Causes of Droopy Eyelids

Looking and feeling your best is invaluable. The natural aging process can impact your appearance. Fine lines, wrinkles, and skin sagging can impact the way you look. This is especially true when it comes to the skin around your eyes. Below you will find information on how to fix droopy eyelids. What prove some causes of droopy eyelids?

Causes of Droopy Eyelids

Droopy eyelids can make you look older than you are. People are often insecure about droopy eyelids as skin sagging can impact your eyes. The natural aging process results in a drop in collagen production. This generally occurs in your late 20s and continues throughout your lifetime. Collagen is an important protein found in your skin that helps keep it supple and voluminous. Collagen loss due to the natural aging process can lead to fine lines, wrinkles, and skin sagging. This can dramatically impact the skin around your eyes as it is thinner and more susceptible to damage.

In addition to the natural aging process, there are a number of other factors that can accelerate the aging process. Smoking, drinking excessively, poor diet, a sedentary lifestyle, sun exposure, poor sleep, and chronic stress can lead to fine lines, wrinkles, and skin sagging. This often impacts your eyes first and can lead to droopy eyelids.

Cosmetic surgery is necessary to address droopy eyelids. Upper eyelid surgery in Greenwich can effectively address droopy eyelids. The procedure involves the removal of excess fat and skin, in addition to tightening muscles around your eyes that have become stretched. This results in a more awake and youthful appearance. Upper eyelid surgery can reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and tighten the skin around your eyes.

The procedure is fast, smooth, and has a short recovery period. Eyelid surgery also involves minimal scarring as the incisions are strategically placed. The recovery process takes just a couple of weeks. You need to focus on your recovery the first few days and take things very slow for the first two weeks. Depending on your progress, you may need to avoid strenuous activity for the first month. Taking your recovery process seriously is important when it comes to your results.
