The eyelid area is intertwined with the structures both above (brows and forehead) and below (cheeks and lower face) so changes that go on in those areas affect the eyelids. Genetics plays a big factor as do environmental issues such and smoking and allergies.
All these conditions lead to development of excess drooping skin in the upper eyelids and excess skin and bags in the lower eyelids. The eyelid structures themselves may weaken and droop either blocking vision from above or sagging in the lower lids causing irritation and dry eyes.
The upper lids are generally treated by removal of the excess skin and some of the fat. Some patients may need elevation of the brow areas as well, known as a browlift. In some cases, additional work may need to be done to improve upper eyelid function.
The lower eyelids are treated by removal of excess fat, resulting in the appearance of “bags”, as well as some skin if needed. Some patients require tightening of the lower eyelid to provide better structural support.
