As we age, the skin around our eyes loses much of its elasticity, making it very common to develop sagging eyelids. This effect is often much more advanced in smokers and in those who have had excessive sun exposure.
Eyelid reduction surgery, known as blepharoplasty, is a very common aesthetic procedure that can give the face a much more youthful appearance and involves the removal of the excess skin and fatty tissue and the tightening of the relaxed muscles. It can be applied to your upper eyelids (known as upper blepharoplasty), lower eyelids (lower blepharoplasty), or both together.
If eyelid reduction is something that interests you, then ask your optometrist if he/she can suggest a professional and experienced cosmetic surgeon who will be able to answer your questions and assess whether you are a viable candidate for surgery.
