With time and age, both the upper and lower eyelids can begin to sag and droop, causing a tired appearance even when you feel perfectly energized. In severe cases where the upper lids are drooping dramatically, it can even begin to interfere with vision and limit a person’s eyesight. Lower eyelids can also sag so deeply that the white of the eye is visible beneath the iris. An eyelift procedure can correct these issues, improving eyesight and revitalizing your appearance.

What causes drooping eyelids?

As with all wrinkles and sags, drooping eyelids are a normal part of the aging process. Collagen is the tissue that gives our skin its structure and tautness. As we age, the levels of collagen in our skin gradually decrease, causing our skin to slowly lose its shape and be pulled downward by the constant tug of gravity.

Small cushions of fat provide padding between our eyes and the bones of the eye sockets. These cushions are held in place by a thin membrane. As we age, the membrane can slowly deteriorate, and fatty deposits slip down, gathering beneath the eyelids and causing a bulging, puffy appearance.

Get Rid of Those Puffy, Drooping Eyelids

Eyelids that droop and sag or have sinking fat deposits are a normal byproduct of aging, but when they reach the point of interfering with your vision or detracting from your appearance, it may be time to consider an eye lift. No procedure can fully halt the aging process, but an eyelift can take years off your appearance, improve your eyesight, and reenergize your face.
