Premature Aging and Your Eyelids

Published on July 13, 2017

Aging produces a number of changes in the body and in our appearance. Usually, the way people look will reflect their age, but this not always true. Some people may look years younger than they actually are, while others may be showing signs of premature aging.

The eyes are one area of the face where premature aging can be very visible. The eyelids are very thin and sensitive, and their appearance can be easily disturbed. Aging causes the skin to lose strength and elasticity, and fat accumulation in the eyelids places additional stress on them. This can leave you with sagging and winkled eyelids that give your eyes an aged and withered appearance.

Cosmetic surgeon Dr. Robert True can restore the youthful appearance of your eyelids with blepharoplasty. This surgical procedure will allow your appearance to reflect how young you still feel on the inside. Contact us to schedule a consultation.
