Drooping eyelids are a common eye condition which may influence you to consider ocular plastic surgery. As you age, you see the effects of gravity on your skin. Delicate tissues around the eyes lose elasticity, and skin can accumulate above or below the eyes, making you look older and fatigued. Sagging skin can also interfere with your vision.
Dermatochalasis is an eye condition caused by excessive skin around your upper eyelid, lower eyelid or both. It is usually associated with older age, but younger individuals can be affected by dermatochalasis as well. Dermatochalasis tends to cause more problems on the upper eyelid because it can obstruct your visual field.
