In the first part of this article, we talked about facial aging signs bothering patients in their 50’s. Excess skin in the eyelids is also a common reason motivating patients to seek facial rejuvenation treatments.

Looking young at the age of 50 : treating eyelids and breasts ptosis


Over time, skin laxity causes excess skin in the eyelids, which tends to make them sag and the face look sad. On the other hand, excess fat tends to accumulate in the lower eyelids. Fat deposits in this area are commonly called under eye bags and make the face look tired.

Blepharoplasty surgery, or eyelid lift, is a cosmetic surgery designed to correct sagging upper eyelids and remove under eye bags in order for the face to look rested and refreshed. When the eye area is burdened with excess skin and under eye bags, blepharoplasty offers excellent results and works well when combined with the face and neck lift.

Breast surgery

Several events in women’s life such as pregnancy, breastfeeding, weight fluctuations or simply aging can affect breast size and position. Breast lift surgery, or mastopexy, is intended to correct breast sagging (which is called breast ptosis) and reshape the breasts. Breast augmentation is another procedure designed to correct breast volume loss. It can be achieved with implants or fat grafting. Breast augmentation and breast lift are often combined to achieve superior results. Women can also choose breast reduction if excess breast tissue and the associated breast ptosis are the issue.

When tissue laxity affects the muscle layer of the face as well as the skin in the whole body, aging signs inevitably become visible. While non-invasive treatments can delay and alleviate aging signs, only surgery can get rid of excess skin in the face, breasts, lower stomach thighs and other areas. If aging signs have become a problem and you are wondering what your options are, get in touch with a qualified surgeon by contacting Dr.Balti.
