Are you concerned about looking tired and older in spite of how young or energetic you may feel? For many people, one of the most prominent signs of aging is bags around the eyes. With these bags, you can appear sleepy all the time. Eyelid surgery is a cosmetic procedure that can give you a rejuvenated and refreshed appearance.
Eyelid surgery, technically known as a blepharoplasty, is categories in two parts—the lower and upper eyelids. The upper eyelid typically experiences wrinkling and sagging due to a loss of skin elasticity. The lower eyelid often develops bags or a “tear trough” that is the result of fat deposits in the eyelids.
Lower eyelid surgery is not the same procedure as upper eyelid surgery, as it may include liposuction and incisions that may be made on the inside of the eyelid to hide scarring. Consulting with a board-certified plastic surgeon like Dr. Perhez Jaffer is a good way of determining the best course of action.
