When considering the areas that age the face, the eyelids are not usually high on most people’s lists. Many will consider the brow, jawline, and neck much more important to overall aging. However, the eyelids do play an important role in a youthful appearance. Let’s take a deeper look into the question, “Does blepharoplasty make you look younger?”

Not everyone will experience significant aging in the eyelids. Other than crow’s feet, many will not see significant sagging until well after they have entered advanced age. Some people though are susceptible to accumulating extra skin on the upper or lower eyelids. Sometimes this can cause droopy eyelids. In extreme cases, it can even interfere with vision.

In patients who have sagging eyelids or extra skin, addressing this via blepharoplasty surgery can take years off their appearance alone. It can open up the eye area for a more youthful appearance that many will not be able to immediately place what changed. It can also relieve some vision problems if present. 

Blepharoplasty surgery is also frequently performed with brow lift or facelift surgery which only further enhances results. To learn more and schedule a consultation with Dr. David Santos, call us at 206-430-1035. You can also reach out online via Price Simulator, chat, and contact form.
