ABOUT THE PROCEDURE
Aging skin changes because collagen fibers lose their rigid structure, so elasticity of the skin decreases. In addition, skin is constantly exposed to gravity, therefore tissues that form eyelids start to noticeably accumulate at the top and bottom eyelids. Additional tissue layer in the lower eyelids starts to wrinkle and on the top eyelids it starts getting heavy and drops on the lids, causing noticeably more narrow field of view.
Fat in the eye socket can also cause appearance of “swollen” eyelids, as the thin membrane, which holds the fatty tissue in placeb, becomes weaker in time. It also leads to the appearance of “under eye bags”.
