The slightest of muscle movements around the eyes can communicate so much; it can be distressing when the signs of aging around the eyes misrepresent how we feel. Baggy eyes and sagging eyelids can make us look tired and unrested even when we are feeling our best.


Visible Effects

Persistently puffy eyes can evolve into baggy eyes and sagging eyelids which add years to our appearance and, in some cases, a droopy eyelid can interfere with eyesight.

Underlying Causes

Sun damage, family history, allergies, sleep deprivation, fluid retention due to excess salt in the diet, lifestyle factors and hormonal fluctuations can contribute to the appearance of baggy eyes. Furthermore, in time, the delicate skin around the eyes can begin to thin as swelling simultaneously stretches, leaving eye skin loose and leading to wrinkles and sagging. Lastly, the fat pads under the eye can enlarge or descend while weakening musculature lets them hang as bags.


Depending on the condition of the skin, non-invasive dermal fillers and neuromodulators, like BOTOX COSMETIC® treatments, can be quite effective for rejuvenating the appearance of the eyes. In some cases, eye lid surgery, known as blepharoplasty, may be recommended for optimal results. This surgery may be focused on the upper eye lid, underneath the eye or both. While it focuses on removing excess skin from the upper lids and bags under the eyes, blepharoplasty does not lift the brow or address crow's feet. A blend of non-invasive procedures and surgery may be ideal. As a centre for aesthetic dermatology and facial cosmetic surgery, Cutis is well appointed to address concerns with aging around the eyes.
