One of the most common concerns we hear from patients about their eyes relates to the sagging or hooding of the upper eyelids.
Over time, collagen and elastin production in the skin slows down, and in combination with environmental factors (sun exposure, smoking, frequent rubbing of the eyes) the skin above the eyes could begin to sag and fold over. When skin on the upper eyelid sags it could create a hooding effect around the eye. This heavy hooding effect results in a tired, angry, even unfriendly appearance. It affects the way that make-up looks and can even obstruct one’s vision.
A surgical eye lift, or blepharoplasty will cut away the excess skin on the eyelid and dramatically improve the appearance of the eyelid. If you are not yet a candidate for an eye lift or are interested in a non-invasive treatment option to improve the appearance of the upper eyelid, Dermatology on Bloor has solutions for you.
