The skin on the eyelids is very thin and delicate, which is why it is also prone to wrinkles and sagging with age. Excess droopy skin on the upper eyelid and sagging skin and tissue under the eyes are common issues, making you look tired and years older. To give the eyes a more youthful and alert appearance, eyelid lift surgery, or blepharoplasty, is the solution. Eden Plastic Surgery Institute can perform eyelid lift surgery on the upper or lower eyelids at our medical clinic in Miami.
Aging is the most common reason for sagging or loose skin and tissue around the eyes. However, genetics, lifestyle and other factors can all play a role in the firmness of the eyelid skin and tissue. Droopy upper eyelids from ptosis or dermatochalasis can occur at any age, but these conditions can worsen with aging skin. The same is true for the lower eyelids. Some people are more prone to eye bags, even when they are younger, but the issue becomes pronounced with aging. Eyelid lift surgery can correct both upper and lower eyelid sagging and rejuvenate the appearance of the eyes.
Eyelid Rejuvenation with Blepharoplasty
Aging skin loses elasticity and volume, becoming thinner and looser. Both the upper and lower eyelids are susceptible to sagging skin that can cause hooded eyelids or bags under the eyes. Blepharoplasty on the upper, lower or both eyelids can remove the excess skin and fatty tissue while tightening and firming the eyelids. For many individuals, this can make the eyes and face look years younger and more energetic. Blepharoplasty is often combined with other facial rejuvenation procedures like a brow lift, cheek lift or facelift.
If your eyes have loose or sagging skin on the upper or lower eyelids, consider the benefits of blepharoplasty.
