Many people suffer from sleepy-looking eyes, even when they’ve gotten a full seven to nine hours of sleep. While some individuals can find relief by treating an underlying condition, such as allergies, others have a tired eye appearance that won’t seem to go away. Since the anatomy of a person’s facial tissue changes as they age, eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty) is sometimes the most effective method of treating a chronically tired look. Men and women who can benefit from the cosmetic procedure often have a fatigued eye appearance due to one or more of the following:
- Drooping upper eyelids from the muscles becoming weaker
- Fat deposits in the upper eyelids leading to sagging tissue
- Puffiness underneath the eyes, often caused by fat buildup
- Dark circles resulting from under-eye bags
Depending on the specific concerns leading to your tired eye appearance, our plastic surgeons may recommend surgery on the upper and/or lower eyelids to address excess fat or lax muscles. The result is more alert and refreshed eyes for a naturally youthful facial aesthetic.
