Sagging, puffy or wrinkled eyelids are a common sign of aging that can make you look tired, sad, or angry. In addition, you may also experience vision troubles as a result. To address these issues, you can consider eyelid surgery, also known as blepharoplasty. If any of the following issues are affecting you, eyelid surgery may be a suitable procedure to correct them.
1. You have sagging upper or lower eyelids
Sagging eyelids and excess loose skin are a relatively common sign of aging. Skin loses its elasticity over time, so the thin and delicate skin on the eyelids can start to wrinkle and sag. This sign of aging can run in families.
2. Your sight is impaired by baggy eyelids
Drooping upper eyelids may impair vision if they sag into your line of vision. Blepharoplasty removes the excess tissue and may help restore unobstructed sight.
3. Your lower eyelids are puffy
Fat pads in the lower lid area can bulge forward as we age, causing the lower lid area to look puffy. Contouring of these fat pads can improve contour.
4. You have dark circles under your eyes or deep « tear troughs »
Lower lid surgery can reposition the fat pads and help smooth the transition between lower lid and cheek.
5. You wear eye makeup, but you cant see it
When your upper lid skin is loose enough to cause folds, it’s hard to see your carefully applied makeup.
6. You look tired when you’re not
Extra upper lid skin or puffy lower lids can make you look tired when you’re not. Eyelid surgery can help your eyes look refreshed, so your look matches how you feel.
