Many factors contribute to aging eyes including: loss of elasticity, gravity, smoking and sun damage. These factors can cause the supporting tissues to deteriorate, allowing the eye to drop and sag. Also, deflation of the upper half of the face can lead to a deepening of the crease at the eyelid cheek junction (tear trough deformity). This tear trough deformity produces dark circles under your lower eyelids that are near impossible to cover with makeup.

Blepharoplasty is a surgical procedure to improve the appearance of the upper and lower eyelids by tightening muscles and tissue and/or removing excess fat. This procedure can be performed on women and men alike, offering a younger more refreshed look that is reflected across the entire face. The popularity of this procedure reflects the importance of the eyes in perfecting ones overall appearance. If you are unhappy with the appearance of your eyes you may want to consider blepharoplasty to improve your look and boost your confidence through a safe procedure with minimum down time. When doing blepharoplasty surgery, Dr. Harrison feels that addressing the lids alone cannot completely correct the aging eye. Something needs to be done to the tear trough deformity in order to blend the lid cheek junction.
