The eyebrows may also droop and sag (a condition called brow ptosis) and in some cases may actually go higher than their youthful position, altering the facial appearance dramatically.
Age, hereditary factors, sun exposure and smoking all contribute to this process. Loose or baggy lids detract from your overall appearance and make you look tired or older.
When the brow droops, it crowds more skin down over the upper lids and exaggerates the hooding and crow’s feet at the outer corners of the eyes, making you look sad, tired or angry. When severe enough, the upper eyelid skin may hang over the lashes and obstruct peripheral vision.
