How to Turn Back the Clock with Eyelid Surgery

Man looking at wrinklesYour facial features are one of the first things people notice about you, so naturally you want to make a good first impression. Age-related changes such as drooping eyelids and bags under your eyes can be hard on your self-confidence and make you appear older than you feel.

If this sounds familiar, you may be wondering if eyelid surgery can help you look younger again. Here’s a look at how eyelid surgery just may help you turn back the clock on the aging process and restore your face to its naturally youthful, vibrant look.

Facial Changes with Age

Your upper and lower eyelids are commonly affected by age. The elasticity in your skin cells decreases as you grow older, causing your upper eyelids to droop lower over your eyes and your lower lids to become puffy and saggy. You may also notice wrinkles forming around the corners of your eyes, commonly known as “crow’s feet.”

While these changes occur in nearly everybody, pronounced aging around the eyes can make you look prematurely old beyond your actual age.

Simple Solutions to Look Younger

There are several simple procedures that can help you look younger through the upper face and eye area.

Eyelid surgery includes the removal of excess tissue and tightening of structures under the skin to help you look refreshed and alert again. Nonsurgical treatments, such as BOTOX® Cosmetic injections, can further enhance the results of your eyelid surgery by smoothing out the wrinkles around your eyes for an outer appearance that better matches your inner vitality.
