As we age, our bodies slow down collagen production, which can affect the appearance of our skin, especially the eyes. Loose and sagging skin in the eyelid area can make our faces look older and even affect eyelid function. Eyelid surgery can help restore the appearance of your eyes for a smoother, more youthful-looking appearance.
What is Eyelid Surgery?
Eyelid surgery, or blepharoplasty, reduces the excess skin and fatty tissue of the upper or lower eyelids to rejuvenate the appearance of the eyes, making them appear wider and more awake.
Eyelid surgery can address:
- Loose or sagging upper eyelid skin
- Fatty deposits that cause puffiness
- Bags under the eyes
- Drooping lower eyelids
- Excess skin and fine wrinkles of the lower eyelid
- Double eyelids
Restore Your Youthful Appearance with Eyelid Surgery
As skin ages, it loses its underlying structural support, leading to fat pockets and puffiness in the upper eyelids and the development of bags in the lower eyelids. When we combine the loss of structural support with decreased collagen and elastin production, skin can become slack, and the eyes can develop a tired or sad-looking appearance.
Upper eyelid surgery enhances the appearance of the eyes and can also improve vision by repairing sagging skin that impedes the eyes and hinders sight. Lower eyelid surgery focuses on removing lax skin, correcting bagginess, and smoothing wrinkles, leaving you looking refreshed and rested.
Following your eyelid surgery, you will notice:
- Decreased bags
- Reduced puffiness
- Smoothed wrinkles around the eyes
- Brighter, more youthful-looking eyes
- Refreshed appearance
Eyelid surgery can help to restore your eyes to a more youthful-looking appearance. Often, eyelid surgery is teamed with a brow lift to elevate the brows and smooth forehead wrinkles, providing optimal upper facial rejuvenation results.
