Face Concern

Drooping Eyelids

Drooping eyelids are a common age-related concern in which the skin on the upper eyelid starts to sag.

The appearance of this condition can often make the eyes look especially tired, contributing to an overall weary look of the facial profile. Droopy eyelids can vary in severity from person to person, often getting more pronounced as one gets older. In some cases where the concern becomes quite significant, the skin can start to cover over the main part of the eye, which can have an effect on a person’s quality of vision. It usually affects both eyes however, it is not unusual for each eye to be affected differently.

As with the skin on the rest of the face and body, this condition is the result of the changing structure of the skin over time. With the growing popularity of facial aesthetics, people are becoming more aware of the role that declining levels of collagen and elastin are having on their appearance. It is becoming well known that these substances deplete from early adulthood, leading to overlying skin that is thinner, weaker and lesser in volume.

For many people the eyes receive a lot of attention, finding that over the years they have been rubbed and pulled about in situations such as: when tired, with allergies / infections, applying eye drops, applying and removing make-up or inserting contact lenses. These frequent actions when coupled with ageing skin, can contribute to the delicate skin around the eyes becoming stretched.

Rejuvenating the appearance of the eyes and restoring a more youthful look is very much in demand these days. There are a number of treatments available, and Real Plastic Surgery specialise in procedures that provide longer-term results. Blepharoplasty focuses on removing and tightening the skin on the upper eyelids, opening up the eyes and creating a more refreshed appearance.
