Have you examined your eyelids lately? Are they looking feeling heavier? Looking tired, saggier or puffier?

What about what’s around your eyes? Do you have dark circles? Crows feet or wrinkles?

Most of us know that staying out of the sun, leading a healthy lifestyle and going in for some injections can prevent some signs of aging, but what if we are beyond that point?

Aging eyelids that begin to droop and sag can impact your vision, and we suggest that you address these concerns on time.

You may be a candidate for eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty) if:

  1. 1.      Your eyes are beginning to look smaller as if they’re disappearing
  2. 2.      The skin around your eyes look sunken or darker
  3. 3.      There is darkness or puffiness under your eyes
  4. 4.      Your eyelids are beginning to droop


How we age depends on our genetics and lifestyle. If you think you may be a good candidate for eyelid surgery, please consult with a board certified plastic surgeon.
