With age, facial soft tissue including the skin and underlying fat of the lower lid wither, atrophy and shrink causing baggy eyelids. With the loss of youthful skin elasticity and support, fat pockets around the eye may move forward causing a baggy appearance or “tired bags” under the eyelids.
In addition, with loss of skin elasticity and collagen, repeated opening and closing of the eyelids and squinting over time can cause excessive wrinkling of the lower eyelid skin which can cause an aged appearance.
Patients with lower eyelid bags are experiencing a common area of facial aging, specifically bags and hallowing of the lower lid. Patients suffering from lower baggy eyelids can be treated at the SpaMedica Toronto Cosmetic Plastic Surgery Centre by Toronto cosmetic surgeon and owner of SpaMedica, Dr. Stephen Mulholland, using a variety of techniques.
