Do your eyes always look tired or sad, even when you feel well rested and ready to tackle the world? Do your eyes look hooded and have dark circles or bags that make you appear older and unrested? The delicate tissue around the eyes can be affected by aging and other factors, creating a perpetual sad, tired or aged appearance. Blepharoplasty, or eyelid surgery, can change the appearance of the eyes for a more youthful, happy appearance.

One of the main factors that affect the upper and lower eyelids is age. As skin sags and wrinkles with age, it can cause dark circles, bags, a hooded appearance to the eye and other issues. This can create a tired, sad expression even when the person feels rested and happy. However, not all eyelid issues are due to aging; some are genetic and can affect people of any age.

Eyelid Lift Surgical Techniques

To remove the appearance of heavy eyelids, dark circles or bags under the eyes, several different techniques can be used. Upper, lower and double eyelid surgery can be used as well as brow lifts and other cosmetic procedures. For genetic or ethnic changes to the eye, often both eyelids must be altered to change the shape or openness of the eyelids.
