As you get older skin elasticity decreases causing skin sagging. Sagging skin in areas surrounding the eye, can cause you to look much older. Surgery is available for both upper and lower lid issues. It resolves issues like; puffy lids, under eye bags, lower lid creases, and loose skin. Though it does not takle other aging problems of the eye area such as wrinkles and dark circles, the change is noticeable. In addition to the appearance issues discussed, you might be experiencing impaired vision due to the “heaviness” of your lids caused by lost elasticity …this can be helped a lot by this procedure. Your plastic surgeon may recommend this as a companion to other surgeries such as brow and facelifts.
