The eyes are often the area where the first signs of aging begin to appear. They are also one of the most identifiable features of the face and the first part of the face noticed during eye contact.
As you grow older, the skin around the eyes begins to sag and become redundant, often creating a heaviness to the eye and a tired look. Addressing the excess skin of the upper eyelid is the goal of upper eyelid blepharoplasty and can help patients appear less tired, refreshed, and more youthful.
Oftentimes, patients also present with bulging in the lower eyelid or a crease between the lower eyelid and cheek. This can present as early as your late twenties or early thirties. Lower eyelid blepharoplasty corrects the bulging in the lower eyelid and any excess fat can be used to fill in the crease between the cheek and lower eyelid to restore a refreshed and more youthful look.
