The eyelid skin is the thinnest in the body and undergoes significant ageing changes. The elastic fibers are lost leading to eyelid sagging. This can cause excess amount of skin in the upper and lower eyelids.
The upper lid dermatochalasis can cause upper lid heaviness, strain and in advanced cases it can affect the visual field.
In the lower lids, the excess amount of skin along with the bulging of the orbital fat give the appearance of eyelid ‘bags’ giving a tired look.
