Your eyes are often the first thing people notice about your face and are important aspect of facial attractiveness. The eyelids protect one’s eyes in addition to adding to their cosmetic appearance.
Unfortunately, over time your upper and/or lower eyelids may become “droopy” or “baggy” because the eyelid skin stretches, muscles weaken, and fat pockets bulge and become more prominent. This most commonly occurs because of the ageing process but also may be a hereditary condition that runs in your family. Your eyebrows also may sag or droop as a part of the same process.
Aesthetically, such conditions may detract from the overall attractiveness of one’s eyes and cause a “tired” or older appearance. When severe, these conditions also may cause functional problems, such as impaired field of vision (baggy upper eyelids) or difficulty wearing glasses (baggy lower eyelids).
