The eyes are one of the first parts of the face to show the signs of aging. This is due to a number of factors including, genetics, sun exposure and the natural aging process.
As we age, we begin to notice changes that contribute to an overall tired look. In the upper and lower eyelids we begin to notice sagging and loose skin, and these structure begin to lose their firm texture. At the same time, fat deposits begin to bulge forward as we develop lax eyelid structures. In general, women have a hard time applying makeup like they used to, while men and women find that they look more tired than they actually feel. Others feel that while the rest of their face looks youthful, their puffy eyes give away their true age, or make them look older than they are.
Blepharoplasty surgery can be performed on the upper eyelids, lower eyelids or both. Patients are typically very satisfied with the results of their blepharoplasty surgery and appreciate that it requires minimal downtime. Following blepharoplasty surgery, your eyes will appear more youthful, rested and less puffy.
