As you get older skin elasticity decreases causing skin sagging. When skin sagging occurs in the eye region, it creates the appearance that you are older than you actually are. Surgery is available for both upper and lower lid problems. It resolves issues like; puffy lids, under eye bags, lower lid wrinkles, and loose skin. Though it does not address other aging issues of the eye area such as creases 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 quite a bit by this surgery. Eyelid surgery is very often combined with a brow lift or facelift to reach the desired results. Your plastic surgeon will be able to recommend the best course of action to help you regain that youthful appearance in the eye area.
