As we age, excess skin forms in the eye area and the skin loses elasticity. Fatty tissue can also accumulate under the skin. Eyes start to look older, tired, wrinkled and puffy. Eye lift surgery refreshes the appearance of the eyes.
Eye lifts surgery, otherwise known as blepharoplasty, removes excess skin, muscle and fat from upper and lower eyelids. It can reduce baggy skin under the eyes as well as drooping upper eyelids.
Blepharoplasty will sometimes be performed to treat a medical condition known as ptosis (drooping eyelid), which is caused by poor muscle tone or nerve damage. More often, though, patients undergo eyelid surgery to counter the ageing effects of time on the eyes.
