As we get older, there are a number of areas on the body that may begin to give away our age. One of the most obvious and common of these areas is the eyelids. The skin around the eye is incredibly delicate, so it’s much easier for it to lose its elasticity over time. Also, since the eyes are responsible for showing so much of our emotion, eyelid skin is constantly being crinkled, shifted, and scrunched which will inevitably result in wrinkles and bagginess at some point. Factors such as genetics and preexisting health conditions will also affect how, and to what degree, your eyelids will wrinkle and sag as they age. However, the good news is that no matter what the cause of your eyelid wrinkles, plastic surgery can easily help you turn back the hands of time. How Exactly Does Plastic Surgery Correct Eyelid Wrinkling and Bagginess? Eyelid surgery – or blepharoplasty – can encompass a number of different techniques. Most commonly, extra skin or excess fat deposits will be removed or reduced in order to produce a tighter, more open-eyed appearance. This can be done on the upper lid, the lower lid, or both. Sometimes tightening procedures are performed on one or both of the eyelids by themselves as well. Bags, wrinkles, and other unsightly flaws can all be corrected using these procedures. Every Blepharoplasty procedure is tailored specifically for each patient.  Discuss with your plastic surgeon what will be involved when you arrive for your initial consultation. Is Blepharoplasty Right for Me? If you’re an adult in good health whose eyelid tissue and surrounding muscle structure are generally in good condition, then you are likely a good candidate for eyelid surgery. You shouldn’t be suffering from any serious illnesses. Your expectations as far as the results of your surgery should be realistic.
