Aging is a natural process of changes over time, and changes in the skin are one of the most noticeable signs of aging. Environmental factors, heredity, nutrition, and sun exposure are some of the most important elements that determine skin quality. As the skin is negatively affected by these factors, the connective tissue in the skin changes and strength and elasticity are reduced. This leads to poor skin quality and the development of loose skin and wrinkles.
Windows to the Soul
The eyes convey a great deal of emotion and meaning; a simple look can often be more powerful than words. Most people look at a person’s eyes when they first meet or encounter them, which makes signs of aging around the eyes among the most visible and detrimental of physical characteristics. Drooping eyelids with wrinkles and loose skin can make us appear tired, sad, or even angry despite our actual mood. Fortunately, Dr. Jaime Rodriguez Sierra offers eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty) to provide his patients with a rejuvenated facial appearance.
Eyelid surgery removes excess fatty deposits and loose skin from the upper and/or lower eyelids (depending on the patient’s needs) to restore a more youthful, friendly, and alert appearance.
Blepharoplasty can improve the following conditions:
- Puffiness in the upper eyelids
- Bags below the eyes
- Drooping upper and lower eyelids
- Loose skin/folds
- Wrinkles and fine lines
- Impaired vision
Drooping upper eyelids may hang down and partially block a person’s vision. Eyelid surgery can restore a person’s vision by eliminating the excess fat and skin that contribute to this drooping. Eyelid surgery also can correct sagging lower eyelids that may hang down and show the white part of the eye below the colored iris.
As excess fat deposits and sagging skin that cause bags, puffiness, wrinkles, and fine lines are eliminated from around the eyes, patients look better rested and attain a more youthful, healthy, and happy appearance.
