Surgical Correction of the Eyes For the Middle-aged

Aging leads to droopy eyes secondary to decreased elasticity of the skin, or fat accumulation that stretches the skin below the eye. There are several surgical options for the middle-aged clients desiring to improve their eye appearance. Most popular procedures include upper blepharoplasty and browpexy, which corrects sagging eyelids, and also component lower blepharoplasty (LOWER BLEPHAROPLASTY) in which bulging flesh is removed and corrected below the eye.

What is Lower Blelpharoplasty?

This is a procedure which corrects wrinkles, bulging fat pocket and skin sagging below the eye.

The skin sags with aging. It also becomes thinner and losing elasticity. As the conjunctiva and muscles become loose around the eyes, fat deposits bulge out in the sagging skin, giving the patient a grumpy impression. In such cases, sagging skin is pulled up and an excessive skin is resected to flatten out the skin under the eyes.
This procedure is a surgical approach to attain a more youthful appearance of the eyes.
