Eyes are one of the most common areas that show aging on the face. With age, skin’s collagen decreases and skin elasticity declines. The combination of these can cause excess skin to sag in areas around the eye, causing you to look tired all of the time. When non-surgical treatments are no longer effective, a blepharoplasty may be in order.
This surgical procedure involves removing excess skin from the upper and/or lower eyelids. The result of this procedure is the brighter eyes and a significantly more youthful appearance. This procedure can also address chronic puffiness and “bags” under the eyes as well.
A blepharoplasty can be performed for both aesthetic and functional improvement. At times, the skin around the eye may begin to droop and obscure vision. At that time, it is possible insurance may cover the procedure with proper documentation.
