As a person ages, the skin surrounding the eyes tends to lose elasticity and the area under the eyes accumulates excess fat. This can cause the face to appear bloated, giving it an older appearance. In many cases, eyelids become drooped, affecting the overall appearance of one’s face. In severe cases, sagging skin can hinder normal eyesight. Blepharoplasty is a surgical procedure that can restore a youthful appearance to the eye area.
