Skin’s elasticity goes down over time and leads to sagging. When this occurs in the eye area it can cause you to appear much older. Eyelid surgery, which is technically called blepharoplasty, is now available to correct problems such as: under eye bags, loose eye skin, lower lid creases and puffy lids. It’s recommended you speak with your cosmetic surgeon about blepharoplasty if you’re looking to correct the above. In addition to the appearance problems discussed, you might be experiencing limited vision due to the “heaviness” of your eyelids caused by lost elasticity …this can be helped a lot by this procedure. Depending on the outcome you want, your plastic surgeon might recommend complimentary procedures like a brow lift or facelift. These surgeries are often paired with eyelid surgery to regain that youthful look.
