Many people, both men and women, suffer from a slackening and wrinkling of the skin of the eyelids. A slackened skin of the upper eyelids creating skin creases can give a sense of fatigue and heaviness, limit the field of vision, and cause irritations to the skin and the eyes. Slackened and heavy upper eyelids can, in some cases, also cause headaches.
These slackened upper eyelids and especially the ‘bags’ under the lower eyelids can make you look older than you actually are. Bags under the lower eyelids are often, unjustifiably, regarded as a result of an unhealthy and exuberant lifestyle. The cause of the slackening of the eyelids is, in addition to ageing, often hereditary. Even young people can experience this problem. Fortunately, only a small procedure can already give a wonderful result. An eyelid correction is one of the most commonly performed plastic surgery procedures.
