The eyes may be one of the first areas on your face to show the signs of aging. Over time, loss of collagen can cause skin to be less elastic and less firm. Volume can be lost, allowing skin and underlying tissue to droop and sag. Fat may begin to accumulate under the skin in the wrong places. When this occurs around your eyes, it can make you look older, tired, and maybe even a little depressed.
Lower eyelid surgery can be used to remove puffiness and bags from underneath the eyes. Any incisions will be hidden just beneath the lash line or inside of the lower lid. It is important to note that lower eyelid surgery will not change discoloration, dark circles, or crow’s feet.
Upper eyelid surgery is done to remove the fat that may build up and result in sagging of the skin beneath the brow bone. Skin that droops over the upper eyelid can be tightened to create a more wide-eyed expression that helps you to look more refreshed.
