Why do we get them?
Droopy skin and fat around the eyes is a completely normal part of the ageing process. It happens when the skin loses its elasticity as it starts to produce less collagen, and when muscles around the eyes become tired and less efficient.
Prevention and Reduction
It can be difficult to prevent sagging eyelids and for some people it’s a hereditary condition that’s determined by our genetic ability to produce enough collagen to keep our skin firm and youthful. However, it’s really important to keep the skin hydrated and protected from the sun’s harmful UV rays and the pollution of city living. You can keep wrinkles and sagging skin at bay for longer by using moisturiser with SPF15 or higher, eating plenty of fresh fruit and vegetables, staying hydrating and leading a healthy, active life.
Effective treatments for Sagging Eyelids and Droopy eyes
Our specialist cosmetic surgeons have years of experience in treating sagging eyelids. At The Harley Medical Group we perform Blepharoplasty (eye bag removal), brow lifts, mini facelifts and full facelifts, as well as non-surgical treatments that can be used to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes. Blepharoplasty surgery is a very simple and effective procedure which works by removing fatty deposits underneath the eyebrows and eyes, and tightening the muscles and skin to open up the area around the eyes and reducing the appearance of wrinkles.
