The substances like collagen, providing the firmness of our skin and giving them a fresh and lively appearance will be reduced or lose their function in time. The eyebrows and eyelids are subject to this effect, too.
The skin in these regions becomes loose and saggy. In addition, lower eyelid bags may occur due to the anterior herniation of the fatty tissues.
Depressed eyebrows, sagging eyelids, and eyelid bags may cause the individual to look tired, unhappy, or older more than s/he is.
Removing the excess skin of the eyelids or eyebags is doable by the eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty). Furthermore, alleviation of the problems with sight due to the sagging eyelids is also possible.
Depending on the complaints of the individual, reconstruction of either one of the upper and lower eyelids or a combination of both can be performed. The excess skin tissue and the lower eyelid bags are removed during the eyelid surgeries. Some scarring will remain on the eyelids after the surgery. However, it is not recognizable as it is very well camouflaged.
