When it comes to expressing your deepest thoughts and emotions, there is probably no facial feature quite as important as your eyes. Delivering a positive impression with reassuring eye contact is one of the most crucial aspects of our business and social interactions. Consider the wealth of expressions we commonly use to indicate positive traits –“Bright-eyed”, “He looked me in the eye”, “Seeing is believing.” Clearly, the ‘eyes’ have it. When they look tired, saggy or puffy, more than just your appearance may suffer – the image you project to others is affected as well.
Drooping, overhung upper lids and sagging lower lids can happen to anyone. Eyelid problems often are one of the first signs of aging, but even young people can be affected. Chronic allergies can cause the eyelids to swell, speeding the development of overhanging upper lids or bags under the eyes. Sun exposure, excess squinting and habitual eye-rubbing can promote sagginess. Heredity also plays a part.

Blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery)
The scientific term for eyelid surgery is blepharoplasty. This encompasses the various techniques used to remove excess skin, muscle, and fatty tissue from either (or both) the upper and lower eyelids. It’s a relatively simple procedure, but it can offer dramatic results. It often is combined with other facial plastic surgery procedures, such as browlift, facelift or skin resurfacing.
Your eyes may be your most important facial feature. If your eyes make you seem droopy, sad or tired, blepharoplasty can open them up dramatically and give you a fresher, brighter, more youthful appearance.
