The natural aging of the skin is a normal and in no way pathological process. The older we get, the drier and thinner the skin becomes. Especially around the mouth and eyes wrinkles form increasingly. Skin aging develops individually. Diseases or massive weight loss can accelerate the skin changes.
The visible aging process is based on the age-related loss of elasticity of the soft tissues (connective tissue, musculature and skin). In the area of the eyelids, gravity promotes drooping and changes in shape of the older and increasingly droopy eyelids.
Drooping eyelid and bags under the eyes
The upper eyelids affected by the thin skin, which can cause drooping eyelid. In this case, the connective tissue membrane that holds the fat in which the eyeball is embedded in the eye socket increasingly loses its firmness. In addition, sagging in the forehead area, which occurs with age, can lead to drooping of the brows and, in combination, increase the appearance of droopy upper eyelids.
The lower eyelids affected by drooping can cause bags under the eyes. This involves a protrusion of fat originally positioned in the orbit behind the septum orbitale.
Functional and aesthetic correction of the eyelids
Lifting enables functional and also aesthetic correction of the eyelids. This can be done even in healthy people. The procedure can help improve the quality of life and self-esteem. In this case, tired and exhausted eye parts are a thing of the past.
