the best path to help you regain that youthful appearance in the eye region.
